The New North Road Amalgamation
It’s been a while since I last put pen to paper but it’s been rather busy with the 800 futurity rings and selling of the birds plus pairing and breeding of my own pigeons as well as a full time job and a young family it becomes time consuming but in the end you get there and it is what you make it.
Some updates and events to announce now the New North Road Amalgamations 2022 Futurity race scheme made £55,195 this being the grand double chancer prize fund for fanciers who purchased rings in both sections of north & south sections for each section the prize fund is as follows; North Section made £25,340 & the south section making £29,855 and this is being flown from Alnwick (4204) on the 17/9/22 good luck to all and I would personally like to thank the following people for their helping support and kind services firstly my wife for putting up with all the time dealing with it all I spent and the fanciers of Shaun Pilgrim, Graham & Sue Watkin, John & Peter Norris, Phil & Steve Walker, Dave Smith, Tom Harris, John Humphries & Ray & Rose Lander many thanks for what you do and have done physically and behind the scenes.
Something new for the 2022 programme with the old birds to celebrate the Queens Jubilee we have granted permission to hold a jubilee race from Balmoral with a special code of (8207) RPRA code to obtain distances for the members a thanks must go to Julia Field of the RPRA for arranging this for us on the distances side of things and to john Humphries aiding organiser for welcoming us to attend this special event this will also be a yearling Futurity classic race for the 2021 Saint Boswells futurity birds giving the breeders and owners another chance and bonding a team spirit and it’s always interesting to see what the birds can do as yearlings and what made it through the seasons so something to look forward to.
