PIGEON RACING

Bundaberg Homing Pigeon Club

The club held its seventh sprint race from Ambrose, a nominal flying distance of 190km in faultless racing conditions. A blistering pace was set by the front runners endorsing the Club's clever decision to again race the North route, like last year.

Desired velocities and exceptional returns will certainly secure the numbers to contest the distance races when it becomes more demanding, and all indications show a duplication of the very successful 2016 series. No wonder the fliers are "frothing” with the onset of the prestigious middle-distance races.

This race, proudly sponsored by Kay's Real Estate of Burnett Heads, restarted round two of the ever popular pairs elimination "It's A Knockout” and featured the pick five trap one Ladies race.

For Joe Schembri he must be wondering what to do.

On six occasions, his clocked entry has been placed second, as Dave Burgess won with his pigeon by seven seconds. Keep trying Joe!

Good to see the short marker John Smith of Agnes Waters in the top three as 19 seconds separated the top trio. In the juniors Joel Hobson had a decisive win, it appears as though the opposition birds linked with Gin Gin entries and covered too much ground.

Results:

1st Dave Burgess velocity 1360.686m/m

2nd Joe Schembri 1359.452m/m

3rd John Smith 1355.306m/m

4th Derek Newman 1310.933m/m

5th Rick Valks 1307.884m/m

6th Cactus Garden 1304.239m/m

Congratulations to all the place getters and a big thumbs up to our drivers for their unselfish club spirit. 445 birds represented 23 fliers were loaded onto the transporter. Load em lock em then enjoy "diners delight.”

The club wound up it's sprint series with a tough race from Ambrose, a nominal flying distance of 190km.

The race was proudly sponsored by Top Job Earthmoving.

John Smith of Agnes Waters took full advantage of his short-marked loft location forcing the opposition to grind out the remaining 80km into an ever increasing south-south easterly wind.

With credit, John has been knocking on the door with three previous placings in the top six and appears set for a satisfactory competitive season. In the Ladies Race, the top 3 were placed from the lofts of John Smith, Joe Schembri, and Rick Valks. Considering their loft location, the RJS syndicate fared well to secure fifth place. In the Juniors, Trent Burchard made amends for last week's disappointment by securing a nine minute win.

Results

1st John Smith velocity of 1061.565m/m

2nd Dave Burgess 1049.167m/m

3rd Steve Hearn 1039.991m/m

4th Joe Schembri 1031.844m/m

5th RJS Syn 1020.229m/m

6th Cactus Garden 1006.269m/m

Congratulations to all the place getters. 24 lofts loaded 501 birds to contest Ambrose. Basketing for Yamba 2 is Friday night at 5pm. Load em lock em then Greg's Kitchen Rules. See Ya There!

Bundaberg Racing Pigeon Club

Last week's race results from first Port Alma was from a nominal distance of approximately 200km overall, flown on 24/06/17 and liberated at 8am.

BRPC Inc. results: 1st D & K Hamilton velocity 1207.657 m/m; 2nd Jean Starr 1194.279 m/m; 3rd T. Starr 1192.279 m/m; 4th N. Dickinson 1184.551 and 5th Sonico Lofts 1183.988.

The winning pigeon was BRPC 14 Blue Bar Pied 396 Hen and flew the journey in two hours, 52 minutes and six seconds and now holds the "new race record” for Port Alma.

Duncan & Kym have announced their presence with authority this week in peeling over three minutes off the previous race record for Bundaberg, on what could only be described as just an ordinary day for pigeon racing.

Additionally, their favourite pigeon 4660 was again as consistent as her previous week's effort (being only a second from the clock bird) in winning the "it's in the bag” pool bird competition, collecting a bag of pigeon corn.

The Hamilton's record winning Blue Bar Hen 396 was one minute 59 seconds ahead of second place, two minutes and 11 seconds ahead of third place and three minutes and 22 seconds of fourth & fifth placegetters.

MRPC. results: 1st Jim Mullett velocity 1078.586 m/m; 2nd Mark Hofer 1012.801 m/m. The winning pigeon was GGPC 15 Blue Bar 1150 Cock and flew the journey in two hours, 46 minutes and four seconds.

A well deserved brag goes to Jim this week as he convincingly won by 10 minutes and 49 seconds over second place.

Alistair and young Henry have had this week off as the raptors have been giving their pigeons curry of late. Good luck chaps.

There were seven seniors competing with a total of 143 racing pigeons, returning excellent returns once again. Congratulations to all the place getters from both Clubs. Racing pigeons is a wonderful sport.
