Ladies Night for the Mighty NIPA
With another full house at the Templeton Hotel in Templepatrick the NIPA Chairman Alan Darragh welcomed all those attending and introduced the guests who included local MLA Robin Swann and his father Brian from Kells in County Antrim. They were joined at the top table by NIPA President Robert Reid and family also RRRA Irish Region Secretary, and NIPA Vice Chairman Sammy Thompson. Also present the Secretary of The Irish National Flying Club Trevor Topping and family, and Mr & Mrs Beattie who sponsored the Fermoy 5 Bird Championship. The main sponsor for the 2016 season were Frazer Animal Feeds. Sammy Thompson said grace and following an excellent four course meal the NIPA Secretary and Assistant Fred Russell and Gregory McEvoy assisted at the big presentation. What a job they had in hand getting everything ready for the big night, invaluable work over many hours. Fred has asked that all trophies and cups be returned in early August next year to enable an assessment to be carried out of their condition, especially the older ones. Great care needs to be taken with the cleaning of the cups, no wire wool or Brasso to be used.
