The birds will be darkened and loft darkening will start 2 weeks following last date of delivery of birds.
All birds will be vaccinated against PMV and Paratyphoid upon arrival at the loft.
All training flights and races will be posted on the Niagara Peninsula One Loft Race website.
All birds will receive a chip ring upon arrival and the ring will be programed following the final date of delivery in May.
All fees, once paid, are non-refundable, unless no birds are clocked in race time.
Should sufficient birds fail to return in race time to close out the prizes, the unclaimed prize money will be paid-out proportionally to the birds that clocked in race time. Should no birds clock in race time, 100% of the entry fees (excluding perch fees and cost of mailing) will be refunded.
All positions will be paid based on clocking order (no drops). In the event of a dead heat (tie) the prizes for the tied positions will be added together and divided by the number of tied birds.
Birds will be received during two discreet 9-day windows:
Saturday, April 13th, 2019 until Sunday, April 21st, 2019
Saturday May 4th, 2019 until Sunday May 12th, 2019
This allows 18 days including 4 separate weekends for delivering the birds
The first date is for the earlier breeders and is from April 13th, 2019 until April 21st, 2019.
The second window, for those wishing to breed later, or to ship slightly older birds, will be from May 4th, 2019 until May 12th, 2019.
Please plan to have your birds ready for delivery during one of these time periods. Contact Rick Fyfe (905-329-5139) to arrange delivery to the loft or for airport pick-up.
Breeders may arrange to have their birds picked up at the loft following the race. Unclaimed birds will become the property of the Niagara Peninsula One Loft Race if pick-up arrangements have not been finalized by October 14th, 2019.
All birds must be banded with an approved 2019 seamless life band.
Both races are designated as two-day races. The race will close once all the prizes have been won, or one half hour after sunset on day two, which ever comes first.
Any disputes will be decided by Rick and Jeane Fyfe with advice from the Race Advisory Committee.
