Up North Combine still hoping to go ahead on the 17th April. The Avian flu has went from medium to low risk so heres hoping it goes to zero risk soon.

 

Yip..... RPRA meeting DEFRA 9th of April hopefully good news comes from that...which would allow Scottish feds to race 26th onwards so guessing 1st of May....and hopefully the EU situation is sorted for the channel enthusiasts by the time our programme gets there...issue for some of the south boys they ain't gonny get the distance on the pigeons before they are allowed in France for the big internationals etc

BICC voting today regarding north route

 

I think a PLAN B from the Scottish feds is in order. Do we want to go down the east and risk clashing with the north road feds? Do we race on different days if we decide to go down the east? Do we go down the west? Do we start off east and then gradually go west to tie in with the Guernsey line of flight? Its always better to have a plan in place , regardless if its used or not. OMHO

Surely the SNFC will have a planB Derek? After all, disruption was always going to be an issue , either Brexit or Covid.

As much as the BICC committee wanted to be positive and upbeat in confirming our wish to race from France with the existing and published program, it is obvious with hindsight that we were perhaps a little premature, as the RPRA are having increasing and ongoing difficulties in establishing that any pigeon transporters will be allowed to enter France. It is still our basic wish to race from France and join the Internationals, but seemingly this aspiration is being thwarted and may still take a considerable time to resolve.

 

Consequently the BICC have compiled an alternative program commencing 15th, May and racing from the North. Thus please see below the North Road Program but would again stress that if the Channel opens up, or there is any way of competing in the Internationals, this alternative program would be immediately aborted.

 

15th, May Ingleton (4163) North Yorkshire

 

29th, May Berwick Upon Tweed (4008) Northumberland

 

12th, June Fraserburgh (4036) Grampian Joint liberation with NRCC (Already agreed in principle with the NRCC who are more than pleased to race alongside the BICC)

 

26th, June Thurso (4115) Highlands

 

10th, July Berwick (4008)

 

23rd, July – Friday – Lerwick (4057) Shetland.

 

24th, July Otterburn (4167) Northumberland.

 

Please be aware that the routes and collection times will potentially alter, and probably three lorries will be involved as the majority of marking stations will now be collected, and possibly (TBC) the more northerly ones may be collected on a Friday morning en route north.

 

It is essential that nearer the race dates members check with their marking stations as to whether any marking times have been revised

 

This statement has been agreed by every member of the BICC committee

 

3rd, April 2021
