Ilkeston Bulls Head Flying Club Presentation 2014
Saturday November 15th was the annual presentation evening for the Ilkeston Bulls Head Flying Club. Presenting the prizes and guests of honour for the evening was the successful Derby Fancier Roy Gregory along with his wife Christine.
The hard working secretary Derek Towers who has worked tirelessly since taking office to make the club the successful club it is today gave a short speech welcoming everyone and thanking the members for their support over the 2014 season.
After the speech everyone had a first class meal with the choice of either chicken or beef then it was on to the presentation.
Top prize winner for the 2014 season and only flying the young programme was Rob Pearson who with his outstanding team of young birds also took many federation positions. But due to work commitments he was unable to attend the presentation evening. In his club Rob won 7x1sts, 7x2nds, 8x3rds & 7x4ths.
Runners up were the man & wife partnership Mr & Mrs John Dowd winning 4x1sts, 7x2nds, 5x3rds & 8x4ths winning prize money of £376.
Next up was Roger & Mark Duffield winning 6x1sts, 4x2nds, 5x3rds & 5x4ths and prize money of £169.
Rick Shelton came next winning 5x1sts, 3x2nds, 6x3rds & 4x4ths and prize money of £149.
Next came Neil Inger 1x1st & 2x2nds and prize money of £33 followed by Frank Pilgrim, Shaun Pilgrim & Derek Towers (club secretary) winning smaller amounts.
A special mention must go to two young ladies who have worked tirelessly over the 2014 season. Firstly Lisa Inger who on a Friday & Saturday nights helps out with the E.T.S clocks and Shaun Pilgrim's partner Rachel who runs the accounts and does the spread sheets and the balance sheet for the two bird section.
After the presentation there was a raffle with some excellent prizes to be won which was followed by the presentation of a bouquet of flowers to Christine Gregory, Lisa Inger and the secretary's wife Ilene. My wife and I would like to say thank you to the officials & members for inviting us along for a very enjoyable evening.
