NRCC Dunbar

Written by George Wheatman on .

What a great weekend it was for the fair city of Norwich, and especially for one of pigeon racing’s favourite dynasties, the partnership of Mr and Mrs O King and Sons.

They won the North Road Championship Club’s first classic of the season, the Belgica Deweerd Dunbar race, while their favourite football team, Norwich City, clinched the 99th local derby against old rivals Ipswich Town to take a step nearer to a possible return to the Premier League.

Massive entry for first race

Written by Alen Gibb on .

Our season got underway on 18th April from Lyndhurst. We attracted a massive birdage of 5513 birds entered from 25 clubs and 289 members. This was an increase of around 1300 birds over the first race in 2014 and did cause a few problems when picking up from the clubs. However with very much appreciated help from the Midsomer Norton and Carlingcott members all crates were safely accommodated on the two transporters. I must give a special thank you to Lionel Vining of the Carlingcott club who used his own vehicle to collect the Farrington Gurney birds because their transporter was completely full before getting to the club.
