Good evening everyone,
Rick and I want to thank everyone for their patience over the last few weeks and we want to let everyone know the payouts are coming!
We have written the cheques and they will be dispersed very shortly.
We have overcome some personal family issues over the last few weeks and want to apologize to everyone waiting as we work through this thing called life!
Again thank you for your understanding and we look forward to sharing with you our plans for next year's 3rd Annual Niagara Peninsula One Loft Race!
Have a wonderful weekend,
Jeane (& Rick)
Terry Wintle of Welland, ON
Saturday OCT 6th, 2018 Hamilton Central Clubhouse 414 Highland Road East Hamilton Ontario Birds on display starting at 10:00 am. Auction starts at noon.
Those of us that have been around the sport for any length of time know the name Terry Wintle. Many of us were privileged to know him personally, and call him a friend. What we know for sure is that Terry travelled north America and loved to attend auctions. He also loved to buy high quality racing pigeons. With his passing, Terry’s legacy of high calibre racing pigeons must be passed along to the fancy. We arranged to share his flying birds in the spring, when his health was failing and this auction completes the sad reality with the total sale of his intact stock loft. These birds have not been picked over. This is the entire, intact Wintle collection. 34 cocks and 24 hens.
Those of us that knew Terry, also knew that his record keeping left a lot to be desired. I gathered up all his pedigrees from purchased birds and those I could match up with birds will be at the sale. Not every bird will have a pedigree.
There will be direct birds from: • Dudley loft – Mona Lisa lines • Manuel Rodriguez – El Gallo Loft • Tony Alves • Nettis Family Loft New Jersey • Kirby Harrold Kripple Kreek Loft • Guido Madrusan • Mike Welch GHC • 3D Lofts of Texas • Barry Yu • Robert Gonzalez MagicMakerLoft Florida
This will be a real golden opportunity to acquire a key breeder at a fraction of its value. Plan to attend. It will be a good one.

Well Saturday was a great day for a race, with a big jump for the birds and in a different direction than they were used to. We were shocked and pleased to see 5 on the drop.
As for picking up your birds:
Rick will be at the Hamilton Pigeon Club on Saturday, October 6th for the Terry Wintle Auction with all of the birds on site.
Rick will be at our loft on Sunday, October 7th from 10am - 1pm & Wednesday, October 10th from 10am - 1pm.
Any birds not picked up by the last dated noted, will become property of Niagara Peninsula OLR.
Please contact Rick at 905-329-5139 or email us at email@example.com to confirm your pick up or ask questions if your bird(s) is/are still here.
As for payouts, we are still awaiting confirmation of results from the Engelhart race. Payouts from both races, that have not already been paid, will be distributed shortly.
Thanks to all,
The birds were up this morning at 8:10am
There were some clouds (as we saw on the instragram feed this morning). Here, there is sun and clouds and some wind coming from the northwest.
We're hoping the birds should be in anytime after 3pm...we're hoping!
Good luck everyone!
After an hour and a half of typing and organizing the list in the update message board...it timed out and wiped the work right out.
So needless to say - I've taken a picture of the basket list that printed from our module last night when we logged them all in.
Check out the GALLERY tab at the top of the website for the entire list of birds that have been shipped.
I apologize that I wasn't able to print them with the loft names beside them.
There are 71 birds in total going to the race.
Again, we want to wish everyone good luck!
Thanks,Jeane & Rick
I am posting a basket list under the next message I post (in updates section as well)
The module is loaded and I don't want to mess with the module here on in.
72 are waiting for the release in the morning...good luck to everyone!
Cheers,Jeane & Rick
Rick and I got our act together and we managed to get this inventory up for you tonight!
Take a peek, and have a great night!
Our apologies with the results not being posted, it was a miscommunication with myself and Rick - as he assumed I had pulled the results on Sunday night - and he cleared the clock yesterday. With me having a cold/flu for the last few days - our house has not been quite organized to say the least!
There will be an inventory done and posted tonight - I will ensure it gets done!
As for the payouts for the Niagara Peninsula OLR / Engelhart race, here they are:
1st Place : $2,250
2nd Place : $1,200
3rd Place : $750
4th Place : $550
5th Place : $400
6th & 7th Places : $250
8th, 9th, & 10th Places : $200

Enjoy your day!
