Given all but the NFC have now put out their revised North Road programs this is our possible programme for this coming season. 

North Road Program

8th May Ashbourne 138 miles CSCFC

15th May Ingleton 242 miles BICC

15th May Ilkeston 140 miles BBC

29th May Aycliffe 249 miles CSCFC

29th May Berwick 326 miles BICC

12th June Fraserburgh 458 miles BICC going with NRCC

12th June Blaydon 270 miles BBC

19th June Berwick 326 miles CSCFC

26th June Thurso 522 miles BICC

26th June Berwick 326 miles BBC

2nd July Fraserburgh 458 miles CSCFC & BBC

10th July Berwick 326 miles BICC

16th July Thurso 522 miles CSCFC & BBC

23rd July Lerwick 630 miles BICC

24th July Otterburn 273 miles BICC

As can be seen still an interesting program. Plenty of distance races to still test our birds. It will be a bit different racing North but I am actually looking forward to it. They could be flying into a head wind most weeks and we will be among the longer fliers.

Only the CSCFC have given a possible YB race and that’s from Guernsey. The trouble is with the BBC, and even more so the BICC, members are well up country and to race young birds from down here the first race would be around 150 miles with the BBC and 250 miles with the BICC. 

I’m not worried as I’m still not sure about racing the youngsters anyway. 

I just hope that if they start on the North Road they don’t switch half way through the season. 

Just got to work out where to train them from now lol.

That's right, rainbow. You cant please all the people, they can only do their best under the circumstances. 

Should be a good opportunity for Andy to test the pigeons anyway. 

Regards

Murray.

A couple of changes in race points. 

15th May Ingleton BICC now Blaydon 270 miles

29th May Aycliffe CSCFC now Darlington 242 miles

2nd July Fraserburgh CSCFC & BBC now Elgin 456 miles. 

Still very much up in the air though as to start date for racing and could possibly still change to South Road at any point.
