Homing: venue changed

CARNOUSTIE and district Racing Pigeon Club had to change their plans at the weekend. The scheduled race from Ripon on Saturday was called-off due to heavy rain in the Yorkshire area and the birds were brought back north to Witton Castle, County Durham, from where they were liberated on Sunday morning.

Two members sent 17 birds.

Leading velocities: 1, Les McKay, 1079.708; 2, Ken Gourlay, 1072.044; 3, Les McKay, 1014.385.
