Greater New Orleans Combine Auction & Seminar

A Note From Vick About The Event

The event was a great success. It was a special day as all the pigeon folks gathered together to just talk racing pigeons. The GNOC really appreciates and thanks everyone for supporting this event. We had folks that drove 100 miles one way to be there. That shows the passion is still alive for pigeon sport.

The event had many key attractions including 25 world class racing pigeons and an awesome seminar by Frank McLaughlin. Frank  touched on many key topics that included racing, feeding and medication. There was a strong emphasis on the over-medication of our racing pigeons.

Ed Minvielle and Dean Ledet set up a portable sale counter for Siegel Pigeon supplies which I’m sure everyone truly appreciated.  Kenny Becklehimer was so nice to donate the food for the event in the past. It is truly a privilege to be surrounded by a group of people that are always willing to make the sacrifices to just make things happen.

For all the others that helped out getting the place set up that morning, selling tickets and donating prizes, thank you so much.

A special shout out to Tom Wesner for making this all happen. I have to admit I didn’t do much this time. Tom and Ian Davies also made all the arrangements for Frank and the birds to make their way to New Orleans.

Nice Job my friends!

I have included some pictures for those who couldn’t make it and we’ll have more information to share at the next combine meeting how it all turned out at the end.

Many thanks and see ya soon.
