Chris Thomas has been helping Jim with the running of the race since it commenced in 2008.
Jim was instrumental in getting Chris involved in pigeon racing, initially at Gympie in 2006 & has been mentoring him ever since.
On race day you will find Chris (the bagman) on the computer looking after the Pools, Calcutta & Pick The Time for all the punters in the crowd, he also helps Jim with the set up for the big day.
Chris has recently retired & now resides on the Mid North Coast of NSW. He is the Newcastle/Mid North Coast contact for anyone wanting to enter birds in the QLD10000 & get them to Jim.
