To all members of the National Flying Club
Following the clubs RPRA rule 169 meeting held on the 10th August, 2016, the Management Committee of the National Flying Club have imposed a lifetime ban on Mr. E. Kelly and the partnership F. Lloyd & E. Kelly from the National Flying Club and association in accordance with RPRA rule 70.
This follows the falsification of their race entry for Tarbes Grand National race dated 19th July 2016 to which Mr. E. Kelly admitted in telephone conversations with the President, Chairman and Secretary of the National Flying Club after the falsification was confirmed by members who marked the partnerships pigeons, stating the time at which they marked the birds, did not correspond with the time on the Bricon basketing printout.

To all members of the National Flying Club
I wish to inform you that the National Flying Club will be holding in accordance with RPRA rule 169 a committee meeting within the next 14days to discuss the case of F Lloyd & E Kelly. The committee is very saddened by the events that took place over the Tarbes weekend and that such an occurrence put a huge cloud over the whole race. Compounded by national coverage of the event this is a very sad day for the sport of pigeon racing that is enjoyed by so many. We wish to inform members that the National Flying Club is satisfied that no other members of the organisation are involved in this occurrence. The National Flying Club will issue a further statement after the 169 meeting.
Philip Curtis, Chairman

Notice - We are advising you that due to the supplier of our handbook going in to receivership, just as the handbook was starting to be printed there will be a delay in you receiving your handbook. They have agreed to continue to print the handbook with a few days delay, however with some help from local fanciers to post it out to you, we expect you to receive the handbook by 12th/13th May. As a contingency plan we are sending out by post the race entry forms part A and B for the first 2 races together with verification forms. These will leave by 1st class post on 4th May allowing you plenty of time to have your entries posted back to our secretary to arrive no later than the 16th May. Alternatively you can enter on line. As you could well imagine this came as a complete shock to us, more especially as it came on the Friday before the bank holiday break giving us little or no time to sort something out. However due to some hard work by our treasurer we managed to get a commitment from the receivers to continue printing. On behalf of the committee I can only apologise for this delay and in the future will ensure that your handbooks reach you in ample time, as like yourselves I look forward to the postman putting it through the letterbox. Philip Curtis, Chairman.
