(TO BE HELD IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE BAMFORDS OLD BIRD CHANNEL CHALLENGE RACE 2008)
Old Lodge HS already organise The Bamfords Old Bird Channel Challenge (see below for details of the 2007 race) an Old Bird race for previous years Bamford Gold Ring pigeons that is large, open to the whole of the North West (as per rules) and financially rewarding. But after talking to numerous Fanciers that compete in the Bamfords Gold Ring Races the general consensus was that there was a need to develop the Old Bird Race further in a similar vein as the Young Bird Spectacular. Therefore the idea was looked at by Old Lodge HS and they are proud to now give Fanciers not one but three bites at the cherry. Entry into the Bamfords Platinum Yearling Race is priced at £10 with a maximum entry of two per loft. The entry fee of £10 or £20 is payable when ordering your 2007 Bamford Rings. Prize money generated will be split 40% Open and 60% Section with again section prize money being split pro rata entries in the respective sections. Bamford ring numbers of the yearlings to be entered only need to be declared on the marking night of the 2008 race giving you every opportunity to compete. These yearlings can be double banked into the Bamfords Old Bird Channel Challenge 2008 by paying that race entry fee if the Fancier wishes. It is hoped that this race will encourage Fanciers who do not particularly concentrate on young bird racing to take the plunge in now having Bamfords 2007 rings safe in the knowledge that they can compete in the old bird races. As ring orders are being received for the 2007 race it is clear to see that this initiative has been received well by the Fancy with many competitors entering the Platinum Yearling Race.
