G.W. & P Macaloney - Fed. champions again in 2012

In the one of the most difficult and testing seasons on record, this partnership have just completed another successful year by winning 14 federation trophies including all averages and finishing federation champions for the 13th time in the 28 years since joining the Lanarkshire Fed, an unbelievable strike rate of nearly 50% in the most competitive federation in Scotland.

The Lanarkshire Federation is so competitive that only 1 other loft has finished Fed Champions 3 times and only a handful of lofts have ever finished Fed Champions twice in the Federation’s history. We have won Federation trophies in all 28 seasons since joining the Lanarkshire Fed and they have finished Federation Champions in the 80’s, 90’s, 00’s and now in 2011 and 2012 a period spanning 4 decades.

G.W. & P MACALONEY  consider their  record of consistency the greatest achievement they have ever attained in the sport, even greater than any individual or group of performances as everyone knows that it is extremely difficult to reach the top in your respective area but 10 times more difficult to remain at or near the top for 30 consecutive years.  Over this period there have been 8 to 10 class lofts that have achieved their goal of being Federation Champions but they have all found it nearly impossible to maintain that challenge year on year. 

It is also that their birds have performed outstanding at all distances and at all levels of competiton, for example:

1st Open             S.N.F.C.  Sartilly             508 miles             813KM
1st W.Sect           S.N.F.C.  Nantes               610 miles             976KM
1st W.Sect           S.N.F.C.  Sartilly             508 miles             813KM
1st W.Sect           S.N.F.C.  Appeldore            394 miles             630KM
2nd W.Sect           S.N.F.C.  Rennes               545 miles             872KM
3rd W.Sect           S.N.F.C.  Rennes               545 miles             872KM

S.N.F.C. Gold Award with Janefield Paul (5 times Rennes)
S.N.F.C. Gold Award with Janefield Geordie (4 times Rennes, 1 times Nantes)
1st Open Scottish Central Combine Averanches  506 miles / 810K
(The furthest lying west loft ever to win the S.C.C. at over 500 miles and into a west wind)
1st Open Lanarkshire Fed Falaise 514 miles/ 825K (when only 12 day birds were recorded)
(How many lofts in the west of Scotland have won 3 times 1st Open at over 500 miles?)

In 1998 they decided to concentrate on federation racing as they could compete against up to 12,000 birds on a weekly basis and with 17 of the 18 race program flying at a distance of under 400 miles they  therefore set themselves a target of trying to put in place the best middle distance team of birds possible, resulting in the following achievements:


The Amal Cock

Over 100 X 1st Lanarkshire Fed or Lanarkshire Open duplication races with up to 10,592 birds competing (over 75 X 1st since 1998).

1st Open Strathclyde Amalgamation Huntingdon 290 miles / 465K.

G.W. & P MACALONEY   have topped the Fed from every distance, 64 miles/ 104K to 514 miles / 825KM with the exception of our jinx race Maidstone 368 miles/ 590K, but again we have a fantastic record at this race point with 2nd, 3rd, 3rd, 5th, 5th, 6th, 8th, 9th, 9th, 10th opens etc. and setting individual records like

1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11 and 12th Fed  9738 old birds.

1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th Fed 8593 young birds.

Competing at national level over the last 3 seasons we have entered 6 nationals featuring well up in the section in 5 of them and winning 37th Open Bovington, 51st Open Ypres and 51st Open Ypres all with our middle distance family.

The Federation consists of 3 sections East, West and Centre and we fly in the centre section with full clubs North, South, East and West of our own loft location.

Over the last 4 seasons alone, without flying for any club prizes we have won the following:

2009   8 X 1st L.S.C.     10 X 1st Centre Sect.   8 X 1st Open Federation   Total 26 X 1st
2010   8 X 1st L.S.C.      9 X 1st Centre Sect.   7 x 1st Open Federation   Total 24 X 1st
2011   9 X 1st L.S.C.     10 X 1st Centre Sect.   8 X 1st Open Federation   Total 27 X 1st
2012   8 X 1st L.S.C.      8 X 1st Centre Sect.   5 X 1st Open Federation   Total 21 X 1st

In the last 4 seasons they have entered 2,461 birds in 70 races, therefore averaging only 35 birds per race.

 

G.W. & P MACALONEY remain competitive year on year due to the adopted policy of never standing still, realising that there is always room for improvement.  They now only bring in birds direct from world class breeding pairs or birds very inbred to an individual outstanding producer to ensure only the top winning genes enter our stock loft. 

By adopting the above policy they have maintained an extremely high level of consistency in racing terms and their record over the last few years of passing these winning genes onto others is evident in the following sample list of fanciers excelling with their bloodlines.

When it comes to breeding winners for others their birds have topped nearly every federation in Scotland and many other organisations in England, Ireland and Wales at every level over the last few seasons as the following small example will verify:

Roy Seaton’s Mari-Mac   1st Open S.N.F.C. (her sire was bred by us)
