Weathers been fine in West lothian. 1 shower earlier. But thats been it. Visibility has been great all day.

 

It's time the birds were at race points on a Friday night Saturday morning again.

Race controllers have few tools to work with... Weather forecast is number one and to send young pigeons to a race point on the basis of a small window of weather or half chance of a liberation is nonsensical IMO... There's always next week.

Same guys that want doos at lib points regardless of conditions are the same ones to shout the odds when we get slaughtered... Not a dig at yourself or any one individual just an opinion on how the fancy is going unfortunately.

Birds come first.

Well been raining on and off here all day in Kilsyth from about 9:30 this morning. It’s ok mate saying aye but we would have got a race early in the morning but it every fed went up early then everyone be on saying clashing!! I think cancelling was a good call. Try again next week. There only babies for a year

Another day wasted and now here they want another otterburn added and take out a longer race may as well just have all Otterburn races the way the pentland fed are going

 

Morning mate their not wanting to take out a longer race just have the same race programme that was decided but it would run 1 week longer and we’d have the Fed open same day as SNFC YBN

 

My club have voted for race programme to stay the same meaning 1 more Otterburn left and into Catterick

Appreciate your reply without an argument. Not often that happens these days.

 

If convoyers communicated and the past was left there we could all help each other with feds flying the same direction going together. Example central nw av and the Edinburgh feds. Everyone of them are in touching distance of each other.

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. :)

100% agree we should all be 1 combine or amalgamation. You can still have your fed and club prizes too. Will cut costs and improve racing. Unfortunately my aunties uncles next door neighbours sister friends brother who died in 1804 raced in that fed so we can't go with them because his great great great great grandads brother didn't like him.
