Thank you for visiting my web site. My name
is Dale Martoglio. I got started in pigeons in
2003. People like John Hadlock and Jerry
Bernard got me interested in the sports. I
didn't have much luck in 2003, losing by 30
seconds to 1.5 minutes in a couple of races.
Relocating has slowed my progress in the
last couple of years. In 2004 I placed 3rd in
the 100 mile, old bird race, with a bird from
Bob Kinney in the Help a Beginner program.
I sent birds to the auction race in Evansville,
IN and took 1st place. Linda Joneli got in
touch with me for the help a beginner
program. Charlie Klipsch was my mentor.
Charlie and I have become good friends and
he still gives me advise when I need it. I
have stocked my lofts with birds from John
Hadlock, Charlie Klipsch, Harold Lammons,
Mike Ganus, Mike Anderson, and John
Lucchese. I have recently gotten married
and have settled in Dieterich, IL. My wife,
Cathy, and step-daughter, Adrienne, also
help me with my pigeons. We hope to
remain there for a while and hope to start on
the winning track.
