That would be a lot of topics to cover. Start by reading the sticky first. Learn to take care of pigeons first. Then once your learned how to do that, then you can start racing. You need to know housing, feeding, training, medical care, etc., first. Obviously you need to get racing pigeons as well which is another big topic.

Welder,

Welcome to the best game in town! You will need to find a mentor or two that can help you, in the meantime have you checked out the American Racing Pigeon Union's website? You can find it at pigeon.org. They can be a big help in getting you connected to the racing pigeon sport! I agree with RodSD about the amount to learn but if your serious then that's all part of the fun!

Kevin,
That is perfect then. You are experienced. You are halfway there. I think you need to get a racing pigeon then. Practice training those. Then perhaps you can join a racing club. You obviously need to buy those clocking device which the club uses.Someone will probably go to your house to gps your place. Then proceed after that with training and racing. Hopefully you can find a racing mentor to guide you.
