Ad in Pigeon Digest

  • Discussed who will handle the birds. Phil says he is building a loft just for futurity birds, plus John said he will take up to 40 birds
  • Phil: more birds = more revenue, plus the auction, so the ad should pay for itself
  • the auction will be only local
  • full page B&W ad: $280
  • half page B&W ad: $185 (we would publish this twice for a total of $370
  • Motion made for half-page ad, seconded and approved

AU Bands

  • Club will no longer buy AU bands. Too expensive in the small lots. Bands can be purchased by individual members cheaper elsewhere
  • We have 2016 bands that we will sell off for 50 cent per band
