On behalf of the management committee President Dr P P Lynch wishes to convey his thanks to all who donated birds to the late-bred sale and to those who made donations for their very generous support of the SNFC.
He also wishes to thank officials and management committee members whose collective efforts resulted in this late-bred sale unequalled anywhere for sheer quality since it comprised birds from National and multiple National section winners together with birds from some of the most consistent lofts in National distance competition.
Unfortunately, the turnout this year was disappointing as a result of delayed liberations and hold-overs at Federation level due to inclement weather conditions. This may be something the committee will have to consider when arranging future sale dates and times.
Sincere thanks are extended to the fanciers who attended the sale and those who placed commission bids and we wish them every success with their purchases.
Special thanks to Auctioneer Andy McKee for his excellent work in handling all bids and commissions.
The sale raised a total of £3459.00 before expenses plus £85 from the raffle.
