Important Announcements

Hello All:

I want to update you on the 2018 Texas Center Winter Meeting that just concluded in New Braunfels, TX. The host club did an outstanding job entertaining and feeding us. Anita Schaffer won Best in Show and Guillermo Cisneros won Best Opposite Sex, at the 2019 Texas Center Sanctioned Championship Show held on Saturday at the Comal County Fairgrounds. Mexican Food was served for lunch, Siegel’s was there with pigeon supplies for sale and a fun raffle was held. In the afternoon, there was a live/I-Pigeon Auction of Top Quality Pigeons. After the show and auction, we were treated to a fantastic barbeque dinner and get together at Joey and Phyllis Jones’ “The Real Pit BBQ” Restaurant. THANK YOU New Braunfels Pigeon Club!

Sunday morning we conducted our annual winter business meeting and breakfast at a scenic venue right on the banks of the Guadalupe River. Among other items, there was a great discussion regarding the Center’s possible switch from
WinCompanion to MyPigeons. Ed Minville and Bud Williams gave a point/counterpoint presentation on what each program offers, pros and cons, current status of pertinent software updates, cost, etc. The member discussion that followed was spirited and everyone agreed acquiring complete, unbiased information on both programs is key to making an informed choice on which program would benefit the Center most. On motion, we agreed to submit the question for a delegate vote at the Summer Convention. Between now and then, look for updates and more information on both programs on our Texas Center website, including “links” to demo sites.

After the business meeting, everyone went out to Joe Schaefer’s place for lunch and the final 300-mile race. It was a beautiful sunny and brisk day for racing. Joe had a great return, with 7 birds on the first drop. Congrats to everyone who clocked, that’s what it’s all about! Check out the race results on

Don’t forget that the 2019 Summer Convention will be held in Tulsa, OK. We have some awesome plans for the ladies, like going to The Pioneer Woman Mercantile in Pawhuska, OK and the Affair of the Heart Show. NEWS FLASH! The Northside Limited Racing Pigeon Club of Houston, TX has graciously accepted the bid to put on the 2019 Winter Meeting, Grand Championship Show and Pigeon Race. As always, you can visit our Texas Center website for updates on upcoming shows, conventions, and other events and news. Until next time, Keep’em Flying!

Yours in the Sport,

Roland Gutierrez-President
