Great Pigeon Race (Stoney Creek RFS Fundraiser)
Its on again!
THE GREAT STONEY CREEK PIGEON RACE
47 Stoney Creek Place
Saturday 17 September 2016
On Saturday 17 September Peter and Robyn Darcy will once again hold a Pigeon Race to raise money for our local fire brigade. What a great job the volunteer brigade members do for our community and everyone acknowledges the huge commitment they make of their time.
Previous years races raised $1800-$2200 for the fire brigade, and everyone who participated last year had a fantastic time.
Procedures commence at 9 AM. People may 'purchase' a pigeon to race (or several) for $25. A ticket with the pigeon leg band ID number will be given to each 'buyer'. Each 'purchased' pigeon will be placed in a basket and transported to Sutton for release.
While you wait for your pigeons to return home, you can mingle with neighbours and friends and buy a a BBQ brunch to munch. The pigeons should return home between 11 - 11:30 AM
The first three pigeons to return through the electronic gate into the home loft will be declared the winners.
BBQ brunch and drinks for sale.
$20 of each pigeon 'purchase' and all proceeds from food sales will be donated to the Stoney Creek RFS.
