The President, Officials and committee of the Irish National Flying Club acknowledges the challenges that COVID-19 presents for everyone and we hope that those in our racing pigeon community are staying safe and well and are supporting each other through these uncertain times.
The task of scheduling a potential 2020 racing season with so many unknowns will be difficult until we have further certainty. Until that time, it is unclear when racing activity may resume and what potential restrictions may be in place regarding social distancing measures.
However, when racing does resume the INFC wish to make it clear that the safety of members, race marking officials, clock station officials, convoyers, drivers and volunteers must be paramount in all decision making. The INFC is also clear that any government guidelines must be followed in full.
