Lanarkshire Federation - Kelso Race - 20-09-21

Lanarkshire Federation - Kelso Race

This week takes us to the last race of the Lanarkshire Programme, we are back at Kelso in the Scottish borders for a come back race. It’s around the 60 mile mark for the members.

The very small convoy of 500 birds and two Fauldhouse crates were liberated at 09:45 hrs into a strong west wind in overcast conditions. The winners took around 1hr 20 minutes for the journey but most birds appeared to struggle with many reporting missing birds.

The Lanarkshire, like all federations have took a real hammering this year with losses probable at a record high, if you competed in every race you weren't left with many. Members need to think of the welfare of the birds and come up with a better race programme. This is for the future of their flock and also the future of their federation. Shorter races from the same race point could help! We have to change or the sport will not survive.

I think it would be better to have the race programme meeting a few weeks after the end of the season, when the previous season is still raw in their minds and not five month later. Just my view!

This weeks winner of 1st & 2nd Open federation is Barclay McCrindle of Chapelhall club who have took the federation by storm and has showed everyone how to fly pigeons!. They had six pigeons away and take 1st & 2nd Open federation. Remarkable flying!.

Barclay McCrindle with Wooler 1 federation winner 20 09 21
Barclay tops the federation for the fifth time in seven races, brilliant flying!

They have been at the top all season and win the federation Young Bird Averages. Well done Barclay Snr & Jnr
