NRCC Arbroath sections 2014

Written by Gearge Wheatman on .

The North Road Championship Club’s third race of the season was another tough one, from Arbroath on June 7th, and was won by Mr and Mrs Dave Evans, of Alford, whose well merited success has been highlighted in a previous article.

This report puts the spotlight on the outstanding performances of the section winners although, unfortunately, it has been delayed by the football World Cup, the Tour de France, Wimbledon, Test cricket and the Commonwealth Games, to name just a few distractions and excuses, in addition to heat and aged-induced lethargy, and a forlorn attempt to cajole my own pigeons to compete with a little respectability alongside the stars of the NRCC.

As usual, this is an article written with not a little envy . . . 



National Winner Show

Written by Administrator on .


We are always looking at improving the event and this year will see some change as we are bringing fancy pigeons back to Doncaster! Andy Lowe and his friends with their fancy pigeons have always been a supporter of both the March and November events at the Dome and back in March some twenty fancy pigeon fanciers attended a meeting at the Dome to assess the space available in order to combine a Fancy Pigeon Show with the National Winner Show. Before panic sets in I can assure you that the Show Racer classes will not be affected by the fancy pigeons and will take their usual place in the centre of the hall and will be managed by our already successful team of Colin and Ingrid Farndale, Dennis and Joyce Hull and Geof Banister, rest assured without their expert assistance the show would be nigh on impossible to run so thanks for all your hard work.


Lucien Geerts – Messelbroek

Lucien a 59 year old retired warehouse supervisor whose passions are football and pigeons, with football Lucien has coached three teams in Belgium all of them making Provincial Champions, so a man with determination to succeed and the pigeons, well nothing different here either, he has to succeed.

Just before turning off for Meslebroek you cant help but notice the domed roof of the Basiliek that dominates the skyline of Scherpeneuvel, this has been a place of pilgrimage since 1500, the Basiliek it self has stood since 1627 when it was consecrated in July of that year, even to day many Catholics make the pilgrimage here.
