Roscrea 28/04/19 -

Postby willie reynolds » Tue Apr 30, 2019 9:42 am

Last weekend the NIPA birds were transported to Roscrea in preference to Gowran Park which it was thought might take the birds out over Dublin Airport in the high winds forecast for Saturday. As it turned out the NIPA were the only organization to hold over on Saturday due to unfavourable conditions, Sunday was due to be better and many were predicting a Blow Home. Liberation was delayed till 12 Noon with conditions improving all the time and the birds were released in a helping southerly wind. Winners were again on time but the convoy experienced problems over the route and by clock checking at the local clubs very few had more than half their entry home. Not the result we were looking for so early in the old bird season. Our 2.00pm rule for liberations ruled out a later release.

Overall winners were Danny Coyle and son Bobby from the Coleraine Premier, a Van den Brande Mealy hen three year old raced Roundabout and bred by clubmate Anthony McDonnell a former Kings Cup winner. Bond & Diamond from the same club were runner-up followed by W & J Smyth of Ballymena & Dist and three early arrivals in Ahoghill Flying Club.

Big winners locally were W & J Smyth from Ballymena & District who recorded velocity 1531 to finish 1st MAC, 1st Sect B & 4th Open NIPA with 18,761 birds competing. The top three in Ahoghill were also well placed, Paddy McManus, Mr & Mrs Robinson and Jimmy Smyth.

Unikon ETS Systems -
The NIPA committee have issued a ruling stating that the use of 2 loft clocks for timing of birds will NOT be permitted under any circumstances by anyone racing in the NIPA. Members and clubs should also be aware of the new Race Rule 16 added a couple of years back. The make and serial number of ETS CLUB SYSTEM’S and Clock’s must be registered with the NIPA. No unregistered system will be allowed to be used for any race flown under NIPA Rules.

Would all NIPA clubs please ensure that your 1st 4 week payment is sent with the transporter this week as Fermoy is your 4th race any clubs failing to do so will NOT have their birds collected the following week. Also would all secretaries please use the correct envelopes for sending results etc. to the office as information can be lost with it arriving in the wrong type of envelope.
