Greytown Racing Pigeon Club results

2015-08-26 06:00

ANOTHER two races were flown on Saturday, both for yearlings. The first from Bothaville, 432kms was contested by uncle and nephew.

The Naicker Bros clocked the first arrival at 13.44 with a velocity of 1068 metres per minute - they clocked number two at 13.46 and the next at 14.15 to record the only three birds home on the day.

Following a 7am liberation from Middleburg, a distance of 379kms, the first arrival to Naicker Bros was clocked at 12.52pm to attain a velocity of 1077 metres minute, followed by another arrival at 13.13 with RD Lofts clocking at 15.22 to fill the third position.

Not to be outdone MLofts clocked at 14.28 and 14.29 to fill fourth and fifth positions. RD Lofts sixth and Naicker Bro seventh, leaving a shamefaced Old Grizzle claiming the final two positions and still looking for a win.

Next week is an open race from Bandelierskop, approximately 680kms and this is probably our last race due to losses and the difficulties of fielding a full team.

How much food do you need to concentrate?

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
