Old bird race programme

Dear members

Over this last weekend we have been in discussion with a second driver to try and arrange some channel races on your behalf. Unfortunately, it eventually transpired that his HGV licence had expired and, due to age, required him to undertake a medical before the licence could be renewed. Due to the time it would take to arrange all this, he felt it was not practical to proceed.

We have now spent a great deal of time and effort on behalf of our members trying to arrange an alternative driver to take our birds across the channel and are equally frustrated, as I am sure you all will be, that it has all come to nothing. With rumours and speculation rife on a weekly basis we feel we have now come to the point where a line needs to be drawn under the matter. As such, the Solent Fed will now follow an inland old bird programme to its conclusion, with the inclusion of the Bordeaux as arranged with the BBC/CSC. I have now listed the Solent fed old bird race programme for the remainder of the old bird season. The young bird programme will go ahead as planned, assuming we can go to Guernsey in August.
