The members of the Spartanburg County Racing pigeon club, would like to bid a fond farewell to one of oldest members.
78 year old Herb Geier Died Saturday 3/16/13 after an accident on his 4 wheeler. Herb had retired from racing due to health problem a few years ago. But when he raced he was serious about it. I witnessed him flying a whole OB season with 2 birds once. He didn't throw in the towel just because he didn't have a lot of birds to fly, "You only need one" was his motto. Good bye Herb. R.I.P. your friends at the SCO.
