The Greater Seattle Racing Pigeon Club is an organization of racing pigeon enthusiasts who live in the Puget Sound region of Washington State, U.S.A. This group consists of over 30 flyers from north of Seattle to south of Sumner and from the Olympic Peninsula on the west to the Cascades in the east. Races range from an average of 75 air miles from Toledo, WA to the furthest race station, Shingletown, CA, 500 air miles for most of the competitors.
A pigeon race is a race against the clock. Each flyer's loft is measured using global positioning to determine the exact airline distance from the race station. Members meet at the club house to enter their birds in the race and send them on the Concourse truck. On the morning of the race, the birds are released to return to their respective homes.
Each bird has a computerized leg band which records the day, minute, and second the bird arrives home. After arrival, members again convene at their club house to calculate each bird's speed in yards per minute using total flight time divided by the total yards from their home to the race station.
