Kirkfieldbank Homing & Sporting Club, South Lanarkshire Federation, Presentation 2013

This year's presentation on 15th November took place in the Crown bar in Lanark, a stone's throw away from the club premises. Again a cracking meal was delivered by the establishment and the venue really is conducive to a great night. Members and friends attended to congratulate the best performance lofts in 2013. This year's special guests Robert Richardson from Larkhall and John Leggatt from Ferniegair near Hamilton were warmly welcomed by the hall and did a fine job on the panel, giving their views on up-to-date aspects in the sport including possible illicit drug use in pigeons, more than one National in Scottish racing, feeding, medication, YB Sickness and much more. With a life-time of pigeon knowledge from these well established fanciers the hall enjoyed a healthy discussion. John Frood gave us the background of the guests' past achievements that included first section Alencon.

This year's top prize winner was Wullie Johnstone who resides in Carluke. Wullie is a top man who dedicates his time and effort for the better of the club, federation and SNRPC. He has been consistent at club and federation level with his birds showing their best at National level being 1st & 2nd section E in the big events.
