Lanarkshire Federation - Catterick Race 1-09-18

This weeks Catterick in Yorkshire race was a real tough affair with many pigeons not homing,the youngsters really struggled with some clubs reporting horrendous returns at clocking,Every year we seem to get this race that floors a lot of lofts. This wasn't good for next weeks open race.

We are all our own race controllers and with the convoy down 2,000 on last week a lot of members must not have liked the forecast and held back their team.

The birds were away at 10 am in a south east wind and with around 137 miles flight back into Central Scotland.The birds took around 3hrs 20 minutes for the winners but the birds were well strung out with many empty perches.This is the problem with the British climate,the road back to Lanarkshire couldnt have been good..Just your luck at times as federations racing up the east coast had great racing with 100 % returns,

This weeks winner is the highly successful John Short of Caldercruix on the east side of the federation,
John has invested in some top class stock and is a very hard man to beat each week.

John Short this weeks 1st Open Lanarkshire federation
