UP TO THIS POINT WE HAVE HAD 48 TOSSES OF WHICH 17 HAVE BEEN ONLINE PLUS 1 RACE

Up to this point we have had 48 Tosses of which 17 have been online plus 1 Race. The distances will increase from now on with the pigeons well prepared for the series ahead. Anyone who does not have birds in this year’s race can log into our App to follow the races and news with the username Guest and password Guest.

There is still uncertainty around visitor’s ability to travel to attend the final race week. There will be no problem with accommodation however flights may be limited and there is currently a requirement for visitors to go into quarantine upon arrival. Please check with us on the latest situation before buying air tickets.

Terms & Conditions 2021 Race Series

The Terms and Conditions for the 2020 intake for the 2021 Yearling race series have been published and can be viewed on our website under Terms- Forms- English ; https://www.victoriafallswcpr.com/downloads/Terms%20&%20Conditions%202021%20(2020%20intake)%20(English).pdf

At the bottom of this newsflash is a summary of the new terms which are for the coming intake and does not apply to the birds already racing. There have been several changes and we encourage you to familiarise yourself with them for next year.

We have however decided to vary the terms for the up-and-coming Super Ace series where an additional entry fee is payable. It was advertised that there are no credits for lost Super Ace birds during the current series. We have decided to change this and give credits as outlined below. This rule applies to Super Ace this year as well as in 2021.

Should an entrant lose a Super Ace pigeon during racing a credit will be due in the following proportions:

Lost before HS3 (317km) = 100% credit

Lost before HS4 (410km) = 50% credit

Lost before HS5 (475km) = 25% credit

Lost before basketing of Final (600km) = Nil

This credit is for the original entry fee paid but not the additional fee of US$250.

Please take note of the last day for activations or selections for the various competitions as follows;

Thursday 25 June - before Hotspot 2;

Normal Ace competition (normal USD 950 activation fee)

5 bird Team selection (from activated birds)

Knock-out competition (normal USD 950 activation fee)

Thursday 2 July - before Hotspot 3;

Super Ace competition - USD 250 per bird in addition to the normal USD 950 activation fee        

Sunday 19 July - before Hotspot 5;

Grand Averages (normal USD 950 activation fee)

Please note that because of tight deadlines in administration the date and times will be strictly followed. It may be prudent to activate in advance if it is your intention to do so, to prevent a last-minute rush or possible exclusion from the competitions. 

Best Regards,

The Victoria Falls Team

INVITED DONATED BIRDS - 2020 SEASON DISTRIBUTION OF INVITED DONATED BIRDS AND OTHER FOR SALE PIGEONS

Invited Donated Birds - 2020 Season

DISTRIBUTION OF INVITED DONATED BIRDS AND OTHER FOR SALE PIGEONS

 

We are pleased to announce that we have had an overwhelming response from people wanting to purchase Invited Donated birds to participate in the race series.

One of the main purposes in having donated birds is to raise money for the Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust. Funds are desperately needed to ensure our wildlife is protected and every dollar helps. We raise money for them from donations received in the Venture Racers scheme and from some of the sale proceeds of winning Venture pigeons. You can visit the Trust site at www.vicfallswildlifetrust.org

 

We are extremely grateful for the donations and want to thank the Donors for their kind gesture. The pigeons come from some of the most famous fanciers in the world and are of a high standard. The breeders of donated pigeons are listed below in no particular order.

 

Ado Family Loft                                   United States

Andre Leideman                                  Netherlands

Dirk Deroose                                       Belgium

Frank McLaughlin                               United States

Ganus Family Loft                               United States

Jason Brown                                        Zimbabwe

Karl-Heinz & Timo Wagner                 Germany

Ken Easley                                           United States

Lambrecht Stefaan                              Belgium

To ensure we maximise the opportunity through the Venture Racer scheme for the Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust and to be fair to all wanting these pigeons we have implemented the following;

 

  1. Any person may request to purchase any number of invited Donated pigeons from those available (those that say “Donor..” in the name of the For Sale bird).
  2. There will be only one request accepted per bird from each person.
  3. Requests must be made by email to admin@victoriafallswcpr.com
  4. Email offers must be received before 12 noon CAT on Tuesday 16th June stating the pigeon number and the amount offered for it in USD. This information will remain confidential and not divulged to anyone until announced.
  5. The minimum amount is USD 950. All money over and above the entry fee of USD 950 will accrue to Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust as a donation.
  6. The successful purchaser will be the person who made the highest offer for a bird and will be required to pay within 24 hours of notification. Race accounts will be automatically debited if there are sufficient funds. If funds are not received the bird will go to the next highest purchase offer.
  7. The successful purchaser will be shown on the website on the basketing list for Hotspot 1 (scheduled for 20th June). Any person may enquire as to the amount donated to the Wildlife Trust for a particular bird by sending an email to admin@victoriafallswcpr.com
  8. Donor pigeons are sold without reserves, however if one of these pigeons is lost before the basketing for Hotspot 3 the purchaser may select any other “For Sale” bird from those available at no additional cost. If none are available, then a credit will be given for use on other activations or bonus races (pooling) or carried over for use the next year. The credit will be limited to the activation fee of USD 950 and will not include the amount donated. There are no replacements or credits offered for losses after the basketing for Hotspot 3 (317km).
  9. Any Donor pigeons not bought with the additional donation will be offered for sale as per the terms outlined in point 10 below.
  10. All pigeons that are marked “For Sale” which are not “Donor” birds are available from now at USD 950 each on a first come first served basis. This must be booked by email to admin@victoriafallswcpr.com and once confirmed must be paid for within 24 hours. Unfortunately, there are no reserves offered as we have insufficient numbers to satisfy the demand. If the selected pigeon is lost before the basketing for Hotspot 3 the purchaser may select any other “For Sale” bird from those available at no additional cost. If none are available, then a credit will be given for use on other activations or bonus races (pooling) or carried over for use the next year.
  11. Any For Sale pigeon purchased after Hotspot 3 (317km) is sold without reserves and no credit or replacements are offered if lost.
  12. We give no guarantee of the ability of any of these pigeons to perform well, or survive the race series, and by making a purchase the buyer acknowledges and accepts this.

 

Best Regards,
