Welcome to the Victorian Homing Association
The Victorian Homing Association (VHA) was the first racing pigeon organisation established in Victoria. It is committed to the welfare, breeding and racing of pigeons and all members are required to comply with the Victorian Code of Practice for Keeping and Racing Pigeons.
For many years its headquarters was located in Swan St, Richmond where hundreds of fanciers gathered on a weekly basis to basket their birds. As the needs of the organisation changed and many flyers moved out to the east of Melbourne the headquarters was also moved to its present location in Notting Hill.
The VHA is run by an executive which includes the President, Secretary and Treasurer who act on behalf of the members under its rules and regulations within its constitution. They hold monthly meetings where both the executives and delegates vote on all financial expenditure, determine the line of flight for future races and any other matters brought to them for consideration.
The VHA is dedicated to the welfare, breeding, racing and promotion of the sport of racing pigeons. So, if you are interested in finding out more about the greatest backyard sport in the world or want to become a member, we would love to get you started. Please contact any of our executives or club secretaries who would be happy to hear from you.
As lockdown is being released this Thursday night basketting will take place on Friday for Sunday's race at Hay as per our rules. Although restrictions are being eased let's use common sense and initiative at our basketting centres to avoid congregation of large groups of flyers at venues. I intend to forward the VRPB Covid safekeeping basketting plan to centre supervisors for their perusal. These are a general guide only.
The race schedule has been distributed so that flyers can plan ahead for the remainder of the season.
The 2021 life rings are now available through the ring secretary Hank Merbis Phone 0409 187 957 and he can post them out, otherwise secretaries from each club can make suitable arrangements to collect them. The rings will cost $1.00 each.
