Congratulations to today’s winners at Race 1 from 136km.
Well done Bob Stukel finishing 1st, 11th and 12th having 3 of the first 16 arriving at the loft, just a minute ahead of the next 5 birds.
Todd Pasfield, The Coop & Dave Chaffer all supporting the GC50000 this year with teams provided by Jason Hudson, finishing 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, with The Coop also taking 9th.
5th Shane Queissner, 6th & 7th Winkypop Lofts, 8th Peter Matic Lofts and 10th Gurnayville Lofts all so close to taking out the top prize.
After the first 16 and then 5 birds there was a 7 minute wait for the next 3 birds, a further 8 minute wait for a single bird, it was becoming clear that the birds had encountered some difficulties with just 158 birds home within an hour of the winners, and just 270 home within 2 hours of the winners. Many birds and particularly groups were seen arriving from the south-east as well as the south-west, despite others still arriving from a northerly direction. By night fall there were 359 back home safely with more returning in the morning I’m sure.
With birds being seriously spread out today including most training runs so far, Ace Pigeons is spread out very early like no other year before.
The front runner at this point owned by Winkypop Lofts is clear of 2nd placed bird owned by Peter Matic Lofts by 3 minutes which is 9 minutes ahead of 3rd place to this point owned by Steve Maccoll last years Final winner.
Within 24 minutes of first place there are just 11 birds including the leader but with a long way to go, much can change.
Race 2 is scheduled for the upcoming Sunday in 7 days so spares payments will be due for payment Tuesday this week. You can use today’s Race results to work out how many birds require activating at $110.00, but messages will be sent out hopefully by late Monday night.
There are still a small number of spares for sale, home today, available at $350.00 each, all bred by Jason Hudson, breeder of 2nd, 3rd and 4th today.
A kind of magic
