Does one want to win most of the times or just specific races for specific distances?
Does one plan for races they want to win?

I’d like to win more club races and get a bird Home on the day from Thurso 515.
I’d like to win Berwick.
Most of all I want to stay clear of young bird sickness as the last 2 young bird seasons have been wash outs.

It is really heartening to see folks trying to fulfil there ambitions! Not once in the previous posts did I see "Win money!"
When I first started in Canada, the club I joined was run by an Hungarian guy. Karl von Gardony. He won most everything. Especially at the 500 miler. My ambition was to beat him. It took 3 years. But all the birds I had had to go the distance. 12 pairs on the nest. What performed stayed. Others were lost. Only way I culled. But eventually it paid off. At that time basically Des Mathys plus crosses. Those years we had in the Fed, 2 400 milers 2 500 milers. Over 5 year, first 3 were so so. Two years after won 1 400 Fed and 2 500 Fed. About 5 birds sent to each. Cocks and hens. They scrubbed one 500 miler year after. Came up with the Canadian Barcelona. Bagotville, Quebec. 586 for me. Won the London East/Forest City club by 3 hours. In the Fed, in the top 10. Winners were 40 miles south of me and 40 miles shorter. Assume Knackered will look it up and verify. "The spy who came in from the heat". But seriously point is this. Never give up! You have a goal go for it.
My 2018 ambition with pigeons? Do more with less!

Some challenge from my perspective Mark with what little I know etc Smile Smile. Maybe Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes  a John Romney way of thinking maybe the go there, maybe Wink Wink. Threw the local birds out the door as such & then went off shore I believe. That's it Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Man thing here now Smile Smile Hang the washing  bounce  bounce & then take the missus out to lunch Smile Smile.
