Race – Hotspot 5 – Prize Money Results - 2018-01-16

(click to view full size images)

    Hotspot 5 was held on Saturday 13th of January from a shortened distance of 205 km. The daytime temperatures were very high from mid-morning but there was a tail wind. The front pigeons recorded fast velocities and were sited at a higher than normal altitude when diving for the loft. The tail-enders struggled in the heat. Most late pigeons came the second day when it had cooled overnight. They were all in reasonable condition except 3 which were injured by hawks.

    1171 pigeons went to the race.

    126 pigeons arrived in the first 5 minutes of winning bird  (11%)

    685 pigeons arrived in the first 15 minutes  (58%)

    864 pigeons arrived in the first 30min  (74%)

    968 pigeons arrived in the first 1 hour  (83%)

    1015 pigeons arrived in the first 2 hours  (87%)

    When the race was stopped there were 45 pigeons missing  (3.8%)

    We will continue to toss the pigeons every day depending on their condition. There will be a few more online training flights leading up to the final and notifications will be emailed out as usual.
