Stan is one of the newer converts to pigeons, taking up the hobby relatively recently due to the influence of his long time friend Fred Maenpa. With Fred's help, Stan has naturally developed a love for Pouters - Brunners and Voorburg Shield Croppers being his favorite breeds. Stan has a great work ethic and is currently working as one of the LAPC table show chairman. He can definitely be counted on to participate in the LAPC's meeting and steps forward whenever something needs to be done. He is currently our Club's right-hand-man.
Charlie is a relatively new LAPC officer, and is best described as a hard working critical thinker. He is also serving as the President of the National Pouter and Cropper Club. He has displayed great leadership skills with his favorite breed, the Horseman Pouter, by bringing it from being almost completely unknown a few years back to one of the favorite Pouters in major shows. His personality is a bit on the quieter side, however, when Charlie talks, everyone listens. He brings a strong business sense to LAPC board meetings. He is currently serving as one of the three Table Show Chairmen. Charlie is no doubt a potential leader of the LAPC in near future.
Shaheed is a relatively newcomer into the Club joining only a few years back. Immediately after joining, he helped the Club to leap into the internet age creating a brand new website. From there he went on and created our YouTube video channel and made wonderful videos of our shows, monthly programs etc. He also administers our group chat site and most importantly, he has been producing our well-received wonderful monthly Bulletins since he joined taking it to a different level. In his personal life, he is a Civil Engineer working for Caltrans and a proud father of five kids. His wife Rifa is his big inspiration for pigeons, and they raise Frillbacks, Jacobins, and Indian Fantails.
We cherish the memories of our wonderful friends who has left us. They may be gone but not forgotten....
