PostSubject: long distance racing   Fri Oct 28, 2016 8:07 am

long distance racing , for me to do this type of racing I have to be in the midland national , as this is the channel programme my club does , I would like to join the national flying club again but , I would have to travel at least 200 miles round trip to basket station , the B.I.C.C. would be the same sort of distance , so I have been looking at all my options , if I join one or both of these clubs I will have the extra cost of subs , diesel and time away from home approx , 6 hours every time I go with birds , not to mention 60 mile round trip to clock station , I love my distance racing but you have to draw the line somewhere , so I look like sending an army with the midland national , because the amount of cost involved in the other two nationals will pay for the birds to go in the midland national , if you get my drift . p.s. I am still thinking on this ? cheers

I would go with whatever is the easiest. Its costs enough nowadays and you don't want to sicken yourself especially if you don't time in now and again.which would make it even more fustrating

ts not the timing in that bothers me as I useualy get them home , its the fact that I have such a large team to work with , and I don't want to have to destroy birds for the sake of it , I would rather try them across the channel and find out that way ? cheers
