sounds like a cop out. Most of us are in here because we want to beat you. You in the race is more of a motivator. If we beat your wife, then you have a excuse that the birds were hers.

Good one then!

@ flapdoodle, and everybody in the race,
On second thought:
If I'm in and if the breeder (one of Tom's combine members) (that's all a bit iffy, I know), so if your combine member is willing, the birds I sponsor can go to the "Help a beginner Program" or to the person who ends up at the bottom of the 2011 PT race results, provided the bird(s) do well (that's another if). This could encourage some fanciers to join even if they're not too sure how their own birds will do; at least they stand to improve a bit by getting one or two better pigeons?
what do you guys think ?

As I was screaming into the phone, and peeing my pants, she laughed and told me it was a joke. That she really did know the difference between a Coopers Hawk and a red pigeon, which she says is really brown.

I'm thinking just like at my local club, I got to let some others win once in awhile....just so everyone does not just up and quit !
I like your wife!!!! I'll pay her twenty so she can defend her rights. Also when did you start speaking for your wife? Does she know? I think you may be in the doghouse if she finds out. Tell her to enter her hawk, our birds will fly faster.

You know you got to play, so just admit it.

Tony

One win could just be luck, hillfamilyloft put some fine birds at auction I'll bet not his very best. Airbaby came in 3 rd and beat you on the 300 you like to do things for $ I have $100 that says you can't do it two times in a row. You win I will send you the money or to a charity of your choise. And if you loose some one else get to say they beat you, and you pay nothing.

I think that's a good idea
I was wondering what people in other countries were going to do about "their" birds after the races. Obviously most cannot afford importing (not to mention the stress from it). I was thinking either they could be given/donated to certain people like you suggested, or maybe auctioned off or something.

Hey Warren.

I know that it is sometimes hard to get a woman on camera (because it takes them about two hours to get "prettied up"), but when are you going to post a video of the two winners?

Also, have you thought about auctioning off your winner here on PT, or maybe even putting it up for sale on your web site. "The Pigeon Talk Classic Winner", should be worth something. Especially with the last name "Smith".

You could donate the proceeds to a charity, or to the next winner of the "P_T Classic".

Since you're retired and all, from this event.

I was thinking her Hawk was in the race, that is why there was so many MIA. I am just happy to see mine was able to out fly her second best>Kevin

I personally am not for the auctions, not in this sort of friendly race, I don't think we're in it for the money? but let the majority decide.
