|Klapmuts Lofts 2018 – Competitions
Currently the pigeons are circling and we will take them for road training from the end of this month.
The schedule for the sprint competition is as follows.
The cost of entries will be as follows:
For 300 paid entries the payouts will be as follows:
1st R50 000
2nd R20 000
3rd R10 000
4th R 5 000
5th -10th R 1 000
If fewer or more entries are received the prize money will be adjusted in a corresponding ratio.
This competition is for all the pigeons that partook or were eligible to partake in the sprint series.
Once we complete the sprint series we will have the further two races with the following payouts; for example, 200 paid entries at R 750 per entry.
Prince Albert 300km – 16 September 2018
1st R15 000
2nd R 8 000
3rd R 2 000
4th R 2 000
5th R 2 000
The total Payout for the 300km race is R 29 000
Beaufort West 400km – 30 September 2018
1st R 30 000
2nd R 15 000
3rd R 10 000
4th R 5 000
5th R 3 000
The total Payout for the 400km race is R 63 000.
This means for an entry of R 750 the prize money competed for will total R 92 000.
The combination of the various formats will ensure that we reward the pigeons for doing well in averages and also those that prefer the longer races.
As I have always said, Klapmuts Lofts always has a very tough series and the fact that we have a sprint series does not indicate that the series will be easy as the pigeons have to deal with the mountains and the hawks which influence returns in all types of weather.
