    where do your pigeons trap when daily loft flying? do they trap to their own sections or to the middle section?

    My racing partner & i have been using their system,and we were 4th & 10th fed with old hen’s..WALSH & RAJA…

    I’m sorry , but not all of us can get away with having a ramshack of a loft sitting in our gardens , some of us have neighbours who moan like fuck.

    You fly the pigeons, not the loft.
    Fanciers like these prove you don’t have to have tiled roofs, sliding doors etc. Good pigeons on a good system will win flying to any type of loft.

  5. chickentony says:

    yes they are deff genuine there racing results are there to back them up two very good flyers even if the lofts are a pile of rubble.

  6. kslicker says:

    Ha ha. Thats a good one. Seriously though, do you think these guys are genuine?

  7. chickentony says:

    I WOULDN’t even put the mother in law in that loft

  8. LilaAura says:

    They didn’t even film it for the DVD because the actor who played Asparagus/Gus (who also plays Growltiger) was too old to do the part. I wish they’d swapped this for Pekes and Policles though, it’s better.

  9. nukaxcola says:

    I wish they’d kept this in the DVD!

    @makialink – you were right – holy crap!! that is amazing that Griddlebone hit that!!

  11. sjcrea says:

    Yes it does. I`ve had this since 1992 and transfered it onto DVD years ago

  12. ValtronW says:

    The hell? Are you serious? Does it even have “Memory”?!

  13. sjcrea says:

    it`s not an official DVD so I don`t think Ebay would be allowed to let people sell it. but i could be wrong

  14. Mavericker7 says:

    Where would I get a copy of a DVD like the one you have? From Ebay?

  15. sjcrea says:

    The one I have does. only missing parts are the overture (it starts straight at Are you blind…) and a short cut in the Skimble number

  16. Schulzman94 says:

    NO 🙁

  17. Mavericker7 says:

    The DVD version of Cats has Growltiger’s Last Stand featured in it?

  18. MakiaLink says:

    Holy crap Griddlebone’s entry note!!!

  19. sjcrea says:

    I have this version on DVD…. much better quality!
    I had no idea it was considered as rare.
    This video was taken in April 1992 on a saturday Matinée. 15 people were leaving the show that night…
