In a months time the UK will see the first Day of Champions’ in the UK. Presentation dinners are fast becoming a thing of the past so the NRCC have taken it up on themselves to celebrate their 2015 winners in a different way and in doing so invite all of the fancy to come and join them at the ‘NRCC Day of Champions’ that will take place on Saturday 5th December at the Springfields Exhibition Centre
The venue is located on the Springfields Shoping outlet at Spalding in Lincolnshire. Springfields comprises of not only a purpose built exhibition hall but over 55 outlet stores with 25 acres of leisure attractions, so ladies while the fellas enjoy the pigeons you may wish to enjoy browsing the many top brand outlets including M&S, Gap Outlet, and Radley plus many more. Some thing to eat at lunch time with the girls, no problem you can choose from a range of cafes and restaurants.
The complex also has a Travelodge onsite should you choose to travel down on the Friday.
In total we will have some twenty odd trade stands with market leaders such as Body & Ridewood, PJ Lofts, Osmonds, Unikon, Bamfords, Respro San Dry, Peter Bennett Photographer, Retford Poultry, Ray Knight Video, TPS Software, Belgica, Racing Pigeon, PJ Mills Clocks and many more including various breeding studs.
Two auctions will take place one with pigeon donated by members of the NRCC and following this will be a sale for a ‘2016 youngster’ More details of the sale will be published in the BHW, RP and on the NRCC web site. at www.nrcc.co.uk
All of our 2015 section and Open winners have been invited to bring along their winners and previous Kings Cup winners will be on display, now where are you ever going to see so many Open Class winners in one room, along with of course the prestigious King George V Cup.
If you are interested in booking a trade stand at the event please contact the NRCC secretary on 01205 871901 or 07739 571166. the venue has excellent facilities and allows vehicle access into the hall to build up your stand.
Some of the calls I have ben fielding for the event have been from fanciers asking is the event for NRCC members only, the answer is ‘no it is for all pigeon fanciers’ so feel free to come along and join in this great clubs ‘Day of Champions’
