Got this this morning.

"  Good morning everyone. I am sure you have all been following the news on the Avian Influenza outbreaks. The first attachment is the latest release from CFIA and the second one is a zone map of the outbreaks and buffer zones, there is also a 3rd one in Bright. This is not good news for our hobby and all we can really do at this time is take one day at a time and follow the updates from CFIA. This quarantine in zone one is already preventing 4 of our SWOA members from attending the auction tomorrow. When you are in the 10 kilometer radius know as the buffer zone, your birds are on total lock down. This means no movement of birds on or off the property and no loft flying.
    You will notice CFIA strong recommendations, and SWOA has decided to cancel our trailer auction scheduled for tomorrow. We have to do what is best for the hobby in the long run. Please make sure all your members are notified of this cancelation. I will keep you informed of new updates as they arrive. I understand that if no more outbreaks in zone one a date will be set to lift the quarantine.
   
George   "

They should do good. SWOA has 10 clubs, from short flier to long is 160 miles. About 60 miles wide. Stiff competition to win the Fed. Have done it occasionally. Twice only day bird.
Always hope!! Why we fly them!!

30 miles north of the GPO 30 miles east & 50 miles south of the GPO taking in all the Mornington pennisula area etc. Wonthaggi hasn't had a club for years down there, sadly & I can remember when the had 20 odd members in the good old days  Smile  Smile K. Now !!! a little story about the Wonthaggi flyers. Years ago, when I flew against them on the west track here I was told they would clock before me being up the the top end Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes as such & I said rubbish lol! lol! lol! being a flyer of some repute Wink Wink back then,  but when the wind blew strong from the north & all the birds went around the bottom of bay here they did Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad & I had only to give them about 60 miles & one bloke there Al Wosney was 100 plus miles as he lived at Foster near Wilsons Promontory where your birds track when they come up from Tassie K Wink Wink. Fortunately Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad I don't have to worry about the Wonthaggi boys now as they have been replaced by the Rosebud mob Smile Smile (50miles south) & I'm still going to be Rat sh*te again as we all are back on the west track again Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad this year. cheers

True "Charlie Webb" he was like a shag on a rock  Rolling Eyes  Rolling Eyes down there back in the late fifties etc when I first visited him, with one of his mates in the game. it was a long trip up to Frankston for Charlie back then (No freeway) to basket his team of chumps Wink Wink there before the Rosebud club was formed. Charlie had a bit to do with a bloke called Col Bower Smile Smile "hard man" Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Cow farmer & trotter's, raced the Gurneys & Bastians back then, before he got his grizzle family. Col lol! lol! lol! taught me, the differance between mothers milk & what comes out of a cow when fresh Smile Smile & warm as a young lad & it's some thing I've never forgotten even today. cheers
