Further to my report on the million dollar winning pigeon which won R2.37 million, I have now heard that the parents of that pigeon have been sold to an American fancier for 95 00 US dollars which is approximately R1.15 million.The bird which won the race was ahead by 18 minutes over a distance of 521 kms from a field of 1576.Owner of the bird is deceased so the birds will be auctioned off in Alberton on 26 May.There is already a bid of nearly a million rand from an American buyer. On Saturday Greytown racing Pigeon club held is annual general meeting. New member Dave Lotter was welcomed ;”Old Grizzle is chairman again and secretary/treasurer Chris Uys

We have decided to get the public more involved and are planning a race in which there will be prizes for the public.

Somehow there seems to be a greater feeling of interest this year. The last two years we were plagued by deaths, illness and general lack of interest. So 2018 , here we come – so hold onto your hats the Greytown boys are back.

Or more information please phone me, Trevor Tatahm on 084 829 9799.
