Important Announcements

Hello All,

I hope this finds everyone in good health and safe at home if possible. As the coronavirus pandemic has unfolded it has become necessary to cancel many things including but not limited to the Texas center open race on May 2, 2020. The Texas Center will continue to do whatever is necessary to protect its membership in these unprecedented times thank you and stay safe stay home. Until next time keep them flying

Yours in the Sport,
Roland Gutierrez

Hello All,

As president of the Texas Center I have received several calls on the “Center’s position” as to COVID-19 and its impact on our sport. Obviously, the Center will not take or support any action which violates current city, state or federal laws or executive orders. We are also well aware that some of us have been ordered to “shelter in place” and some have not. So rather than trying to institute a blanket policy, the Center will simply let each of you make those decisions that are necessary and in your and your family’s best interest.
I can tell you that the Northeastern Oklahoma Federation of which I am a member has postponed the start of old bird season from the first week of April until the last week of April. By doing this we will have to cut a couple of races out of our racing schedule, really a small sacrifice given the current crisis.
Further, as of this writing, the Texas Center Open race will still be flown May 2, 2020 from Little Rock, Arkansas. Hopefully things will get better soon given that we are in spring now with warmer temperatures coming. Updates for the Texas Center Open Race will be posted on the website.

Until next time, take care, practice social distancing, and keep’em flying.

Roland Gutierrez
President, Texas Center


It have been brought to my attention that there is some confusion as to making application for this year’s Texas Center Hall of Fame Awards. The 2019 Old & Young bird awards must be sent in as years before to:

Tom Beard
1504 Spoon Ct.
Edmond, OK 73025

Hopefully when we get all the Texas Center club race secretaries to complete the MyPigeon information we will have an easier way to figure our awards.

Thank you and Keep'em Flyin!

To All Race Secretary’s If you have not already sent your Winspeed back up to TCrequests@yahoo.com please do so ASAP! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact Erica Reed at 918.633.8305.
