Rules

 Race rules for 2017 Carnival Lofts Racing Pigeon Club

 

The first thing we all want to know is costs?

The cost to send a team of 25 babies to the club will be R15 000. Deposit of R5000 when you bring the first pigeons and the other R10 000 must be paid by end of March 2017. The intake for babies open on 15 September 2016, last day of entry is end of February 2017.

 

What happens to the pigeons after the season?

You the owner decide, should you want to sell it we will assist, you can collect the pigeon and go breed with it or leave it to race in the old bird series in 2018 here at the lofts  the decision is yours as it stays your pigeon. Should you wish to enter it into the old bird series of 2018 a loft fee of R500 per pigeon will be charged and must be paid by the end of October 2017, all pigeons left at the lofts and not paid for by end of October 2017 will be sold with no kickback to the original entrant.

 

Planned Race Program 2017: We will attempt to get transport with the OERF again so this is only a planned race schedule.
