 "Sampson Brothers Loft comes Full Circle" 

Long Distance Champions!

In the year 2000 Sampson Brothers Loft set a new goal, they decided that they would again specialize in the Long Distance racing.  In the early years they were specialist at Long Distance,  in 1992 they decided they would concentrate on YB racing. With the development of Sampson Brothers Light System they revolutionized the sport of YB racing in America winning 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 New England Open 300 (560 (km) Vs 4869 pigeons. Many other times they have won the top 10 or more positions in the Boston Concourse as well Vs 1200 to 2400 pigeons..

Due to the elder Sampson's (John) health (pigeon allergies) and time restrictions it was decided two years ago, that Long Distance is what they should specialize in again, Long Distance racing requires less work for the fancier and the quality of the pigeons more determine your results, than the system.  In 2001 they were 2nd New England Open 500, missing 1st prize by 2 seconds, 2002 was a building year and in 2003 they met their goal.

In less than 3 years they have accomplished their new goal, they have "come full circle",  Long Distance Champions once again. The pigeons are basically the same family, they never needed to change. However the methods have changed quite allot with total emphasis for Young birds and Old geared to Long Distance racing. The overall quality of the pigeons have still allowed them to have some outstanding performances at the shorter distances, Young birds and Old birds as well. 

Most astonishing is the fact that the Sampson's need a South West wind to do well in the Concourse or Opens, in 2003 OB season, the wind was out of the North nearly every week.
