The Nottingham North Road Federation
The federations old bird season is now in full swing and the federation was racing from Darlington cattle market in County Durham on the 29/5/21 and the head convoyer Mr Ian Daikin got the race on its way at 11.30 am into a west wind.
The top 10 in the federation were as follows, taking first spot was Paul Maiden of Oakham flying 135 miles and being far from the federation’s furthest flier with a yearling jealousy flown hen she certainly broke away, I think we require fellow federation member Paul crooks who is a fire safety officer to lend Paul Maiden a fire blanket for her nest box as she was on fire for this race. She is a Herman Cuesters X Houben, her line breeding sire originates from Welsh National flying club winning Anthony Buttigieg where Anthony has achieved some outstanding performances on the north road and the east to west route. His National winner that was bred by the Premier Stud the mother a Houben hen that herself is a winner from a very difficult Perth race for Paul her winning velocity was 1443.
