BURTON & SOUTH DERBYSHIRE FEDERATION.

DIFFICULT DAY FROM HULLAVINGTON SEES MARK WILLIAMSON OF ASHBOURNE TAKE 1ST FED AND FOUR IN TOP SEVEN.

Mark Williamson

DUE TO A POOR WEATHER FORECAST AND STORM HANNAH PRODUCING WIND SPEEDS IN EXCESS OF 40 MPH INLAND, THE FEDERATION DELAYED THE SECOND RACE OF THE SEASON FROM HULLAVINGTON BY 24 HOURS.  SUNDAY WAS A MUCH CALMER DAY, WITH BRIGHTER SKIES AND A GENTLE NORTHERLY WIND, LIBERATION WAS HELD BACK UNTIL IT WARMED UP A BIT, AND THE CONVOY WERE RELEASED AT 11-25 INTO A NORTH WEST WIND. IT CERTAINLY PROVED A MUCH HARDER RACE THAN WE ALL THOUGHT, HARD TO EXPLAIN WHY; VISIBILITY WAS PERFECT AT THE LIB SITE AND HERE IN BURTON. THE WIND WAS GENERALLY LIGHT, TEMPERATURES WERE AROUND THE 14- 15 DEGREES, THE ONLY REASONS COULD BE, IS THAT THE BIRDS DIDN’T CLEAR STRAIGHT AWAY; THERE WAS A WEATHER PROBLEM EN ROUTE (ALTHOUGH WEATHER APPS SHOWED NO RAIN ABOUT); OR THERE WAS SOMETHING IN THE ATMOSPHERE? IN GENERAL RACING FROM CHELTENHAM AND WORCESTER AREAS PROVED SIMILAR. WHAT FOLLOWED WAS A RACE WITH BIG GAPS BETWEEN ARRIVALS, BUT THE BIRDS DID COME BANG ON LINE, BUT THEY KNEW THEY’D BEEN, WINGS DOWN WAS COMMON. NOW I’VE RECEIVED THE FED RESULT, I’VE ALWAYS ASSUMED THAT WHEN A FURTHER FLYING LOFT WINS AGAINST A HEAD WIND, IT USUALLY MEANS THAT THE BIRDS DIDN’T HAVE A GREAT START?

124 MEMBERS SENT 2681 BIRDS WHICH WERE LIBERATED AT 11-25 INTO A NORTH WESTERLY WIND, CONGRATULATIONS TO MARK WILLIAMSON OF THE ASHBOURNE FLYING CLUB, MARK TOOK 1ST; 3RD; 5TH; AND 7TH FED ON 1291;1258; 1255; AND 1227.
