AU Scholarship Auction - Success!
Ron Pairan, AU Vice President
On behalf of the American Racing Pigeon Union, I would like to thank the very generous breeders who donated some fantastic birds for our successful 2017 AU Scholarship Auction conducted during the convention. The AU awards three $2,000 scholarships each year to AU members or relatives of AU members, under 23 years of age.
The following is a list of those donors:
Zohorovic Ado (Ado Family Loft)
Scott Bennis (Dakota Loft)
Alex and Cindy Bieche
Crazy Al and Joanie Christeleit
Steve Mardis (CBS)
Damon Raze (Mystery Loft)
Hernis Rodriguez (Grande Loft)
Manuel Rodriguez (Gallo Loft)
Sal Rodriguez (Sal’s Loft)
Serrao and Bartz
Kevin Williams (Never Happen & Tim)
I would also like to thank Karen Clifton and Deone Roberts, committee members Shannon Demler and Bob McKenna, as well as all the AU Board members who helped solicit donations.
Bob McKenna received the birds, vaccinated them, had their pictures taken, and shipped the birds to Arizona. During the auction, Bob was on the phone with iPigeon, while his wife Naomi took care of the technical work. The auction would never have taken place without the help of Dick Doud. Dick received the birds and housed them before the auction. On the day of the auction, he brought the birds to the hotel, along with the show cages, and agreed to ship the birds to their new homes after the auction. Thank you Dick!
