New Video on 2015 Grand National Show

The LAPC did an amazing job hosting the latest US Grand National show and their efforts continue. This latest video featuring great pictures of many of the 300 breed champions along with a mini documentary of the entire event are available on Youtube and as a set for purchase on DVD. Personally speaking this show and the week that followed - form the greatest single experience I've ever had as a pigeon fancier. It really opened my eyes to the endless possibilities our hobby presents. We are globally connected by our common interest and appreciation for pigeons and the world is our playground. Efforts such as these videos are great tools fanciers anywhere can use to help promote and expose the hobby to new people. I hope you enjoy the videos - share them - and if you can support the LAPC by purchasing a copy. R.Burn


CPFA District 4 Meet   Sunday Jan. 4th 2015  
  Eastern Ontario 
"Open"Show Champion
     Blue Bar Saddle Homer  
         Bred & Exhibited 
by Roy McNish

Thanks to all who braved some very nasty roads and wet weather to get here. Especially the Canadian Show Roller and Indian Fantail Club members whose participation makes this event possible.  The support of our hosts The Belleville Agricultural Society and the City of Belleville's Recreation and Facilities Department have been terrific as well - and key to keeping the costs of the show to a minimum.  It's a lot of work to put a show of this nature together for one day and I want to thank Jeff Waite, Jamie Chatten, Roger Boomhower, and my son Aaron Burn for getting it done.  Last but not least I want to thank our Judge for the Open Show - Jeff Draper who did a great job and was clearly committed to his role.  I have no reservations in recommending Jeff to any group as an All-Breed judge.  Good Luck to all in the year ahead.
