LANARKSHIRE FEDERATION

Tom Corrie

Otterburn 1 - April 2014

Saturday 19th April. In brilliant sunshine Dave Young (race controller) got this year’s racing under way at 10am from Otterburn, which is around 80 odd miles back into Central Scotland. The wind was light south east which always spells fast racing with plenty of heat in the air. The birds made light work of the journey making velocities into the 1700s. Most lofts reported good returns with the odd yearling or late bred adrift. The birds appeared to hold the federations training route coming up the M74, breaking to their lofts around this area. East winds can sometimes cause havoc with the yearlings but this was south rather than north east and the race went without incident. Well done to all this week’s club and section and open winners. Pictures of interest this week are of the new set up of Lanarkshire Champion loft of GWP Macaloney.
