May I introduce myself

My name is Mark Palmer. I am a fourth generation pigeon fancier, with my great grandfather having kept pigeons back in the 1890’s. I have raced in partnership with my parents since I was a small lad under the name of Mr & Mrs W. Palmer & son, with the loft having been established in 1964 and remaining in the same location since we started racing. We have achieved a great deal of success with our birds, winning up to 38x1st prizes in a single season at every level of competition.

I have served the sport in many capacities, being a President, Chairman, Secretary and committee member of a number of organisations. My parents and myself were jointly the first ever recipients of the RPRA West Midlands region special award for services to the sport. We have organised a number of large events, most notably the world famous ‘Vanrobaeys Gold Ring Classic’ and its sister event ‘The Röhnfried International Futurity’. This series of races ran for 19 years and paid out over £1,000,000 in cash plus motor cars and a Caribbean cruise.

Most of my time is now dedicated to serving the fancy in my role as the UK distributor for Bricon, ensuring that each and every customer is given a first class service so that he or she can enjoy their pigeon sport with Bricon electronic timing.
