Club reporters aren't very forthcoming with the race details Guys and Gal's, which is such a shame for you and your hardworking birds. We can't give you or your birds "Fame", if we don't hear from your clubs. Now the soap-box is away, were looking forward to next week's race from Poole. We are sure you Guys and Gals are too. Weather looks bit "iffy" so it may be brollies and wellies. Until next week, Good Luck and take care. Bye for now,
