Mid-Antrim Combine members hold AGM on Wednesday


The annual general meeting of Mid-Antrim Combine for this season will take place as usual in the Harryville HPS Clubrooms at 8.00pm this Wednesday 16th March 2016.

As was agreed at the AGM last season the fees would increase by £1, each loft must now pay £3.00.

This will be the opportunity to discuss the NIPA Race Programme and maybe think about arranging a training race from, for example, Navan on Saturday 9th July and then decide venue for the next two weeks Area Liberations.

Two Delegates should attend from each member club to conduct the business.

Ballymena & District HPS members, those with ETS should fill Race Sheets in ASAP and let us know by text message when ready. We will then set a night for the clock to be updated and rings allocated.

A bit of time to go before racing but we are starting early to have the ETS Clocks set up and ready to go.

The T3 Clocks will be set up towards the end of March, members will be informed as we go along.

This week 17th March is the deadline for the INFC Single Bird Challenge, it’s a free entry, don’t miss out!

Due to a change in circumstances Tom McAlonan will not be training birds this year, Homer will be collecting on the usual route.

The opening race of the old bird season will be Tullamore on 9th April, weather permitting.

A Spring Fayre is being held on Saturday 19th March 2016 with the event opening at 9am and closing 4.30 pm (approx) . Last season’s event was a tremendous success for all who had youngsters to sell with most sold out.

At this event fanciers can purchase their last minute requirements prior to the racing season and avail themselves of youngsters for sale from various stalls.

The venue for the event is the Six Mile Leisure Centre in Ballyclare.

The response to the Fayre has been phenomenal with a number of stalls already confirmed for what will be greta family day out.
