For those individuals that may have birds, however, are unable to race due to career, family commitments, etc., the American Racing Pigeon Union does offer a new non-competitive, non-voting membership.

The Patron Membership offers the bird enthusiast free quarterly newsletters, yearbook and zoning assistance. Promotional assistance is also available to Patron Members who wish to share their hobby.

By becoming a Patron Member (for only $25 per year), the bird enthusiast has the opportunity to sponsor avian research and preserve the pigeon fancy.

Call 405-848-5801 or e-mail augrow@aol.com for more information regarding the Patron Membership.
