BUSY DERBY WEEKEND FOR COMBINE


The weekend of 8th /9th September became one of the busiest for competing members of the East Down Combine as both the Talbenny and Skibbereen Young Derbies were being flown plus because of unfavorable weather conditions earlier in that week the INFC Penzance Grand National Young Bird race had also been postponed until the week end and added to that was the fact that Saturday?s weather was unsuitable for any racing so all three races took place on the Sunday ,and credit to all officials for the work they had to put into reorganising all of this so that all races could and were able to be run smoothly .First away were the Penzance National birds at 7.45am into a light SW wind followed at 9.30am by the EDC Skibbereen Derby birds into a WSW wind with the EDC Talbenny Derby birds away at 9.35am into a W Wind so there is a lot of news in all of this .


First of all many congratulations to Downpatrick Premier members Telford Bros & S & J Milligan on winning the INFC National Penzance on 1249 ypm , Harper & Young of Cloughey on winning Skibbereen on 1863 ypm and W Hardy & son (Annsborough) on winning Talbenny on 1158 ypm . This week I have the results in the various competing combine clubs in the two Derby races etc and will add further detail next week plus the final Combine race of the Season again from Skibbereen this being the Ken McConaghie Derby ,scheduled for Saturday Sept 15th


So starting with Skibbereen Derby and with the WSW wind the leading velocities were well over the mile a minute with the top three in the Open being ;

1 Harper & Young (Cloughey)
2 R Connolly ( Downpatrick Premier )
3 J & R Young (Portavogie )


These three were also the top three in the East Section . Top three in the West section were :

1 P & C McComb ( Killyleagh Central )
2 McCartan & Woodsides (Crossgar )
3 Cowan & McCartney ( Dundonald)


The full result plus the nominated bird result was;
