The COM have set the SAHPA Capitation fee for 2020 at $200 per
member, a reduction of $20 from last year due to the Treasurer being
able to de-register the SAHPA from GST. The new Affiliate fee is now
$100.
Thanks

North Suburban sale correction, $500 bonus is split $325 to the
trainer and $175 to the breeder so if you buy back your own bird and
it wins you pocket the $500, an incentive for anyone to donate a
bird.
Cheers

The Annual Presentation at Angle Park Greyhound Track in Chasers
Restaurant was once again a great success we had 119 attendees, once
again a lot of interstate flyers attended, It was great to see Life

preparation of the event and all the trophies and we owe him a lot of
gratitude.

SAHPA Top 30 Aggregate Points Auction - A big thank you to members
that donated birds to our sale, we raised $7113. Thank you to Tim
Fawcett of pigeonsales.com.au for providing such a great service to
the SAHPA, Tim donates his time and auction site to the SAHPA each
year for no charge, our only expense is the photoshopping. The
average price was $245 for the 29 lots, some of the top prices were
$826, $625, $505, $435, quite a few in the $375 price range. The
funds raised will be used on a project at the SAHPA Hall to improve
our roof guttering, down pipes, drainage to the road. It is great
that our top flyers support the SAHPA by donating each year and we
thank the fanciers from around Australia that purchased the birds and
we wish them every success.

We have been advised by Tim Fawcett that due to the wonders of modern
technology, laptop & wi-fi connection, he has been able to start the
Top 30 sale. So it is now up and running and any interested parties
can commence bidding. The Sale will end as normal on Sunday night.
Thanks to all of the flyers that donated. Good Luck.

Notice to all Members,
Unfortunately, due to a family emergency Tim Fawcett has had to catch
a flight to England. The Top 30 bird sale will be delayed until he
returns. All bird's photos have been taken and they are being well
looked after. It could be a week or two before he is back. This will
also affect the 2 sales that are currently running at present. The
highest bidders will still be successful but the bird cannot be
despatched until he returns. We will notify members by text message
when the Top 30 auction will start. Tim has asked that Members
refrain from phoning him and all contact if necessary to be by email.
Thanks
John Harper
Secretary SAHPA Inc.
