    Race fees for the year 2004: $100.- / bird to be paid no later than March 31, 2004. 100% of your entry fees are returned to you as prize money. There are perch fees of $25.- / bird. The birds competing will be those who are remaining from 2003 plus a few late bred youngsters sent in by some fanciers. All birds entered become the property of Sportsman's Open R.P.O. except those bought back for an additional $50.- at the time of shipping. Return shipping expenses are the owner's responsibility! All other birds finishing the race program will be auctioned off to the highest bidder right here on this site. The proceeds of this auction will be used entirely to cover the costs of organizing and conducting this race program. All fees paid are non- refundable in case of the loss of the entry regardless of the circumstances surrounding this loss. While visitors on race days are welcome, direct access to the birds cannot be permitted to anyone until the final auction. Updated results will be published here within a few hours after each race is closed .

    To summarize, the birds fly to one loft, are timed in with an electronic "Tauris" timer and graded according to the total time used in all 4 races.

    Race schedule for the year 2004:

    June 06, 2004: ca. 3 hours on the wing
    June 13, 2004: ca. 5 hours on the wing
    June 20, 2004: ca. 7 hours on the wing
    July 04, 2004: ca. 9 hours on the wing

    The race direction is from the SE, which generally makes this a head wind course. The race dates are tentative at best as birds will not be liberated into unsuitable weather. The race distance to any of these races may also be increased due to tail winds or decreased due to strong head winds. We are trying to make this a long distance series and would like to have the birds work for ca. 7 to 9 hours in the last two races. "Timeout" for the night is defined as the time between 1 hour after sunset and 1 hour before sunrise.

    **the bird which required the least time to fly all 4 races

    All races are considered one day races unless, in the opinion of the race organizer, not enough birds return on race day.
