Carnival Lofts Club Competition 2015

(Please note! the normal Winter 2015 series will continue as is. The Club Competition is something different and no pigeons taking part here will race in the Winter 2015 series!!)

 How much will it cost me to take part in the Club Competition?

The cost to enter a team of maximum 20 babies to the club will be R12 500 (Clubs or friends can agree to breed the team and enter them under a syndicate name.) You can arrangement to pay this over 6 payments, deposit of R2500 when you bring the first pigeons and the balance of R10 000 in 5 installments as it suits you. The total amount of R12 500 has to be settled by 31 May 2015.

You may enter a B Team of 20 pigeons at a cost of only R10 000 for the B team

What is the Carnival Club Competition?

This is an opportunity for you as fancier to enter a team of maximum 20 babies to take part in the Carnival Lofts Club Competition on a weekly basis like you would normally race a team of pigeons from your own loft. The big difference off course is that all pigeons are racing to one loft and not to many different lofts in an area. (All liberations will be a combined liberation with other fanciers, clubs or organizations in 2015!)

Why do this?

We have spoken to many fanciers who feel that either the cost of training, medication and even housing pigeons are becoming too expensive or the payouts are negligible as many fanciers do not want to take part in extra schemes, arguing that the normal cost is already very high.

The Carnival Club Competition allows you to breed a team of 20 babies and have them race every weekend for 16 weeks on the trot over distances that vary between 170 km and 650 km

All fanciers are welcome to join us on race days to “clock” with us and maybe have a braai and a brag. All results will be live on the website for the world to see.

Averages?

We shall keep single bird, all bird 30 positions per race to count, best bird short distance, best bird middle distance and best bird long distance averages as well as overall best bird for the season.

What happens to the pigeons after the season?

The owner decides. Should you wish to sell a bird we will assist, or you can collect any/all your entries for breeding. You may also leave any number of your entries to race in Carnival the old bird series in 2016 here at the lofts. The decision is yours as it remains your pigeon.
