This is the scenario - it happened in my own club


Club mate gets a bird from 430 miles but the battery has gone on his ETS system and won't clock the bird in
He comes to you to use your system - at which there is a bird above ready to drop for you...........

Let him time in as he has a bird before you and if you would stop another fancier winning just so you can win then get another hobby ,jmo

remove your clock and put in his one to your base
your bird will still record with his clock in the base
this is if your using unikon ,
by the time you change the clocks and get to your pad
your bird should already be clocked ,
keeping an eye on cem

Bad sportsmanship if you dont let the other person clock in first. How did it go in your club redcheqhen ?

I suppose I didn't 'set the scene' properly, you would have had to run in the path of the landing bird in order to put in the other persons clock - and bird would have had to have gone over the pad thereby putting off the other bird from landing, he waited and clocked his own in first, followed by the other fancier

I'll put it this way, if my clocking system failed and I went to another fancier to time my pigeon in and he/she was in the process of calling in their own pigeon I would stand back until its timed then time my own pigeon in. My misfortune shouldn't impact on someone else's race.

That changes the scenario.

Sorry if you feel we are backward here in Scotland However SHU Race rules No1 states that running time be given at 4mts to the mile be given in circumstances such as those described by you.

Personally myself if my clock failed so be it I'd just enjoy the rest of the race and look forward to the following week I'm not that desperate to win a minor prize each to their own

Once again it would be circumstances as one has a couple of weeks regarding low battery life on the ETS Clock and we all know an old car battery requires charging back and forward so it would be self inflicted and how you get on with your neighbour. Personally I would let him go first as It is good manners and SPORTSMANSHIP.

Let him clock in. He will be entitled to walking distance too. (Time)

The Base - he hadn't charged the car battery up, it also messed up the print off of both parties (but that's another story....)
