Agree entirely George.

Anyone not at the loft to great their entries for as long as is reasonable should not keep pigeons, with no excuses.

It was introduced both without fancier's consent,against the rules and against fair play and against the law.

But then you are talking RPRA Council.

Proved there was no obligation re the handicapt to introduce it ( the reason given by the RPRA) wrote to the appropriate Government department who confirmed we were under no obligation to introduce it and sent the reply to the then General Manager, thanked me and the Council took no notice.

If someone in a big race was beaten by decimals the other fancier using a ETS and him/her a race rubber method he/she would have good grounds for an objection on grounds of unfair advantage and think the Law would uphold it.

Every other sport I can think of have made improvements for all concerned our lot have just about killed the sport.

Regards.

i always said this darren about the pad being outside the loft, it shouldnt be allowed, regardless of what rpra rules say .........having the pad outside and even using ets gives the fancier an advantage over the t3 user.

i do think the ets is a good thing for disabled fanciers though .

Cowboy type country David Smile Smile I'm affraid the way I see the general pad/antenna set up etc. Just in the short time I've had mine in operation here bounce bounce I've seen many walk on it & then back away, before finely going through the trap as such with it before the trap entrance here, but well within what the local regulations down here permit as such. Now Very Happy Very Happy a test of sorts lol! lol! lol! for all Benzing experts as such watching bounce bounce see maybe Very Happy Very Happy how you would perhaps go Wink Wink trying to put rings, from 1998 to 2009 etc in your fancy electronic clock etc Wink Wink & perhaps one may just learn something a bit odd somewhat to normal I somehow suspect/suggest  Wink  Wink. cheers

The OL events show that the first bird back does not always get the first place, nor any subsequent arrivals get their arrival position in many cases.

Would prefer the landing board to be the active part.

Would not be feasible to have OL races using any other method.

Necessary evil now Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes these days I'm affraid O/S Smile Smile from my perspective. Back in my old ways here as you know Wink Wink Monday here first toss etc as normal, when back when Very Happy Very Happy 12 miles. Never knew how long as such bounce bounce in all the years I've been going there that they took to first reach home. Now know to the very second as such now (Thanks, Mr Benzing) Very Happy  Very Happy as first off on Monday there they actually took 21 minutes & 4 seconds apparently which was well before I arrived home to wonder in the old days how long they may have just taking to complete the journey in general. Grumble we may Smile Smile but for someone Very Happy Very Happy who first started off Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes running to the local railway station, with a rubber in his mouth type thing to find a winner of sorts down here, because no one then had clocks being all kids in nature Very Happy Very Happy I could suggest maybe lol! lol! lol! thou evil perhaps to some, we have fortunately if honest advanced somewhat thankfully with the modern ways now in general on average in using electronic type clocks, even if not quite perfect in certain folks minds by my experience. cheers alien flower afro

that system may be ok for one lofts misty, but i think when its club racing and some have the pad outside and some have it within the confines of the loft it is giving an un fair advantage......

they might as well have the pad on the house roof ......

That was my point David, OK for OLs but not for club racing.

Actually the whole present system stinks for several reasons.

Went into the whole scenario oldstrain many years ago.

Pointed out that not one can be certain that any distance is correct, could be yards adrift yet race in theory could be won by .01 of a yard.

In a 60 mile race flown at 60 miles an hour would mean the winner, if all flew 60 miles by 2" and 500th of a second.

Does not mean it is very unlikely it means the formula is flawed because it COULD happen under the system.

Remember shortly after new measurements were taken under a new system many results would have been different if previous races had been re-calculated.

Most laughable part, the transporters do not know the exact place the measurements were calculated from, so the probability is EVERY DISTANCE USED IS YARDS ADRIFT.

Yet they can send men to the moon.

That is exactly what I said David, the only way in a OL unfair in any other race
irrespective of where the pad is.

What I cannot understand is why anyone wants to cheat in the first place.

They may not be found out but they know themselves they are cheats.

Some fanciers take great pride in their pigeons regardless of anything else.

There are more races etc; won by advantage than anything else.

If a fancier is proud of his pigeons why not show them off, irrespective of any other consideration.

Jealousy is a contributary factor regarding some fanciers.

Quite frankly George Smile Smile I'm affraid the blokes simply up himself etc bounce bounce what one has to do with the other has little to do if one just plainly enjoys posting photos of ones birds as such.
