I am getting my breedings together for next year and most of them will be new pairings. I am looking for "working man" futuries and band races, you know the ones I don't have to take out a second mortage on my house to enter. If you know of any and/or the handler for one please inbox me the information.

I would like to see people respond to the thread because myself and probably others would like this information as well.

Two breeders races that I participated in this year were both featured in threads on this forum. The LBRA and IRPC, see the threads by those names for more information.

Does not the:
1. AU have information about these?

2. I think in your local club in your area, the President normally give you information regarding member flyers where you can send your breeding. Arrangements vary as to how the fees are handled so as to test your birds, and or what to do with your birds after the YB and OB race season .

If I understand the question correctly, I would think its a win win situation where a handler need not buy the birds, just to train and feed. Breeder paying for club level entry, in return learning a lot from acquired pair whether to continue or end such combination, before entering high level OLR.

Hopefully a database exist across the country with different terrains that mirrors big time OLR within the country and outside.

The Twin Cities Concourse has a gold band race . You can buy bands for $25.00 each , pick your handler and this past year they had in 2015 $10,000 paid out in prize money. My friend has won some money a couple of times so its been a good race for not that much cost .

Student vs Teacher Race

I intend to fly this race this year. Several guys I know have been flying for several years. It's 4 birds for $150. You fly a 100-150-200-250 mile race series and for $10 extra your bird(s) can fly the Queen City Band Race (300 miles).
