PostSubject: RPRA and Waldrop.   Tue May 17, 2016 10:27 pm

been without internet over the weekend, I did use my phone to see what was happening, but it isn't the same.......anyway, had a read through a few bhw weeklies and found quite a bit of discussion about the placing of ets pads, different fanciers had different views, but when it comes down to it the rpra do have rules which members must adhere to and if there is any miss understanding the rpra should make it clear what the rules are.

here I come to something which is a surprise, mr waldrop has said he isn't taking sides........... affraid

whats all that about ? a rule is a rule end of story, the rules must state weather the pad is to be in the confines of the loft or not.......whats he getting paid for...?

any views ?

yes me too Darren, will stick with the T3.

thing is, the use of ets is an advantage, but not an unfair advantage as long as the bird has to trap inside of the lofts boundary, once a fancier positions his pad outside the loft where the bird can simply walk over it, without actually entering the loft then it becomes an un fair advantage.....or cheating.

MMMMmmmmmmm Smile Smile "Cheating" Some what harsh I suspect David Wink Wink as at the end of the day people only go by what rule is in place etc where they race. One on one & the first bird home etc I consider it not a big issue, but no man on this earth could put 20 in a manaul clock like what happens with a Electronic clock if they all come together type of thing & that side of it is what concerns me along with having the pad outside the loft as such, which many have down here. cheers

yes that's right knackerd, the rule in place has to be maintained and stuck to...its no good the rpra making rules if they are vague or in accurate .......

placing the pad outside the loft, so it times the bird without entering the loft is, im my opinion cheating.....or at least gaining an un fair advantage, an advantage no T3 user could ever equal.

I understand your point of view David Smile Smile but the issue is more an official issue I believe, than  with how people can interpretate the rule what ever they may be. Now !!!. Putting it in blunt terms  lol! lol! lol! those in charge at the RPRA I suspect, should just pull their finger out etc  Rolling Eyes  Rolling Eyes & clean the whole issue up, so no one has any doubts as to what the rule implys. cheers

yes your right knackered, there shouldn't be an eliment of how people interperate the rules....they should be clearly set out, and if there is confusion our "leader" should earn his wage and set the record straight.

I've been following this on the letters pages of the bhw, there's a lot of controversy about the positioning of the pads, I think the rpra need to nip this in the bud now, get the wording of the rules correct or fanciers using ets will be looking around at each other wondering who is "cheating" and who is putting the pads in the correct place , it seem to have been rumbling on for quite some time now.
