Weekends racing from Blenheim and ChristChurch to Auckland Federation Clubs   Leave a comment

Well it looks like I got the weather pretty well right for this weekend. I didn’t want a 4 day basket seeing it was a Wednesday boxup so I left them at home. Now they’re all happily mated up for the Timaru in less than 3 weeks and the ChristChurch National in 4 weeks followed by the Invercargill. The business end of the season for the distance fliers! Let’s hope that we get some good settled pigeon weather.

It should be a good race tomorrow from both racepoints and the liberation committee certainly have done the right thing holding the birds over. They’ll be fat by now!!

I hear Palmerston North had an Invercargill liberation today and it’ll be interesting to see if anyone down there got birds on the day. It’s about 540 miles or so depending on where you live so similar to Timaru to my place. Hope someone from down there let’s us know how they got on.

Might update this in the next few days for those interested.
