Greytown Racing Pigeon Club

2018-07-04 06:00

NO report was published last week as we did not participate in the race from Paul Roux.

We are back this week with a report on the race from Dealesville, a distance of 473 kilometres, which was flown in a time of five hours and two minutes at a velocity of 1 564 metres per minute.

The winning pigeon belonged to the Naicker bros, who once again showed us a clean pair of heels.

They also snapped up second place, seven minutes later, and third went to RD Lofts 13 minutes later at 13.16.

While on the subject of the Naicker bros, I must mention that in the first race they took first and fifth position in the KZN Combine.

After the first three positions, the Naicker bros claimed fourth while Leon Potgieter once again rubbed the Old Grizzle’s nose in the dust, managing to obtain 11th position.

Our next race is from Paul Roux, a distance of 272 kilometres — we will be flying for our Blue Bar Cup and Red Cup.
Good flying.
