A message from the President:

I would like to welcome all our new and old members to the start of racing this weekend and wish everyone success for the 2016 season. We all look forward to the first race on the new GMPF transporter.

This season has already seen many changes and as the season develops we will see many more!

The GMPF pigeons will travel to races in the most modern transporter the GMPF has ever had and the expectations from the flyers is high at the start of the season.

I hope that the competition will be the strong, along with the dedication to the birds, so that they may compete over the many weeks to come.

I wish everyone success and fly well!
