Here it is; signed, sealed and delivered

better than expected!

The new Greater Melbourne transporter was on display at the Peter Phillips sale Dandenong club rooms on Sunday the 15th of May.

Congratulations to all concerned, the transporter looks fantastic. Not only does it look great, but upon inspection everyone can see that a lot of thought has gone into the vehicle’s design and construction. Things like the basket design, watering & feed system, ventilation,  right down to the modified truck engine exhaust. We can now be assured that our birds are given the best possible transporting conditions.

Exciting times for the Greater Melbourne Pigeon Federation!

DOM_3305 DOM_3307 Peter Phillips bird auction was well supported with the Dandenong club rooms full to capacity. It was good to see so many flyers from all different Feds there enjoying the day.

Many thanks to the Dandenong pigeon club for putting on a great day!

As always, John Shore did a great job as auctioneer.
