    The pigeons at Victoria Falls are exercising well, climbing high and ranging. Groups are being sighted during their daily exercise a few kilometers from the loft. The daytime temperatures are still very high, around 35 degrees Celsius. We will start road training as soon as the weather cools off a bit.

    The terms and conditions for this years’ new intake for the 2020 race season will have some changes which will be published after the final race this season.

    In summary the main changes are as follows;

    • The entry fee per pigeon for 10 or more pigeons all paid for on time will be $850 per bird with no reserves but lost birds will earn a credit for the following year, as per the existing terms.
    • A team of 5 birds with partial activation will remain at $950 per activation.
    • The final race will be from approximately 650 km (400 miles).
    • The final will take place on Friday 7th of August 2020.
    • Best overall pigeon will be calculated on all training tosses and races over 100km.
    • A team competition will be introduced.
    • A knock-out competition will be introduced.
