You are correct in my View, i have not been to one in years but they drew buyers/Sellers from Wis. and all over. their auction races were something.
They sponsored some great special races.... Dave

Fox Valley combine's last auction will be on 4/19/09 at noon in Johnsburg, Il. This is the 4th of 4 auctions. I have attended all and entered birds every auction. Chicago Combine I believe has already ended theirs and the Month of Sundays (Rock River Valley) ended in March. Here is a link to the Fox Valley Combine web site for more info on upcoming auction. http://foxvalleycombine.org/3.shtml

Well it has been a while, For special races, local and out of area Flyers put birds up for special races, (Young Birds) the buyer flies the bird in the special race and there is a split of the Winnings, Pools, ect. between the breeder, and the racer.After the race the young birds are Auctioned again, and anyone can bide on them. Again, it has been a while so i might have missed something. Dave

You are right. But the west side Club has/had members from all surrounding Suburbs. I am twenty miles from the city line and was a member... some of the best flyers, are not in the City itself. SO.... How long you been married? LOL!;) Dave

Here is how it works---
Out of area breeders pay 25.00 for each bird to be entered into the auction.
The bird gets in the auction and a member of that club/combine purchases the bird to fly. The flyer flies the bird and if it is in the "money" the breeder and the flyer split the winnings. If it places in the top 20 then the bird gets auctioned off at the end of the race and anyone can purchase this bird. Top bird last year went for over 1500.00.
Or, if you have no birds, you can attend the auction, purchase a bird of someone elses and place it in a loft of your choice and split with the flyer.

Hey we are not all like OBAMA.
No you dont have to ship the pedigree at any point. I definately would not ship one prior to the end of the auction race itself.

The only difference between Chicago Crooks and the rest of the country, is we are STARTING to CATCH ours....... We are ahead of the curve so to speak.
Every city, and state in this country has the same problem, I.E. past Gov. of Alaska? who would have thought... I do not want to start anything here... BUT Obama is OUR President, and inherited a mess beyond compare.
If there is a man alive in this country that can get us back on track, it is HIM.
Forget political parts and support the only HOPE we have. JMVHO Dave
P.S. So you think Obama is a crook?

Dave, I am not going to abuse this forum with what I have to say. I just hope I am wrong and you are right but I doubt it. I hope you can say in 12 months or to your g-children you are happy with your president because he certainly isn't mine. I am not a socialist nor will I ever be.

Sorry i like my president, look up the true meaning of socialism. he is not a Socialist, just trying to Correct the problems of a near sighted, past administration. If caring about the Average American, is Socialism, So be it!
Why are so many americans feeling threatened by Him? Is it because he is Intelligent, or is it because he is Black? ;)

I did look up the definition. Spreading the wealth to non working individuals is Socialism. Taking my money and giving it to people who wont get off their duffs is socialism. Americans are smart and this is why they are seeing thru him.

What are the polls now? Everyone is entitled to make a mistake but you must learn from them. Why dont we leave this alone on here and you can feel free to debate me in person or by phone.
