I often get asked why is the summer race so expensive, simple reason the
international fanciers are not going to send their “champions” to come and
race for R50 000 prize money as it is just too expensive to get the pigeons
here, we now have pigeons on the way from Europe to take part in the
International summer race to be held early February 2019 and the cost per
pigeon will almost be R1500 just to get them here after transport,
quarantine etc. so sending a team of 5 costs them about R15 000 then only 1
is entered so yes we have to make it expensive in order to attract them but
we always have a plan for the local fanciers who wants to also race the
summer race to test their pigeons in those conditions but cannot afford the
R7500 per pigeon entry fees.
Here is a proposal for you to have a look at and to let me know if you would be interested to take part in the summer club series. Entrance dates will be from now till end of September 2018.
Please have a look and let me know if you would be interested in the
proposal before I advertise it. Please note this will be a separate
competition and none of these pigeons will be eligible to take part in the
R7500 summer race. On the last race they will be liberated 30minutes after
the Summer Race pigeons as well.

The first thing we all want to know is costs?
The cost to send a team of 10 babies to the club will be R6000. 60% will be
paid out as prize money.
Should you wish to enter less than 10 pigeons you may enter individual
pigeons at a cost of R700 per pigeon, no reserve pigeons allowed.
What happens to the pigeons after the racing season?
The top 30 pigeons, plus all money winners will be sold after the final race
in February 2019. Split between the loft and the owner will be 50% each. The
rest of the pigeons will be sold at R300 per pigeon with the breeder getting
1st option to purchase.
The pigeons will compete in 5 Races (20 positions per race to count for the
all bird averages). Prize money per race based on a minimum of 20 teams
Club Champ: (20 positions per race to count for the all bird averages only)
