NRCC Arbroath 2014
For the third successive time this season fanciers competing with the North Road Championship Club had to endure a tough race. This time it was from Arbroath, the birds being liberated to face a light head wind on Sunday after a day’s holdover.
Winners were the husband and wife partnership of Dave and Pat Evans, of Alford, Lincolnshire, on a velocity of 1146 yards per minute.
After winning the old hens’ race in 2012, they have been knocking on the door for another big NRCC performance after being runners-up in their Section Two something like five times.
