It’s nearly that time of the year again. For new members this is a competition run throughout the season, split into old birds and young birds. We have members putting their loft forward each week, it can be any member racing that weekend. They give the race point and distance. Then the members have to guess the time of that members first arrival on the clock. The guesses have to be in by the Friday evening. Once started it will all become clear. Points are given for the closest guess. Ie if 12 members guess the time the closest gets 12 points going down to 1 for the furthest out. The winner is the one with the most points at the end of the old bird season and the same with the young birds. Some weeks we do have more than one race. It is a great fun competition.
Could members please let us know if they would like to take part in this competition.
And of course anyone who would like to put their loft up for their first week please let me know when they start and we will then decide when to start the competition.

Along with myself, Trev would like to put his name down. If members are wondering why he hasn’t been on for a few days he is having a holiday in the New Forrest and can’t get a decent signal to be able to get on. He will be back on Friday.

Been busy lately and not been on much but will have to make time, also to put our races up for guessing. We start on the 13 with the Berks fed but will usually use the BB&O fed for the competition. When do you want to start.

Thanks Steve, we will start when members start racing. I think you will be one of the earliest on the 13th.
I think the UNC could be starting this coming weekend but will start when members are ready.
I don’t start myself until the 27th.
