Calling all novice fanciers.

The Mickie B Shield is presented to a novice fancier who has attained outstanding achievement in the sport in 2008, it is presented in memory of the late forum member MickieB.

The award isn't about winning races or person with the most prize cards. We want to hear your stories, what you've had to overcome to race your pigeons, interesting and quirky tales. Some things to include in your entry would be: How long you have raced pigeons/kept pigeons, How many do you keep, Do you race on your own, or is someone in the family race too, Are you part of a partnership, What positions have you won this year, and what birdage was there in these races (as much detail about setting your birds up and getting them to perform in that race please - remember it doesn't have to be a 1st place, it doesn't have to be 10th, if you sent 10 and got them all home within 5 mins but were just off the result sheet; that's a pretty remarkable performance; let us know!), What size is your loft, Do you drive (how do you go about training your pigeons if not)... I'm sure your getting the idea now!

To enter, please write your piece (above), don't worry about the style of writing or spelling, its not a spelling competition! Please include your full name, and also the name of your club and federation.

Winners will receive; the trophy (for one year) and replica. We may even sort out some goodies for you too.

Dont forget, include the small quirky little stories of whats happened over the season, things maybe you wouldnt normally say.

Entries to [mail]forum@pigeonbasics.com[/mail] - marked 'Mickie B Trophy'.

Good luck!
Richard

P.S. For novice fanciers we mean anyone who has raced pigeons for less than 4 years or thereabouts :)

We have a panel of independent judges, each has a single vote. The entry with the most votes will be awarded the trophy.

I haven't decided or approached the panel this year, but in '06 it was a local fancier to me while at home (home home) in Hartlepool, a local fancier to me in Scotland (Scotland home), and Rose sought the other judge. This year I will get a number of judges both from the forum and away from it.

Richard had spoken to westy and gave him our address, but no trophy yet and this was a couple of weeks ago, so we'll get in touch with him again and see whats going on.
