  1. Central 5 Clubs, North West 7 Clubs, Almond Valley 6 Clubs, Midlothian 3 Clubs. Total 21 Clubs going separately just now.


    Pentland 14 Clubs, East of Scotland 3 Clubs, Scottish Borders 4 Clubs. Total 21 Clubs going together just now.


    There is your comparison and argument for or against. This is taken from 2020 figures. 2021 figures may be worse since we lose around 5% of lofts every year.


    The future is clear with the slow reduction of Members leading to the failure of Clubs giving the "knock on" effect of the failure of Federations. One way of combating this is for Federations to work together by forming amalgamations or combines. It won't stop the reductions, but it may slow them down and it should give better racing to all involved. :)

    🤣🤣federations to work together, have yous not just destroyed the fed yous runs ?
  2. Elite Sports not for us commoners lol

    We can only stop ourselves as let's face 99 % of folk don't even know what we do for a sport, mind my labourer asking me one Friday what I was for doing at the weekend, I told him I race pigeons and he actually thought I ran along side them lol

  3. expletive remove we've had Cheltenham races ,horses transported all over and we're worried about going to a couple of short races lol ,I'd just carry on regardless let's face it whats the chances of the transporters getting pulled ,unless one of our own stick us in which I wouldn't bet against

  4. We purchase vaccine for the whole club, and have a few volunteers who vaccinate birds - including myself, I have vaccinated about 400 birds over the last two seasons - but the club I fly in purchases around 1500 doses per year, this next season we have another 6 new members (4 are from a club that has folded) and 2 new starters. We have several members (ourselves included) who vaccinate stock as well as racers - buying for the whole club and arranging the vaccinations minimises wastage.

    Thats the way it should be done imo, far too many not vaccinating and telling porkies

  5. Ricky the cheating part is cheating the guys out the money that should have won , as I’ve already posted we’ve all done it but u put your hands up and say sorry guys my mistake .


    Anyway hope your well pal and as busy as me

    aye mate busy busy, like I say I'd have paid it back but its no the wee doos fault ,atb

  6. Hi Ricky just seen this I hope and I really mean this but I do hope you don’t go through what we’ve went and going through at moment , now I’ve not said a word about this all year and it’s been going on now for months but I waited on the verdict from Cumbria about a members behaviour , once that was decided I’m sorry but I can’t sit back and let this lot get away with what they are doing to my club basically in response to putting the member out the club and asking that he stand down as president what’s wrong with asking that if your not happy ?

    Stuart I agree I would never try and put anyone out the game ,I don't know the in and outs mate I just enjoy my birds and to be honest I'd be gutted if I thought guys we're trying to put me out the sport ,hope it all pans out mate as its hard enough atb

  7. Just wondered as i have disqualified a bird before when the SHU told me the ring had never been registered to anyone.

    The person the pigeon belonged to then appealed to the SHU who told me to give the pigeon it's Fed position as it was an admin mistake.

    Wullie thats how I'd have played it out ,I sure if said fancier knew it wasn't transferred he wouldn't have timed it let alone pool it knowing full well Del would be checking it out ,I'd have kept it quiet as its not the birds fault it done its job its owner not so much ,now the race no longer exists which is a shame as it generated some banter on here and given a few more yrs im sure it would've grown ,lets face it it was only a bit of fun over the winter months, as for cheating its hardly cheating the bird flew the race fair and square, I know its the rules they must be transferred but mistakes happen, the games hanging on by a thread lads we need to stick together more than ever now ðŸ‘

  8. Yeah same Ricky big comedian and really likeable guy, Did you see the sparring video of him an Usyk he walked on to a left hook. He said he just doesn't want punched in the head anymore which I suppose is understandable lol

    Aye seen it, he never recovered from the price fight ,wish him aw the best
