I will have to disagree with that just look at the first yb race last year for example I think it was 1300 lib scotch corner late lib and so on I think the late lib with these plastic baskets is a no no if the temperature gets up your doos start to dehydrate that brings its own problems flying in Mr Percy and just look wot happens you have to consider every factor leading up to a bad race and these I consider to be some of the problems

they are aluminium crates old boy, and percy is up at first light and as soon as it kills then straight after it wont be as keen to go as full crop and kneads an hour or so to digest, we libed 6 times with young birds last season 98% returns

Question, If it's freezing cold at 7 am but the rain is coming in at 11 am do you think the controller would deem it to cold to liberate or would he let them go

depends on lib dunbar, berwick 8;30.9.00 but he has the say ,we voted him in and if any member dosent like his decisions he can put his name forward for the job the following year

Imo They should be holding them as Trying to beat weather fronts can lead to disasters yes the leaders make it home but what happens to the rest of the convoy

So why is it just the leaders that get home is it the same leaders every week do the ones that come later every get to the front in good days just something worth looking at I think wee all have to start looking in before wee look out mind the 98% thing

We still need to give the rest a chance to get home , a hawk strike on leader could cause them to hit trees and hide and if weather comes in they won't have a chance to home in good time , it's a hard game now but we need to give them the best possible chance

It’s not always the leaders that get hit it’s just your luck anybody that trains pigeons in twos or threes will know that it’s not always the first ones to get let go that gets hit it can be the last group or the second group that gets it and racing on a Saturday is just the same it’s your DONALD DUCK simple as that but what I will say is I’ve trained my pigeons and a few of my club mates pigeons for a good few years now and the guys that were getting them back hawked from the tossing were mostly pigeons that are unfit and are maybe at the *expletive removed* of the batches and maybe getting picked out they peregrines can take one from the back of the batch and the rest of the doos don’t even know it’s happened.

Most of the program is what Glasgow has flown at any one time and I have no doubt will be flown again come April

Correct Danny . Dunbar to me is 82 miles not bad for first race and by the fourth race were over 150 miles ,nothing wrong with that . If the national clubs would put back there races for 2weeks then I'm 100% that all Feds would put their racing back 2weeks .

Is the big Lanarkshire only setting up a race date and a start date to suit the national club,why are we not a independent federation, and if we can charge £75 a race basket, do we need any other bugger
