Welcome to the Breeders Fall Classic
We have moved the race from NC to Ohio. The race will be flown from Columbia Station, Ohio on the Southwest course. We are bringing this race format back by popular demand. As many of you are aware, this was our original format when we started the race 8 years ago. We are returning to our roots, and bringing this popular format back.
4 BIRD LIMIT
1-2 birds = $150 per bird.
3-4 birds = $125 per bird.
The perch fee is non-refundable and must accompany birds when shipped. NO EXCEPTIONS!
$400 entry fee per bird is due after the 100-mile activation toss. To maintain eligibility, ALL birds must be activated 7 days prior to the 150-mile.
All birds that are not paid for by the deadline of one week following the 100-mile Activation Toss will become the property of the BFC.
The BFC reserves the right to take an amount, not to exceed 15%, of the capital prizes for expenses. This percent will be determined on a yearly basis – never to exceed 15%. A completed IRS form W9 will be required if you win over $600.
Reserve your perches now to guarantee a spot
You may only send 4 birds max. The loft capacity is 350 birds. You can pre-pay your Perch Fees to guarantee your spots.
All birds belong to the breeder.
No buy-backs, no auctions.
Any birds not claimed 10 days after the last race become the property of the BFC and can be sold or disposed of at the discretion of the Loft Manager.
No one involved with the BFC will be allowed to enter any birds.
The BFC will not be allowed to breed any birds for entry.
THE LOFT MANAGER RESERVES THE RIGHT TO MAKE ALL FINAL DECISIONS.
All entries will have their 9th and 10th flights pulled.
Birds clocked after midnight, in TOD will be given start time of the next day. Flight time will not be extended due to clocking of bird in TOD.
Time out for darkness: 30 min. after sundown and 30 min. before sunrise. Birds clocked in TOD before midnight will be given end time of Day 1.
Capital prizes paid on the first drop, after that, by Trapping order.
Ties in the clock will be added together and split equally.
If a bird does not clock, due to piggybacking, or clock or chip malfunction, and the BFC can verify the bird was on that drop, it will be given the last place on the drop.
The BFC will not be held responsible for birds lost to unforeseen events.
If 2 or more birds show in the clock as exact ties, prizes will be added up and split equally among the birds that tied.
Arrival of the first pigeon(s) together will be considered the 1st drop and paid equally.
Any pigeon that arrived and does not trap with the first bird(s) will be considered on the drop until another pigeon arrives. All other prizes will be paid by clocking order.
