Pattaya OLR: non-payers auction
Not long ago, the Top 100 Final and Top 100 Ace Pigeons of the Pattaya OLR were sold on PIPA. It was a fantastic auction, of which a few of the buyers didn't manage to pay for their purchased pigeons (on time). PIPA decided to bring these pigeons back to auction; a second chance to obtain one of the stars of the largest One Loft Race in the world!
The highly professional and dedicated organization of the Pattaya International Pigeon Race, the way it is set up, and its development over the years, is admirable. World’s best fanciers battle on this super One Loft Race, which quickly grew out to become one of the most prestigious in the world. Late September, nearly 9,000 pigeons started the training flights across small distances. In a month’s time, the training flights distance increased from 7km to 100km across 15 flights. In November, training flight distances increased to 80 – 220 km, twice a week, until in December the Hot Spot races started from 245km up to the semi-Final across 430km. On 7th January, the Final was raced across 530km with 5,805 pigeons in relatively favorable conditions. A group of 6 pigeons arrived together with a speed of almost 1560 m/min with a 20-minute lead on the rest. The winner was the American Mike Ganus and amongst the first 6 pigeons, 3 continents were represented.

A blessing in disguise for interested buyers and a second chance to purchase exceptional quality. Sometimes, buyers overplay their hand and can't pay for their purchased pigeon. In other cases, problems with export make it impossible to transfer a pigeon to the buyer within reasonable time. Therefore, these pigeons are brought to auction a second time around. The lots include pigeons from different origins, but all from golden bloodlines - as you would expect on PIPA.
