2014-15 Breeders Plate Prizes

 

 

The Entry Form and Rules for the 2015-16 Breeders Plate is now available and can be downloaded from here.

 

 

Please read the rules carefully!!

 

 

Based on feedback from fliers, rule (10), related to squeakers having dropped one flight, has been relaxed (a little) - for Buybacks only.

 

 

Also note that the rule (15) where fliers must provide accurate feedback, within 2 weeks of bird lists being issued by the committee will be enforced in 2016. If fliers are not willing to make the effort to check their lists, in a timely manner, then the committee is not willing to accept any changes after the cutoff. Any bird presented for basketing that does not match the closed-off list will be disqualified. No exceptions!

 

 

An additional rule (18) has been added for the culling of breeders' birds and re-using the ring. In the best interest of breeders, participants and the race, a harsh penalty has been introduced for anyone found to be in breach of this and other rules.
