Meet Shang Vang

A brief overview of my background and endeavors: I'm Shang Vang, born in '77, a husband and father of four—three boys and one girl. I've been married since '95. My fascination with pigeons began at a young age, leading me to buy pigeons from a local flyer named Louie De'Maio for a steep five dollars each when I was just twelve. Eventually, I had the opportunity to clean his loft, and in return, I received a pigeon. Fast forward nine years, I was married with a young family, owned a place of my own, and revisited Louie in 1997. That visit marked the beginning of my deeper involvement in pigeon racing. Louie bred a round of youngsters for me, mentored me, and significantly contributed to my understanding of the sport. I'm grateful for his guidance, and may he rest in peace.


After initially flying for two years, I took a break to pursue education. In 2013, I re-entered the pigeon racing scene by joining the Viking Club. By 2020, I had moved twenty miles north of the cities to have open land and build my dream loft. Joining the Royals Racing Pigeon Club for convenience, I formed a joint team with Tony Hang.


Now, let me touch on the reason for my participation in an OLR. Having worked as an Electronic Tech for 20 years, I then spent three years working with the family BBQ business. Although the business thrived, I realized my true passion lay in flying pigeons. Determined to give my full effort to this pursuit, I decided to devote myself entirely to pigeon racing. My house is situated on a ten-acre lot, and I've remodeled my entire racing loft to align with this new venture. I am committed to dedicating all my efforts to host a successful race here in Minnesota.
