New Website: “Heitzman Sions”

I’d like to share part of an email I received from Earl Lowell “Robbie” aka “NO SWEAT” Robbins, Jr. that I received today.
“If anyone has not visited my new website, "HEITZMAN SIONS" I hope that you do. It is still VERY MUCH in its early-initial stages of formation and content. But at least it is finally getting some kind of start.
I'm planning on making this a website that will be rather entertaining in the long run, as well as informative. The heart of the new site will deal with my racing pigeons as I hope to show some 1,000 photos of them that I have taken over the past five years, keeping it all somewhat up to date. But I will eventually be getting into the history of Paul Sion and Charles Heitzman , done in a manner that had never been done before; several rare articles never before seen by the public will be showcased, discussed, etc.
In time I hope to have the pedigrees of the birds, their flying records and some short stories regarding them so that their photos become more relevant to you. I will also show how they are bred down --often line bred--to many of the more famous Heitzman Sions.
There are simply no other family of Heitzman Sions in the world left alive today that are excelling at long distances such as these birds. While it is somewhat true that Sions do have some certain recognizable physical characteristics it is also true that there was a great deal of variation in them too. You only need to go back through Heitzman's old Sion book and carefully look at his birds to see this; the same goes for the Sions I am now breeding and flying.
I have extended the website to cut into my own personal life to show that there is another No Sweat beyond just pigeons. As time continues I will be adding much more in this area as well, new categories, etc. You may want to do a monthly check to see the changes.”

Heitzman Sion website

Earl Lowell "Robbie" aka " NO SWEAT " Robbins, Jr.
Richmond, Kentucky

PLEASE KNOW that a new website is currently being developed devoted strictly to my Heitzman Sions. These photos all being shot in the past four years to keep all relevant to today. I hope to make this an outstanding website that will be of pleasure to all racing pigeon fanciers. In the end it will have at least 500 photographs of the current BEST true Heitzman Sions alive. Each of the photographs will eventually own-have captions explaining the various photos; many having the band numbers, names, flying records and pedigrees of each pigeon; many explaining as to which of the old Heitzman Sions the bird goes back onto in its bloodlines. And several of the photographs will have stories attached with them explaining about that photograph. I hope to eventually make this a great website that you will want to use as a reference for many years. PLEASE go to the computer and type in: "HEITZMAN SIONS" and you will begin to see the start of this website. In the end I will clean up all duplicate photos and will be adding much more text. Thank you. I hope you will enjoy what you get to see. Remember, for the really first time in many years, you are getting to see some true and genuine old line Heitzman Sions that are currently flying exceptionally well at extremely long distances. This has meant a lot of work and devotion on our end but it has all been worth it. We love our Sions. Don't let anyone fool you about their flying abilities and qualities. These are the finest. You'll not find better long distance racers.
