 AU’s 2008 Showcase Loft Contest Winners – It’s A Tie!

Two AU members tied for 1st place in the annual AU Showcase Loft Contest. Each year AU members are invited to submit photographs, plans and descriptions of their lofts to the Showcase Loft Contest. The lofts help the public understand what is necessary for a race team setting. It is also fun for members of the sport to compare designs.

Winners were selected via on-line voting through the American Racing Pigeon Union web site.

This year, two entries tied. Rick Barker, out of Temecula, California, who is long-time member of the AU and part of the Valleys Invitational Club. Norm Smith is also a long-time member of the AU and races with the Chattanooga Club. He lives in Dayton, Tennessee.

“It is very challenging to pick the winner out of so many excellent entries,” shared AU Executive Director, Karen Clifton. “It was last year that we started the on-line voting to see what fanciers and the public would select as their favorites. The entries are attractive and demonstrate to the public and newcomers what healthy housing looks like.”

The winners will each receive a limited edition print in the AU Convention Series by artist Jim Brown, and a plaque proclaiming their win.

Thank you to all participants for the great entries. All of them showed the quality of care AU members provide for their birds, reflecting well on the sport!
