The uncertainty has played havoc most probably with everyones sanity.
Now it has been declared unconstitutional.All just enough to raise even more suspicion.Be that as it may
we can now start organising our season eventually.
Fortunatly it has not hampered our season to much.
We have decided not to alter our season program regarding our races for now.
The only change is that the whole season will be moved on by a week.
Thus first race on the 21st of June. Our tosses start this weekend. Birds look extremely fit and have been in the air
with open loft virtually everyday.They have been pushed to the extremes and have enjoyed
the daily exercise. Been great to observe and watch them in the mornings how they
disappear out of sight for a good couple of hours.
Going to be a good evaluation wether this could have improved their homing instincts. Maybe covid19 might have had its positives.Might have taught us something. Time will tell.
Short tosses to begin with just to make them baskit comfortable then will push to a 50 km
Fish river, 80km Peddie then a 100km King williamstown etc.
We will not alter our cross border liberation points of Ixopo and Grey town as yet.We
almost certain by the time we reach that period of our program everything will be open. If
not plan B of having a few final Kokstad liberations will be implemented.But that is just a
slight distant decision for now.
We will concentrate on our immediate program within our
borders for now.
The birds will be on benzing live from the 50km mark.Will keep every one posted as we go
It has been tough through this period and financially things have also taken a hammering.
As in previous letter with the rand weakening various expenses have become alot more
expensive.The benzing licence,the electronic rings and the diesel is bound to increase even
more in our season. Same with feed and medication.Thus a slight appeal to everyone to try
and settle their accounts asap as cashflow is required to drive the season.
After all the negatives we as management are just so happy that things or season has started,
it just gives us a great feeling to the so called new normal. It gives us so much purpose to
the day as the virus has surpressed it for so long and the feeling that season might not
happen was so depressing.
But now the spirits have been lifted and we ready for lift off.
We are still working on our annual baby race which is intertwined with the 4th race from
Kokstad. We are considering a live auction at this stage. We honestly dont want to discard it
as it has been part of the loft from inception. More details to follow soon.
Come and enjoy the season with us and let us make the season one of the greatest and most
memorable ones, imagine been crowned the Covid19 season champion. An accolade never
to be forgotten. 2020 is the year.
This news letter is regarded as the official opening of Diaz one loft 2020 pigeon racing
