This week takes us to Worksop, the largest town in the Bassetlaw district of Nottinghamshire, England. Worksop lies on the River Ryton, and is located at the northern edge of Sherwood Forest. Worksop is located 19 miles east-south-east of Sheffield.This week 3,300 birds plus 9 Fauldhoue club baskets were race marked on the Saturday for a Sunday race.They were liberated at 07 30hrs in a light south west wind for the 214 miles flight back into Central Scotland.The winner hit the boards for GWP Macaloney of Airdrie around 12 04hrs to record a very decent 1370ypm.This was followed through the trap by its loft mate to take 1st& 2nd Open Lanarkshire federation.They also win the yearling derby with their brilliant check cock "Caeser" This being his second 1st Open of the season..Well done Wullie & Paul on another outstanding performance.The Macaloneys had a brilliant race recording seven in the top fifteen of the section result .
"Caeser "This weeks 1st Open federation for GWP Macaloney
Like most races over 200 miles the birds were more strung out, but over the piece it was a good race for the federation.Again thanks to our convoyer/race controller Tommy McDonnagh for his dedication to the well fair of the pigeons.
This weekend again the federation is racing from Kelso and also convoying with the SNFC to Maidstone.So a bit of something for everyone!
