SA LONG DISTANCE CLUB
have started on building their own unit to fit on the back of the Holden Colorado they bought last year.

The 2 aluminium units can be lifted on and off the tray top and will carry up to 600 birds. Perry Burton with help from Brian Donovan and Dennis Russell has been building the unit for our club. He will also be building a canopy which will sit over the units in the pictures. We commend the work being done by Perry and the team of helpers. Please click on this hyperlink to see a Youtube video of the unit in progress. http://youtu.be/bYAe_1LVC0c
