Found A Lost Pigeon?
No part of this website may be reproduced without the express written permission of the Australian Racing Pigeon Journal
The Journal has long been an important part of the pigeon sport in this country. It is a vehicle by which all pigeon fanciers can learn and hopefully improve their pigeons and performances, acknowledge the performances of others, express views and ideas for the future development of the sport, and keep up to date with the goings on of the pigeon fraternity. These in my mind are the four principles on which the success of the Pigeon Journal have been built and it is my intention that these principles and purposes remain intact.
The Journal was founded in 1993 by Mr Bill Wells on the belief that not everyone was getting a fair go in the existing publications. He was suceeded by Mr Richard Clingan in 1997 who remained as editor for the next decade. Editorship passed to current Editor Mr Jeff Howell at the beginning of 2007. Jeff resides at Shepparton in northern Victoria and has been involved with pigeon racing since the age of 7. Jeff currently competes with the Goulburn Valley Pigeon Club prior to which 3 years were spent racing with the Box Hill Homing Club in the Victorian Homing Association. Jeff has had some success during that time winning the Shepparton and Districts Pigeon Club Aggregate in 2005.
