UPDATE ON BIRDS AND RACE

The birds have been coming quite slow this year which is understandable due to some of the problems last year.  However John is doing a great job with the birds and Steve is on top of all the finances etc.  We hope many of the breeders that skipped the race this year will recognize everything is running smoothly and be back next year.    

This year we will not have the number of birds we are accustomed to having however we will have a smaller race and work very hard to do a good job.  If you haven't sent birds yet you still have time, we have extended the deadline to July 31st.  We will still be picking up birds in Yuma if we are notified birds are there to pick up.

Ship Birds To: C/O John Steinbrenner P.O. BOX 5861, Yuma, AZ. 85366  

Birds are out most every day and doing great.

RACE UPDATE

Update on the race and the house at Triple Crown Classic.  The house has been sold to John's son and his family.  They have totally remodeled the inside of the house and have let John have a room adjacent to the front room and Loft that he conducts the business for the race.  The house really has had a face lift, it's very nice.  

The race birds are doing well, no problems with health or any other problems.  John has most of the birds out and settled.  Looking forward to a great year.

PASSING OF WAYNE HERRON

One of our long time highly revered club member, Wayne Herron, passed yesterday.  He had been battling lung problems the past year or more.  Wayne was one of the "key" members of our club, held many offices, and was respected by all.  Wayne will be missed by all and will always be well thought of throughout the "pigeon community".  Wayne was well known throughout the state, attending state conventions and representing San Diego.  "A really good guy"!  Condolonces to his family and his long time girl friend, Ardis.  Service dates will be forthcoming.

Presently there are 4 quarantined counties in Southern Calif. for New Castle Disease for birds.  They are LA County, San Bernardino County, Riverside County, and Ventura County.  We wil not be accepting birds for our race from any of there 4 counties.  Even though the New Castle outbreak has basically nothing to do with racing pigeons we still have to conform to state regulations concerning this matter.  Any questions contact Steve Miner, 619-933-8188 or sminrevangruen@aol.com.
