Fougeres National 21st May - Countdown

Yes the first NFC race of the season from Fougeres is only 21 days away so countdown has started. There are a few key dates which you need to put in your diary. These are:

Saturday 14th May: Deadline for posting Part A race entry forms with numbers of entry and along with Fees and your Section /Open pools. These should be sent to Sid Barkel the NFC Secretary, remember if you miss the deadline then your entries will not be accepted. You can if you prefer to enter your birds and pay by card on line. (I have used this method for last two seasons and it is simple and straight-forward once you get used to it. It saves a lot of hassle!)

Sunday 15th May: Members to text Sportsman FC secretary with their entry numbers. This will help determine what transport needs to be arranged.

Monday 16st May: Sportsman FC secretary to finalise transport arrangements.

Wednesday 18th May: Birds picked up at Sportsman, Toft Hill. T3 clocks will be set that night (8:00pm). ETS clocks go with birds to Sheffield along with your Part B entry forms. All baskets to be labelled with members full name.

Saturday 21st May: Fougeres Race Day. We will be sending out updates/prompts by group text as race day approaches.


Once again a massive thank you to Vanrobaeys who are again sponsoring all Sportsman Club races this season. Remember that the race winner will receive 2 bags of corn as well as a range of their racing products. An excellent gesture and well worth winning. If you want to see a full range of their products just pop in to Terry Knox’s warehouse at Swalwell. You will be made very welcome and there are always bargains to be had as well as the mandatory cup of coffee.

I would personally recommend you have a look at Vanrobaeys Premium Power Range” which is the first choice of many top distance lofts not only in the UK but also Germany and the Netherlands.

Any news just drop me an email.
