(Reservations for the birds to be shipped May 31st, 2006)
All birds entered become the property of the Alberta Classic Derby except those bought back for an additional $50.- at the time of shipping. Surviving
"buy-backs" will be returned to the owner upon completion of the race schedule (1 hr & 2 hrs & 3 hrs & 3 hrs & 4 hrs & 10 hrs on the wing). Return shipping
expenses are the owner's responsibility.
All (i.e. 100%) entry fees are returned to you as prize money in a 30% 20%
10% 10% 5% 5% 5% 5% 5% 5% split for the ace birds.
If we lose your bird before the final race (10 hrs on the wing) you get a full refund of the entry and perch fee of $150.-,
provided such loss is not due to PMV.
No bird should contact PMV as it is each owner's responsibility to vaccinate each bird when it is 26 days old. 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 6 races.
Major changes were made to the Alberta Classic Derby for the year 2006:
The perch fee will be $50.- / bird
Entry fees will be $100.-/bird
Birds will only be accepted on May 31st, 2006 - NO exceptions!
All entry and perch fees will need to accompany the birds. Any birds arriving without their entry and perch fees will need to be destroyed.
The best schedule would be:
Pair up around March 18th so that the birds lay approximately on March 28th.
Vaccinate the young birds against PMV when they are 26 days old (May 14th), at least 2 days before weaning.
Wean the young ones
when they are 4 weeks old (May 16th).
Ship the youngsters to arrive neither before nor after but
on May 31st.
Ship the birds and include the fees of $150.- per bird.
Do NOT ship a bird that has already
dropped its second flight. It will be too old to participate.
In order to encourage foreign participation, any participant can have his/her entries bred
by any Canadian fancier.
The above rules are for the benefit of your birds and you.
