  1. Are any of you lads paired up yet ,my shed is not far from the house so facing south the sun hits it about March i dont race youngsters a lot if any so no hurry for me .What guides your pairing time ,just a thought see if any fowk still looking on here ?? where have fowk gone . Hope you all had a good Christmas .

  2. What is getting me is where is the balance sheet should it nae be out yet regardless of the confusion in the fed the secretary should be posting them out .Each FED member has the right to go over this prior to any meeting .The thing that amazes me is how does Mr Birnie think it possible to drag himself back from this shambles so get the balance sheet out to give us some thing to read while this gets sorted .This reminds me of Nero fiddled as Rome burned !! Mr Birnie is this you ? give us a break .

  3. I was just thinking about buying a hoover for the loft floor ,question is do they really do the job without getting blocked .I have plastic grills on floor so the birds dirt is not tramped on so it is real loose,the one i was looking at was the one sold by Pallets ,what do you lads think.

  4. IMO, trying to pull the blinkers over each and every Federation members eyes by saying no venue could be found for AGM  leaves me having considerable doubt about a postal vote .I also have at this time reservations on part of the letter received this week stating that if winning Mr Birnie and his committee would take care of any other agenda ,to much going on to leave as is .I think the amount of confusing issues being raised by present top table warrant no less than a proper AGM .I have just finished reading the 2021 balance sheet for the SHU and i noticed it stated that the North of Scotland Fed had 110 members that would not reflect the correct numbers with the lads breaking away to race with Moray Fed would it ???.The other thing i would ask when are we going to get our balance sheet as this would have to come out before agm would it not ?. I have just posted back my vote choosing option B as i believe any one with a point of view or strong opinion should have the right to be heard in a democratic way.

  8. I have had a helish 3 month with COPD and Angina playing me up and on top of that took bluddy Covid so its made my probs worse now ended of needing oxygen when going about .But thanks for your replys .

  9. In Scotland are you allowed for feds to have their meetings ,or what is the rulings as regards the Scottish Governments restrictions .I have lost track of the changes that have been made .

  10. Being sick of young bird losses over the years ie bad weather ,cancellations ,hold overs ,yb sitting in a transporter in humid thundery  conditions the list goes on and on , didnt bother pairing early rung my first youngster mid to late April /May  just fly them at home . I know i probably lose some next year but at least they will have a better chance IMO racing as old birds i will just wait and see .

  11. i doubt its proven to be sticky kind down that side as well then .Its been a hard kind of year again by all accounts with us as well gone are the days when you could say birds should show by such and such a time aye and thats in short races up tae 130,mile .

  12. IMO the main cause is releasing birds in full grey cloud cover ,they have a very difficult time trying to find there bearings ,as i say only my opinion ,they need a blink of sun to start them of on their journey .The idea of recorded release + feeding and watering would be a welcome thing as well it would give fancier confidence that things were being done properly for the well fare of the birds especially in these humid close hot conditions.
