FLYING ROLLERS

Judge – Robert Bennion

 

Not having been to this event for a few years, I was looking forward to judging the Flying Rollers.   Also it was an opportunity to put faces to the names of people I knew only from pigeon forums.   Congratulations to Tony Muir on winning Best Flier with a very nice ash-yellow chequered badge hen; very typy and in great show condition. Unfortunately a number of birds were badly soiled and not in show condition, which was reflected in their awards.  Thanks to those who put their birds out as without you there wouldn’t be a show.
