Good evening everyone. Aug. 23, we had the 4th race from 175 miles.
The weather was cool at release with a light side tail wind. The birds cleared very quickly and it was a great race. Congratulations to Flood Lofts for winning 1st prize with the same incredible bird that also won the 3rd race from 150 miles and this bird is now leading champion bird after the first 4 races !!
Stay tuned for more updates.

Tony Alves.

Hello everyone, September 2nd.
There are now 55 birds home on the second day.
Another One Loft Race was also released close to where our birds were released half an hour later with over 500 birds and also had no day birds and has only clocked 2 birds home starting around 4 PM at the end of the second day. It is hard to explain what exactly pigeons do on certain days and September 1st. was one of those days. It has been a real test of endurance.
It takes extremely well conditioned birds with super drive to continue to keep coming on a second day. No One loft Race organizers sets out to loose birds, and it is something that just can not be explained.
The race will continue until all prizes are filled ! We will update tomorrow with details of the winners !!

The K-Factor was high (Red) reported by NOAA for Sept 1st & 2nd.....For people who don`t beleive in this,you better learn...You will lose GREAT pigeons,when the K-Factor is shown in RED and Dark Blue...If Dark Blue,it is warned NOT to race or train your pigeons....Red means you will and can lose many birds,especially YB`s......Alamo

Hello everyone. There are 74 birds clocked in. We will keep clocking until the 100 prizes are filled.
The next 325 mile race is going to be delayed possibly another 2 weeks or so until the birds are in perfect condition again. Although the birds flew hard and long they still are holding good bodies due to being very well conditioned before the flight.
We will keep updating steady as we move on !! Best of luck as we go into the longer races !!

Good evening everyone, there are now 92 birds home and hopefully we will have 100 birds by tomorrow night to fill all 100 prizes.
It is surprising how most of the late arrivals are still holding good bodies. The birds were sent in very good condition with lots of reserve, and we believe this has paid off as they continue to come home. As of now it looks like our next race will be at least 2 weeks or more so we can bring super condition back into the birds. We are sure by the condition they have now that we will have them perfect in a couple of weeks. We will report back tomorrow.

Good evening every one, Friday September 6th. We now have a 100 birds home and the prizes are all filled.
This year was an extremely tough year, finishing off the 300 mile race with the toughest race in recent memory. We are still very happy that we had 25 % of the birds return and it surely took very determined pigeons with super endurance to continue on for days ! Some great performances were achieved by some lofts. One of these great team performances was accomplished by PRO.PIGEON.COM TEAM from the USA who clocked an incredible 3 pigeons in the top 100 prizes from a total of 4 birds shipped scoring 30th, 44th, 45th, positions all on the second day. Another great performance was the" BET TO WIN TEAM " a syndicate of fanciers from the Borden club, which are members of our local Up North pigeon Racing Combine. They also managed to clock 3 birds in the top 100 positions from a total of 4 birds shipped, scoring 21st , 67th , 85th positions.

Good evening everyone, we continue to have birds return home.
We will do an inventory list in the next few days of all birds home. Our next race was scheduled for 325 miles, but since the final race was flown from 250 miles, we believe it might be best that the next race be flown from 300 miles so the jump is not so big. We plan to have the next race in 8 to 10 days from now weather permitting. Then we will try to fly the 350 mile race a week or so later and then on to the final race of 375 miles to complete our series. All pigeons that are in capable shape will be shipped to the next race. You can select to have any or all of of your birds activated at 100 Dollars per bird to be flown for prize money which will be paid at 10% down. However if you choose not to activate your bird it will still be shipped to fly the race but will not be eligible for prize money, but still counts for the championship prizes. If you would like your bird activated you must e-mail us the band numbers of the birds you choose and payment must be received by the end of Monday September 16th.
If you have won prize money it can be deducted from your winnings of the 250 mile race. We will then show a list of all paid birds so that there is no question if or what birds were activated. We do not cut any of this prize money, it is 100 % paid out. However if payment is not received your bird will not be eligible for prize money. So please e-mail us your entries and we will email you back information of received. Next year we will come up with an easier way to activate the birds as to make it easy for everyone. If mailing from the USA it is best to send your payment express.
The birds are being nourished back into condition and will be ready for some training tosses shortly.

Good evening everyone, we have put out an inventory list of all birds back from the last race.
Please email us your band numbers and team names if you want to activate your birds into the next race, payment must be here by September 16th. If you choose not to activate, your birds will still be flown in the next race but you will not qualify for prize money however you birds still qualify for championship prizes. Next race is planned for sometime in the middle of next week, weather permitting. We will update soon.

Hello everyone. The birds are loft flying again up to an hour in the mornings and we are going to try to have the race from 300 miles on Monday (Sept 16th.) if the weather is good. Please do not forget to email -us RIGHT AWAY if you would like to activate your birds for prize money. This next race is 100 % pay-out in prize money and we do not take any cut from this money.
We are sure that many birds will surprise everyone with their performance on the next race even if they were clocked later in the last race and some will regret not activating their birds, but it is your choice and the birds will be shipped even if it is not activated. Once the birds are shipped you will not be activate them and we will put out a list of the activated birds ahead of time. It will be interesting to see as now we get into the longer races. Best of luck !

Tony Alves.

Good evening everyone.
There are now 87 birds home and we will continue to clock birds as the birds can still earn points for the championships.
The birds are in fantastic condition and the race took nothing out of them, as a matter of fact many of the birds over flew the loft as most birds that arrived after the 29th position were returning from the south.
We are planning the next race for sometime next week, from Cochrane Ontario a distance of 350 miles.
We will put out an inventory list in a few days. If you would like to activate any or all of your birds at $100 Dollars each you must e-mail us right away, before Sunday September 22nd. This is the best way to confirm your birds are entered.
We take no cut out of this money and all prizes are 100 % paid out. We will put out a list again of all activated birds before the race. Best of luck.

Tony Alves.

Hello everyone. We have a new inventory list posted of all capable birds to fly the 350 mile race. We are planning for a Tuesday race from Cochrane Ont. Please check the inventory list and let us know right away by email if you want any birds activated for $100. We need to know as soon as possible as we need to post a list of all activated birds and prize list before the race.
Thanks and good luck.

Hello everyone.
Tuesdays race was very nerve racking as the first 9 birds arrived together, but the clock did not pick the birds times as they arrived. We quickly sectioned of the first 9 birds. The next group of 4 birds were sectioned off, and then the next 3 birds were sectioned also. We therefore had to re-clock these pigeons in the order of groups that they arrived and must count these birds equal by drops. All prize money will be added from activated birds by group drops and divided equally as this is the most fairest way to pay the prize money. From 17th. position down the birds are clocked in order of arrival. Tomorrow night we will post the prize winners. The point system will also have to be looked at as we come up with the most fairest way to award this.
These are some of the nightmares that every one loft race manager dreads, we will have more information tomorrow night.
All drops were verified by Rolf Bachmann who is the appointed FCI DELEGATE for the Canadian International One Loft Race and Ken Foster who is a participant in the race was also present to assist with a quick response to this unforeseen circumstance. The race will continue tomorrow as we hope to have many more birds arrive.

Tony Alves.
