Last Saturday we raced from Tottenham.
The birds were released at11:30 am.
Andy and Ringo were on fire winning their first race of the season.
Andy’s duck in the camp was on fire too cause no one would eat it.
This is the first time Andy’s got a place since coming second to his son in the last year’s 4km fun run.
It’s only Ringo’s Fourth race but then again he’s always been lucky with the birds.
It beats coming 8 out of 8 boys.
The blue checker hen clocked in at 2:07 with a velocity of 1258.62 which mean’s Andy it flew 1258.62 meter’s per minute.
It’s been a while since he won one.
Ian came second with a blue checker cock clocking in at 2:09, Velocity 1247.29.
Ian was very happy until Karen came home with her shopping bill.
Lucky Ian’s winning bird won the five and two dollar pools.
Rose Brenner won so far this year has been the bird winning the first three races, becomes the flower girl this week, coming third.
Lucky he decided to wear stockings with his outfit as it would take for ever to shave those legs.
Ross clocked his bird in at 2:10.
His blue checker cock flew a velocity of 1238.00.
Marty came fourth but reckons he could have done better if he had seen his bird land on the roof.
No, he doesn’t need to go and get glasses he already owns a pair, he just needs to keep his head out of the beer fridge on race day.
Barry came fifth which was still better placed than that horse he backed on Saturday, he only lost two pineapples.
John came sixth, with peter coming seventh.
Peter’s not flying next week.
No his birds don’t need a rest but his liver does.
I’m not one for conspiracy theories but Karen won the picked times.
She’s only in charge of it on Friday night’s, collects the money, writes the times in the book then takes the pigeons out on Saturday and lets them go.
Why doesn’t she win more often?
Next week we race from Nyngan a 274 km race.
Pigeon fact NO 17: Birds don’t just fly in circles when they’re training, they can also fly into trees and power lines.
