List of 2012 Special/Money Races


Hi everyone! I would like to compile a list of futurity races, auction races, band races, etc from ya'lls clubs, combines, or any others you may know of. Post all the information you have on each race and I will list them in the original post as a quick reference. This way we can all promote our club/combine special races and you may find one you want to send birds to this year!

I'm debating on whether to add One Loft races to the list or make a separate thread for those (since there are so many and they are a different category from these). What do you guys think?


Auction Races:
  • TRC YB Auction Race. Will have more details soon. Expect Auction date to be late April, so have birds or cards ready by then. Buyers can bid on the cards with the birds' information and you can ship them to the person when they are ready. The Auction race will be the first 200 mile race of the season as a separate release. The breeder of the winning bird usually gets $100. I will update this when we set everything in stone (probably this Saturday's meeting).
  • IRPC Auction Races. Details here.
  • 4th Annual Auction Band Race - Hosted by the Marion County Racing Pigeon Club. Details here.
  • LBR Auction Race. Details here.
Band Races:
  • TRC Powderpuff Derby. Bands are $10 each. I will update with prize money amounts. The race will be the second 200 mile race of the season.
  • North Florida Pigeon Racing Combine - GOLD BAND RACE. More details here.
  • The Walter Zebrowski Memorial Band Race. Details here.

Futurity Races:
  • Dixie Southern Convention and Race. Details here.
  • Great South Bay Classic. Details here.
One Loft Races:
  • 2012 HRP CLASSIC ONE LOFT RACE. Details here.
  • Buckeye Challenge One-Loft Race. Details here.
  • 2nd Annual White Dove Classic & Grizzle Race. Details here.
  • America's International Challenge. Details here.
  • High Plains Classic. Details here.
  • Sac Classic One Loft Race. Details here.
  • Pacific Northwest Challenge One Loft Race. Details here.
  • For more One-loft races, go here.
  • List of MANY One-Loft races found here.

IRPC Auction races...There will be 2 Auction races....What the IRPC does is divide the total money from the sale of the birds in half....And that money is paid out in the two races to the top 6 birds...The IRPC takes 10% of the total dollars taken in,and the 90% is paid out.....The split is 50/50 Handler/Breeder....The cost to the Breeder is (NOTHING).....You send the birds to us,and we buy & fly them....Ofcourse,the birds become the property of the buyer/handler....The Auction date is May 20th.......The Auction is at the Cumberland Md Club....OOA birds are welcome,and they can be shipped in to one of our Combine officers,or even me,the week of the Auction...If you live near the Auction club,you can bring your birds there in person...But only IRPC combine lofts/members can fly/buy the birds.....Usally there is between $4,500 to $6,000 Total spent on the birds....That amount is split in half for the 2 Auction Races...1st place usally between $600 to $900 for each race...After the Auction,whatever $$ are taken in,it is SPLIT in HALF....That money is what is paid out as winning shares...Winning shares are 30% to winner...20% to 2nd place...10% to 3rd to 6th place birds for EACH RACE !!......Alamo

Auction Date Confirmed !!Send birds the week of May 20th ONLY !!!

We've got The Great South Bay Classic and the LBRA the info is on the thread I linked below or on my clubs website WWW.LINDENHURSTHPC.COM

http://www.pigeons.biz/forums/f14/a-...ion-58530.html

We've also have our club auction race which is like a smaller LBRA race where you can send as many birds as you'd like with your own bands. The fliers for the LBRA and Club Auction on the site are from last year I've been too lazy to make new ones and update the site but I'll get around to it eventually.
