Below is the complete loft sell out of long time Twin Cities (TC) racing pigeon fancier Tom Lavelle, due to his untimely passing. Tom's family of birds were old line "Buitta" based. The Buitta family is known not only on race day for their toughnes on the distance races, but their impeccable beauty/body conformation. They were created by a gentleman by the name of George Buitta who was the loft manager of Curtis Bastine back in the 40's and 50's. The Buittas came to the Twin Cities area back in the 60's, and immediately had an impact. Many fanciers even today, in the Minnesota area can attribute much of thiere success especially at the distance races to this family of birds. Buittas seem to cross well with just about any family, and this is a rare opportunity for those looking to get this family of birds.
