Pigeon Man makes local news !!


I don't know how long this will stay up on the York Sunday News web site, but a man responded to one of our ads in a local paper, and he is also a news reporter. One thing led to another, well to make a long story short, my loft manager Lewis Burns was a subject of a newspaper story and a video...both can be seen here. This has been part of our efforts to promote the York Racing Pigeon Club, here in York, Pa.

Warren, congratulations for such a positive news story. I enjoyed reading it and watching the video. Mr. Burns knows a lot about pigeons. I liked how he just reached out and nabbed one on the fly with no problem and you can tell he really loves them.

Thank you all !

If you like this story, you might be able to help me get another follow up by going directly to the article on the site and emailing it to a few friends !

If we stay at the top of the most viewed article and most emailed article, the newspaper will be sure to do a follow up story this fall, when our brand new 100 Mile Club conducts it's first race. We may be one of the very first AU club's in the country to develope two classes of membership, the regular one for us old time professionals, and our new "100 Mile Club" for all of our newbies !!

Good idea, Warren! I'm sure the newspaper will soon be wondering where all the "bird brains" are coming from that are posting about the article

Congradulations you guys!
It's always nice to see something positive about pigeons in the news...especially when it's about the domestic ones. Hopefully it might attract more people into the hobby!
