NMC Bulletin November 2009
District 5 Report from Cletus
Thompson The 5th District had 2 very good show’s this year. The first was the
5th District show in Bonham Texas on Oct‐31st. We had entry’s from Louisiana , Arizona, Oklahoma and Texas. There was 307 birds entered with Bob Gathright winning best Schie and Rex Arnold with best Gazzi . I would like to thank everyone that helped with this show. Without the help of JoAnn Taylor and Lyda Kasselman I would have been lost. They did a great job with the books for both show’s . The Central Regional show was held in Sllwater OK, on Nov‐14th . We had 390 Modenas entered . We had members from Az, Ok, KS, TX, IO, MD, Al, and NB. Max Josey had best Gazzi and Rex Arnold had best Schie . Ed Kasselman and Brad Wilcox did a great job judging these two shows for use. The compe on was some of the toughest I have seen . I would like to thank everyone that entered birds in these two show’s for all there help and support to make them a success. Now it’s me to start the breeding season and try to raise some beer Modena’s for next year. Hope to see all of you at a show
District 6 Report
From Jim Sallee This is theme of year we all look forward to when you can start to see the bo om of the lo floor for a few hours before it gets covered with feathers again. Even some of the birds are star ng to show a li le promise. We set our NMC Western Young Bird Show a li le later this year so we would all have a few birds to show. November the 7th should be a lot be er than October the 3rd would have been as that was our old date for the show. At least we will have a few that are smooth enough for a show. We will head to Fresno to show with the Calvacade of Pigeons and look forward to a nice week end. Norm Macler will judge for us
NMC and PMC members should be receiving a catalouge from the Los Angelos Pigeon Club for our NMC Regional meet on November the 19th, 20th and 21st. If you do not receive one, let me know and we will get you fixed up. Jan Heldal will be the judge for this event. This meet will be held in
conjuc on with the Pageant of Pigeons in San Bernardino. This is a great
place to show your other breeds as this show offers some of the best
in the West.
The 6th District meet will be in Camp Verde, AZ on December the 5th. I s ll do not have all of the details, but we will certainly have them by the next bulle n.
A thank you to Rick Barker for the nice ar cle on the passing of Virginia DeLong. Virginia was probably the strangest person I have ever known, but she did love those pigeons and at one me was able to produce some nice ones. Don Kerns has agreed to pass some of her birds around. Most are quite old, but there are some stock birds there, if someone wants to spend
Modena Club plans to put up
