Lowestoft Ness Point Pigeon Club held its annual prize presentation night at the Kessingland WMC.

Members and friends attended to congratulate the best performance lofts of 2017.

It was good to see Andrew Daniels, the hard working secretary of the NSSRCC, and his wife Jo. and also club member Keith Latham, who has not been too well of late.

This year’s special guest to present the prizes was Melvyn Horn, the local pigeon auctioneer, who was warmly welcomed.

After a short opening speech by the club’s chairman Melvyn was asked to present the trophies.

Principal prize winners were Colin Seago who won the Inland Old Bird Average while the partnership of David Arlow and Sam King won the Young Bird Average.

Colin Seago was the winner of the Overseas Average and also won the Combined Average.

Arlow and King had a brilliant season, gaining nine first prizes flying in this very competitive club.

Several other members shared the remaining trophies.

Another very successful season was had by members using the Ness Point HQ marking station for the races held by the British International Championship Club and some notable section performances were put up.

Thanks wer given to Colin Seago and the team for the efficient marking of the birds and to Arlow and Seago for transporting the pigeons to Diss for the BICC races.

Bouquets were presented to secretary, Sheila Quantrill, assistant Secretary, Sue Dyer and president Mollie Chamberlain in recognition of all their hard work during the season. Gifts were presented to Melvyn Horn and Sheila.

With the formalities over the members enjoyed the buffet which was prepared by Sue, Sheila and Mollie.

Games of bingo and a raffle raised £113 for the club funds. This all resulted in an enjoyable evening, especially for Sam King who won the full house.

All good things must come to an end and soon it was time for everyone to say their goodbyes, with members already looking forward to next year’s presentation and a successful racing season.
