14th December 2013 - The Scottish Homing Union Pigeon Show at Lawrie & Symington Market, Lanark
The Scottish Homing Union winter show is being held again in Lawrie & Symington Agricultural Market on the outskirts of Lanark. Itís a great venue and weíve had a fantastic response from everyone who attended in 2012. Again, it will be on the second Saturday in December which falls on the 14th this year so it will be a great pre Christmas pigeon social.
We have a good selection of stands lined up again this year, amongst them are the British Fanciers Medical Research Team who will join us again at their stand space on the balcony where members are invited to provide a small blood sample to test for pigeon lung allergy. This simple test forms the basis of the teamís massive research project which is world renowned as one of the most important and informative in the field.
K Winters will be there to provide a free pigeon testing service for anyone who would like to bring samples; Jim Hannah, photographer, can arrange to photograph your champion pigeon on the day and you can either book this with Jim in advance or speak to him on the morning of the show. Cocydene pigeon supplies will have a wide range of pigeon products, feeding and equipment for sale; Brian Lees stand will have a huge selection of pigeon embroidered clothing in both adult and child sizes as well as loft coats and jackets on his stand.
We have additional space for stands this year and we are offering this on a first come first served basis, so for any company with products they wish to promote or members with sale birds, please ring me on 01698 768939 to reserve your space. We are currently selling raffle tickets in support of the show so thank you to all of the club secretaries who have already sold their tickets and returned their stubs for the draw. The young bird season means members are at the club every weekend for racing so secretaries, please try to get these tickets to the members before the end of the season. We are extremely grateful for all the help you gave last year and we hope that having a yearly raffle will ensure the future financial success of out SHU Show in the years to come.
I have included photographs of the 2012 show; hopefully some of you will spot yourselves in the crowds.
