why organisations have to have a race at all costs is beyond me, there is no thought for the welfare of the pigeons,we all want to race but be sencible cheers

The 500 was a no go due to weather. Postponed it a week Then cancelled all together. Young birds postponed a week then "ship at own discretion". weather again. Lot's of guys uptight about the 500. But why the heck brutalise a decent pigeon? High losses people tend to quit all together. Many races end up being tough weather ones. Here and I assume there also. Usually if the birds can see the sun on release, they are let go. Was years back. Weather on the course did not really matter. But again it is up to the fancier to decide whether to ship or not. I have won some tough ones, only day bird etc, but lost quite a number of good ones also. Now a days I am more selective. Young bird misses first race no big deal. 125 to 160 or so does not matter. The birds know the direction of the way back. They do not know the distance so will fly until they get home. JMO.
