The Rockhampton Long Distance Club "Rocky Premier Club" conducted the 5th distance race over 600 miles.
Well done to everybody that competed in this race, another record set with returns from a 700 mile race .
Special thanks to Danny Curry and Kevin Temperley for transporting the birds and looking after them before release, couldn't have done it without you two guys.
Weather reported cold , some high cloud , perfect conditions for racing.
Birds travelled well , arrived at Caravan park mid afternoon. Birds ate and drunk well.
Up at 7 am , the Rockhampton champion birds were released, headed North East with out circling, out of sight in 1 min. Again birds commended on the way they left.
