PROBABLY THE BEST ONE LOFT RACE TO BE IN”                       

 

With the growing Interest in what we offer and the friendly way the set up is run we want to offer nothing but the best, this is because the route we fly East to West into Belgium and with the dreaded North sea to cross. The Final race from Ypres in Belgium 268 miles is on a direct line for the birds to try and get home, as the channel is a notorious place for the birds, it is still the biggest challenge for a young bird to fly, the wind is mostly always West and on their nose. We have training and Hot Spot racing along the way and they are exciting for all who enter. The birds will have the best from start to finish, once the basket training and the tosses start, the birds have to prove them selves from day one and they are all equal right from the start. We pride our selves on giving value for money and we try and keep you all up dated as well as we can, we have updates on our web site nearly every day so people can see the progress the birds are making. We now have interest from all over including Europe, and that side of it is growing and the International side is gathering pace nicely. The Final race is as tough as it can get for the young birds, but it is brought to them fairly and they have to show their true colours all the way through, that is why you are sending them to race here, “For the ultimate Test” We have had two hard finals and none worse than 2011, that is why we have moved the lib point, but they will still have the biggest test for a young bird “The Channel”  it can change from nice and peaceful to a blustery headache!  That is the challenge. The health of the birds is Paramount to the lofts and we want all the birds to have the best and to go on to race for you, but for us to start right the birds have to be in good condition from the day they arrive. We have our own intake weaning system in place which works well for us and the birds.  We also vaccinate the birds for PMV, we then monitor the birds progress, and if there is a problem with a bird you have reserves in the loft, and they have been through every thing from the start and hopefully keep you in the race. For the Olympics we want to offer some thing different and we have our ”OLYMPIA CHALLENGE” race to open the games and our Final is to close the games! So we really do want a top race and entries, and hopefully £50,000 could be yours. For a challenge and honest racing come and test your pigeons in Somerset.  Thank you.

       HERE IS THE CHANCE TO WIN £50,000 IN “SOMERSETS OLYMPIA RACE” 2012

              IN THE BIGGEST SPORTING EVENT IN THE WORLD “THE OLYMPICS”                  

As 2012 is Olympic year we are holding a special race year where we want to have the biggest pay out in the UK and even Europe. Our reputation as the fairest set up is offering you the best payout ever, but we need your support to do so. The challenge is for your birds and with the Olympics in England we have the chance to reward them and you for the toughest race, The Olympics are the biggest sporting event in the world so let pigeons be part of it, we pay what we say win or lose! .The Olympics are here to enjoy so let our sport enjoy the best pay out for a fair and tough race. If we had 1200 paid pigeons we promise to pay out £35,000 to the winner, that is the biggest payout in the UK, but if we had 1500 paid pigeons we promise to pay out a massive £50,000 to the winner, the biggest in Europe. To get to these figures we need all the support we can get from every one and your birds stand as much chance as any ones in here as all are treated the same and all are equal. We will be limiting the intake for 2012 as the interest is now gaining pace, as the racing and training progress the birds have to work hard for their perch this is because we want them to get to the final and because of this we are giving you reserves on top of your entries to help cover your team, The excitement that this race generates is brilliant and more people are watching how we do things, we have non pigeon fanciers who just love the racing and are always encouraging there hopefuls, we also run our popular Gold Ring system, £10 per bird and the winner takes all on the Hot Spots good bit of fun, last year we had a Junior league for under 15s and for the first year it proved quite popular we want to see this grow this year and it gave a lot of fun to the children they also had their own prize fund. Another unique thing we do is if you want your young bird back after the final race then you can” free of charge”, as we believe it is your bird and you own it, but if you want we can enter it into our yearling race for the following year, and again if it returns from that Final you can have the bird back free of charge, but if you don’t need it we can auction it as required ,but to us if it finishes the 2 finals then it is one of the best birds in the country by far. Our race is gaining more interest every year as we are the only ones to test the birds over the channel , the entrants want to have that little bit of a challenge with a difference, and that is what we offer. As we have already said for two years we have had difficult finals but we have stayed in Belgium to Ypres 268 miles and a straight line for the birds to cross the channel, and we are sure this is the right way as we have the right temperament and mix in the lofts to make it work and we wish you well in the racing. Please enjoy the racing as we enjoy your birds racing here. This is surly the best test for a pigeon in One Loft racing

The intake of birds is from 4th February to the 30th April 2012
