Information for members 16th January 2021.

To all members and club secretaries.

The 2020 Irish National Flying Club season was totally written off due to the Covid -19 virus, which led to restrictions on the numbers of people gathering together. With no viable options available it was disappointing for the officials, committee and members that the six planned races had to be cancelled.

The management committee have agreed and approved that no subscriptions will be due in 2021 for those who were members in 2020.

New members are most welcome and the fee is £25.00 or € 30.00 if you belong to a club and make application through your club, for any new members who are paying individually fee is £35.00 or €42.00. Application forms are on this web site.

No Annual General Meeting can take place at present due to the restrictions in place for Covid – 19.

The annual accounts have been audited and circulated to the management committee. The accounts will not be sent out at present to members, but will be before the Annual General  Meeting  when  one is arranged at a later date.  (Any member who requires a copy of the accounts urgently please email infcpigeons@btinternet.com and we will forward them to you).

With no Annual General Meeting all officials and management committee’s will remain in place for 2021.

The 2020 proposed race programme will also remain with revised 2021 dates.                        This will once again be subject to any restrictions in place.

The management committee plan a review of the situation in mid / end of March when hopefully they will be in a position to make informed decisions on the way forward for  the 2021 season.

Please all stay safe at this very difficult time.
