“BEFOREWE GET DONE WITH YOU, TRUST ME, YOU….WILL KNOW AND UNDERSTANDTHE TRUE MEANING OF VERUM, JUSTICIA, VENERATIO.”
Tonight, I amwondering if I am the only pigeon flyer in America that doesn't know the meaning of thismessage sent to our Infractions chairman after the AU board ruled against this man’s interest in anAU infractions dispute? Should anybody donating their time for the goodof the national effort to improve pigeon racing really have to put up with this?Did some of us forget that these guys are volunteers? Yes, of course, I googledit, and found the meaning to be somewhat vague and varied,with considerable leeway as to how it could have been intended,but it certainly sounds like a veiled threat to the reasonable mindof this writer. It makes one ask, “what is the sport becoming?”
WELCOMETO PAIRAN’S WORLD.
Likable, fair-mindedand knowledgeable, 67 year old
Ron Pairan, ofMillersport, Ohio, has been a member of
the Lancaster PigeonClub since 1987, joined the AU Board in 2006 as Lakes ZoneDirector, and was elected AU Vice President in 2014,but in addition to that, he holds undoubtedly the mostthankless job in the sport; Chairman of the AU Infractions Committee.
A 2013 AU Legend ofthe Sport, Pairan is also an American Trenton Breeder and AU Certified Judge,who knows a little about breeding good pigeons, and the racing of good pigeons, havingwon the Triple Crown One Loft Race in 2001 and 2012, having placed 21st once inthe Million Dollar Race, having had birds in the first drop in the Devore Classic andthe Devore Challenge, having won the Joe Stankos Memorial Race and the Miami Valley Sportsman's Race. Pairan has also bred 28 AU Champions and 3AU Elite Champions,and has won numerous Digest Awards. He has also never missed an old or young birdrace series since he started racing. In Ohio, Pairan has held numerous offices inhis club and combine, and is currently the Race Secretary of the COC Combine. Thevalue of that experience for you and me, is that Pairan understands how hard it is tomake a pigeon club work even when things are going well, and can relate easily to the issuesthat AU members call him about when seeking guidance to solve their own organizationalproblems. He understands “fractious”, in other words.
While on the AU board,Pairan created The Master Loft Award, the Yearling Award, and compiledthe Youth Idea Book (which is a free download from the AU website), and createdthe current complaint form placing emphasis on trying to solve infraction issueslocally, whenever possible. He and his Lancaster club-mates have done many public pigeonreleases, and Pairan has been a presenter and speaker at the Cincinnati HomeSchoolers Convention for the last 2 years, trying to encourage youth into the sport. Now,again, why is this background important to you and to me? Because
Pairan knows thesport, and none of us want some bozo running the Infractions Committee that’sthrowing Hail Marys all the time. The seat requires extensive experience, as wellas self-control as you can see from jab thrown at Pairan in the opening of this article, andPairan has lots of both things going for him.
While there isnothing tough about being Vice President of the AU organization when you are sittingin the shadow of the President Tom Coletti and Executive Vice President Jay Holder(who also shields you from most of the sun’s rays), in his role as Infractions Chairman,Ron Pairan is out there alone, holding the proverbial tiger by the tail, and taking theheat while heading up a very important AU committee. “Since 1999, 51 infractions havebeen filed, and 10 members have been expelled from the AU. The work is complicated,time-consuming, but important to the integrity of the sport”, said
Pairan. In this role,the straight-forward, former school teacher of 35 years, occasionally has to gohead-to-head with some bristling personalities when interpretations don’t go their way, but he cantake the pressure, something he learned many years ago as President of his localTeacher’s Association. At its very best, all the decisions the committee makes “will be wrong” inthe eyes of the losing party, and may be wrong to both parties, if both sides need somecorrection. “Another thing that people need to remember is that, because we try toprotect the privacy of the people involved, rarely does the whole story ever get presented tothe general membership”, Pairan added.
HOWTHE SYSTEM WORKS.
Here is how theprocess normally works: a call comes into the national office from an individual with anorganizational problem that is not getting attention. The call gets directed to KarenClifton. Many calls come in that result in no followup, but still get all the attention theyneed. After a discussion and an initial evaluation, if no other options are viable asdetermined by Clifton, and if the caller still wishes to file an infraction,dates are noted and notesare taken. The file is numbered, and the details are forwarded to the Infraction Chairman.More calls are made by the Chairman, and more discussion of the dispute takes place.If the initial caller can't get the problem remedied at the local level, the Infractionschairman assigns the case to one of three AU Investigators. One AU investigator is aProsecuting Attorney, and a second generation pigeon flyer. A second is currently a CriminalAttorney. The third is retired after having served his state as a State Investigator in childabuse cases for 32 years. Again, more calls are made, details are probed, and morequestions are asked, as the facts in the dispute are sorted out. One function of theinvestigation is to confirm that the organizations are following their own by-laws, and are notviolating AU rules, according to Clifton. After the process is completed, theinvestigators summarize all details in a written report, make recommendations on how they think the problem should be remedied, and pass the information on to the AU Board, where the topic is discussed by the full board again before a finaldecision is made. Never is the decision on settling an infraction made by one man, but Ron Pairan has the unleasant duty to share the news with those involved.
Sometimes wheninfraction committee decisions don't go the way the offending parties want them togo, the thought of bailing from the AU to the IF enters one’s thinking. In caseslike that, it is important for flyers to know that the AU and IF have a Letter of Reciprocity, meaning members in poor standing in one group are unable to ignore the rulings of the organization they are with, by jumping to the other group. The IF is notified whenever parties subject to sanctions part ways with the AU. In the end, no one wants to get tied down in these issues, but sometimes there is no way out. When that time comes, we are thankful that there are guys like Ron Pairan and his investigative team to help sort out the details. However, in the end, it is always more satisfying to keep problem-solving and decision-making at home.
