The annual Horseshoe HPS Boxing Day Show was held over the Christmas period.

This year the judges were Timmy Mawhinney, Robert Turkington, Thomas McKee and Jim Braniff.

Best In Show was Nigel Arthurs winning £30. Best Opposite Sex was K & D Hagans winning £20. The husband/wife team of Kate & Danny Hagans won three classes with the remaining classes won by Nigel Arthurs, Sam McGarel & Sons & Hugh Weir.

The Horseshoe club would like to thank the judges plus the competitors who gave up their time on Boxing Day to support the event. It was greatly appreciated. The club would also like to thank all those who donated prizes etc to the event, not forgetting Anisan Pigeon Products, Gem Corn (Mr & Mrs Robert Kirkwood), H Beattie & Son, Frazers Feeds. To all the sponsors, again many thanks for your support.

I have included a few pics from the event in this weeks notes. Congratulations to all the major winners and prizewinners.
