As for us, we didn't race old birds, but managed to get ybs to race, ok, only 2 races eciting all the same, 1st one was Chepstow, sent 12 got 8 home, then we missed the1st Swindon due to bad weather, the 2nd Swindon we only managed to send 6, got a decent result, we were 6th club and 29 fed, only got the 1 bird in the clock,and 3 later in the day with 2 losses, after that the birds were dropping feathers so decided to call time on the season, all in all we were pleased with our only prize from 2 races, how did you think your season has gone, was it all you expected or was it a disappointment

its not been too bad for me lofty ,was 3rd in the first race then the club had a bust up so I joined another club and fed 30 miles south of me ,I had to jump the birds at least 100 miles to catch up with there programme , but they came through ok , the rest of the season they had strong head winds to contend with , and fly the last 30 miles on there own , but again they came ok , I have had a good few positions in the club and fed , I also joined the midland national , and sent to 3 races with them from france , I had good positions in section and open , I did not send to many young bird races but again left my mark in the club and fed ,so cant complain really , and I have plenty of birds left for next year . Basketball cheers

Our old birds were fine till the 4th race then went off don't no why so didn't race them till the comeback races still wasn't happy with them so we stopped them.The youngbirds were ok we raced them in another club more corridor flying we were suited with them they were always in the top 6 and had the first four in a race and they won 11,fed and amal cards so not too bad we will be racing all the bird's in this club next season.

That's only one race David you can double that with the club racing winnings

Top quality fanciers I should know raced in the same club as them and lost big time to them but the main thing was you never heard them shout about there pigeons just let the pigeons do the work and always shacked hands with the winner

our last race was last week, we didn't have a bad season, took a few cards, but hoping for a better one nest year when I will be able to fly the old bird programme with what`s left of my young bird team.
