Program description: Our pigeon journey started when one crash landed in my front yard as a teen. Soon my father had built a coop, collected a rag tag crew of breeding birds, and began training drives in preparation for racing. The sport lives on today and has a rich history in both war and peace time. This class includes live birds, learning how to read bands, how to train for racing, and how the racing clock works. Please email me with Programs in the subject line with any questions and to be added to my live booking link and visual catalog. Suitable for 2019 summer reading programs.
