Liberation Report

. Peter Matthews, Paul Hawkins, Mick Clothier, Harry Graham, Peter Dykstra and Dave Hazlewood unloaded and settled the birds in our crates without a hitch. Shed is secured and Dave Hazlewood is keeping a watchful eye on their welfare every few hours. Only two eggs found in the crates. We all will be back there at 5.00 am to ready them for the release. SCF Birds were liberated in calm conditions, birds came straight out of the Club house, heading South West before gaining height and setting a direct Southern Course, clear as a bell, mild temperatures. The SCF Committee and SCF Long Distance Committee wish to thank the due diligence and hard work of our "Queensland Connection" and also want to put heaps of praise on the valued work of our SCF Truck driver Bill and his "mate" Micko the Liberator.
