I remember when I rejoined the club a few years ago, I happened to mention the use of ets, they went mental, all waving their walking sticks in the air screeching there would be no ets used in the club........they even said that if I were to buy one and use it, no one would read it off for me !!!

how things suddenly changed when the cricket club donated £5,000 for all members to have ets, .... Razz Razz Razz flower flower

My own.
Theres just not the interest,you don't see kids interested in pigeons,rabbits,chickens even budgies anymore.
Its not the cost,you can easy convert a garden shed T3 clocks vertually given away plenty free pigeons to start with to learn and have fun and responsibility
Of keeping them.
Feed,basic 4 seasons £8 a bag.
Too much for them to do now.
True FW Smile Smile Kids these days don't want to get dirty type of thing on average. Clean a pigeon loft/rabbit hutch Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes & get their designer shoes/runners & clothes dirty or even just jump in a puddle for the enjoyment factor Wink  Wink. Come on now lol! lol! lol! some thing missing I suggest these days etc "Up top" with how they think bounce bounce if ones plays that game Wink Wink by today's standards Smile Smile. cheers

Of course fieldwalker, that is very true. Likewise most clubs I would say without any hesitation.

But not too much if it would help them this week to beat them in the race by some.
Club 'Spirit' has dwindled very much. Genuine help like wise I'm sad to see.
Was a time when a newbie could have the pick of a pair of youngsters, from the nest (Ring Numbers etc.) given to them. No restrictions there then. Today too many promise youngsters, then it's wait and see to had a few problems BUT will get back to you etc.!
Or a pair of 35 day olds that 'Would fly Lerwick' as the saying goes and much more... and very many reasons why it doesn't happen! Now I will point the finger as to whom! Not the lower to middle flyers, no they give their bounty! Yes the so called 'Top Flyers'.

ive bred pigeons for quite a few fanciers, who tell me they have been promised ybs off other people, but they never fulfil their promises .......seems there are a lot who promise new starters or fanciers who are low on stock ybs, but let them down.

then on the other hand you get the fancier who cant wait to unload their crap on some un suspecting fool....

I got as much satisfaction giving fanciers pigeons that won for them as I did winning myself.

Attempted several times to get young people involved latterly but they soon lost interest

Too many alternatives that can be undertaken when and where, when our sport needs 365 days a year attention.

Just watched the horse racing, the vast majority of owners are involved for the love of their sport and are fully aware they have no chance of beating the money men.

Other than the odd occasion the same applies on an on going basis today in our sport.


An allotment grass root fancier can compete but the odds are stacked against him/her.

I have come to the opinion that the best way is to just enjoy what you do and any wins class as a bonus, come to think of it, that is what I always did.


Regards.

I think its the same with a lot of things (but not all) in the hay day everythings fine and " Im alright Jack" large steady membership big birdage you can add the BOPs as well.
Then pop the bubble bursts and panic...less members no new members birdage drops clubs fold.
As fo BOPs...i can remember Bilco saying " if you haven't got them in your area you soon will"...aye I thought were not going to be bothered by them,felt sorry for the West side who i thought might have a bit bother...Guilty of the im alright jack attitude Sad bubbles burst now tho.
