Pigeon notes

The Annual General Meeting of the RPRA (Irish Region) will be held in the Clarion Hotel, 75 Belfast Road, Carrickfergus on Saturday 4th February starting at 1.00pm. If any member wishes to be on the INFC Committee please attend the RPRA Annual General Meeting to be nominated. The only new club listed for membership and which has been advertised without objection are Blackwater Town Westend HPS, Secretary Maurice Weir.

Following the AGM there will be a Region Delegates meeting and then at 3.00pm a General & Appeal Committee meeting. Under Any other business we have the closing date for RPRA Awards down for discussion. Another major item is electing the RPRA Delegates and making decisions on the various resolutions set for the RPRA meeting to be held in Coventry at the end of February. Just 125 changes to be looked at this time.

The Irish Region like most of the others intend to hold a Jubilee Race, details of which are to be decided at the AGM. The Secretary Robert Reid has asked members to bring forward items for discussion regarding Race Point, prizes etc so decisions can be made. Clubs are also asked to pass on the names of members that have resigned or had a Clearance Sale in the club during 2011. Looks like another very interesting, long day.

The next big meeting will be the NIPA to be held on Saturday 18th February at 2.00pm sharp in the Protestant Hall in Glenavy. The Agenda for this will appear as soon as I have it. MAC is down for Harryville on Wednesday 14th March at 8.00pm.
