OFFICIAL WINTER RACE RULES FOR 2022
USA PARTICIPANTS ENTRY FEES ARE $120 USD PER BIRD, FOR THIS WINTER RACE!
Allflight Carnival Loft winter series 2022, why would you send pigeons to this race?
If you want pigeons tested in similar conditions than what your Vic Falls and Afrikapro pigeons will be racing in this is the answer, we all have too many stock pairs and too many babies to send to the big money races so why not enter a team or two into this race and test those “extra” pigeons you have. The pigeons will go through the same quarantine conditions, similar weather conditions and definitely just as strenuous a race program than any other top olr. This gives you the opportunity to make use of those extra babies you did not ship to the big money races and still give them a chance and who knows win back some money as well.
The series of races consists of 6 races with trainers in between the 6 races making it a 10 to 13 weeks season depending on the weather conditions, the shortest trainer being a 100miles and the final race flown from 400miles (generally a tough 10hour race). There are prize money on all six official races with the bulk of the prize money on the final race that carriers a prize money purse of US$35 000 if we have 750 entered pigeons at race 1. We have exceeded that number for quite a few years now and the race is well established and has been going since 2004. Winners include the likes of Alfons Klaas and Hooymans Pigeons in the past.
I am willing to offer you the USA fancier a special deal as I do know quarantine and transport works out costly, so for every team of 10 pigeons you ship to the race at a cost of US$1500 per team, you may ship an extra 10 pigeons that will be automatically activated into the race. If you do not have enough babies to ship why not get a friend and send half a team each to make up a full team of 20.
Pigeons to be rung with officially recognized 2021 or 2022 rings ONLY.
Intake 1 October 2021 to 31 January 2022.
For every pigeon sent to the loft a fee of R400 MUST be paid the day the pigeon arrives at the loft. The activation fee of R1600 per remaining pigeon/s must be paid after the Ventersburg (210km) training flight, ALL the remaining pigeons must be activated by paying the R1600 per pigeon activation fee. If a pigeon/s from a fancier is not activated within 5 days after the Ventersburg these pigeons can be sold to a 3rd party and all further rights and prize money of the pigeon will then go to the 3rd party, the original entrant/breeder will forfeit any further rights to the pigeon. All non-activated pigeons will be removed from the lofts on basketing for race 1.
The pigeons will partake in at least 5 races leading up to the final race in 2022, we will try and have a final race of about 10 hours on the wing, planned final race point will be Hanover 630km. All liberation points as well as the date of the races will be solely at management’s discretion.
Proposed race program for 2022:
The above prize money is based on 600 paid entries (500 x R2000 paid pigeons.) by 12 June 2022.
After the final race we auction all the pigeons; breeder gets 50% of net proceeds. If a pigeon is sold for less than R601 all will be offset against costs with no kickback to the breeder this rule will apply to all pigeons without a pedigree as well. No entry fees will be refunded.
Please note no pigeons previously entered in any other competition at Carnival Loft will be accepted for this event.
