people say the blackpool show isn't as good as it used to be, and maybe it isn't.....but i enjoyed the few hours i spent there looking at all the stalls and pigeons for sale etc, i would have liked to spend longer there but only went for the Saturday afternoon...

A Fool and his money are easily parted, whether at Blackpool or anywhere else.

I have dealt direct with J Halstead for the past 2 yrs Starting at Blackpool and now includes numerous visits down to his lofts.

Going forward in my pursuit of long distance success, i am confident that both the pigeons i am bringing in and more importantly the friendship i have established with the above fancier will help me in the future.

This all started at Blackpool.Very Happy

I'm there friday afternoon till Sunday morning - only thing I'll be spending decent money on is pigging out on a chinese banquet on friday night!
I have bought good pigeons in the past off stallholders including pair of janssens paired together bred 1st and 2nd fed highest velocity over 8000 birds in their very first nest, and a latebred busschaert cock paired to my own stuff that bred 1st Futurity winning £1000. On the other hand I bought a Brasspenning cock at auction, most I ever paid for a pigeon, and he bred zero when paired to proven hens.
All part of the fun........

It certainly is, all part of the fun Colin.

Just goes to show that good pigeons can come from anywhere and also that although it is generally expensive to get close to the champion etc, there are no guarantees AT ALL.

Happy new year pal.

I only pay attention to the long distance auctions, namely C Gordons, but your absolutely right with what your saying.

Lot 50/51 on page 39 a cracking half brother/sister mating on paper.
No sign of either being in the basket even though both 2012 rung.

Your not telling me he aint bred from them so i suppose it paints its own picture.

Still well worth a try in the stock loft for any distance fancier and i will be curious to see what type of money they go for.

Like yourself, this year it will be just food and drink drunken for me this year lol.
