Last Sunday we raced from Mullengudery in the Albion Classic 255km race.
The birds were auctioned off on Saturday night.
For most of the birds it is the first time they have been to the pub, but of course, there was no drinking before the big race.
It was a different story for flyers Shannon and Andy who, by the end of the night were about as useful as a parachute in a submarine.
The birds were released at 10am Sunday with the winning bird being promised not to end up in the oven.
Ian’s blue checker arrived at 2.29pm with a velocity of 932.19. It was brought by Obey, Whale and Doo.
They won’t have the money they won for long once their wives find out. Andy was second.
He only brought back half the bird as he couldn’t outbid Shannon, so they went halves. They both must have women’s intuition.
They celebrated by spending it all the night before.
Lucky Andy left his pigeon clock down at the pub as Shannon kept checking it to make sure he was home on time.
Ian came third and luckily Karen gave him his allowance this week as he could affords to buy it back. Next week we race from Cobar – a 343km race.
Pigeon Fact no. 2: The pigeon can breed up to eight times a year. That’s way more than Mitch and twice as much as Ross Brenner.
