All lofts must be at least 400 miles from the release station. .
All baskets will be clearly labeled when loaded to identify whose birds and what birds are in each basket.
Baskets must be paid in advance.
At least 3 members must be present at shipping. A must accompany birds when they are loaded into our baskets. Should a bird escape when loading, it would be an easy matter to have that one bird disqualified. If for any reason the escaped pigeons cannot be identified that basket will be disqualified.
Entry forms must have the flyers name and address, phone number, loft GPS readings, band numbers, color and sex of the birds that are being shipped. If you are using an electric timer you can send a printout but be sure you put your name address and phone number on the back. Also, be sure to fill in clock set times and knock off when the clock started.
After the birds have clocked the club secretary will calculate the speeds and send a copy of the electric clock printouts. If countermarks are used they and the clock tape must be sent to The Big Pigeon Race secretary. Be sure to fill in fast or slow on the race sheet and staple the countermarks to the clock tape.
When calculating the speeds make sure you include sunrise and sunset and time out for darkness on the flyers forms. Also include if the clock ran fast or slow time. In short, handle the birds arrival times as if you were having a local race and send that information to theThe Big Pigeon Race secretary. He will then match it to the form when the birds were loaded onto the trailer and review it for errors.
Note: Time out will be 30 minutes after sunset and 30 minutes before sunrise.
Any and all discrepancies will be handled by The Big Pigeon Race committee and their decisions will be final.
All offcial paper electronic clocking printouts from each participants clocks and clock paper tapes for manual clocks must be mailed to our race secretary and postmarked within 48 hours of the closing of the race.
