When you say loft setting, can you go into more details please as many professional photographers now use a Standard widowhood box situated in their customers lofts and was wondering if this is acceptable?


loft setting I.e could be on a landing board in a box on a perch not in a photo box or a professional photograph

I suggest you have a look at the last show to see old photos :)


Can it be in an aviary

yes as a part of a loft so it is within a loft setting not that of a photobox / professional

As there is a few members on the site that don't keep racing pigeons is there any chance of a class for fancy pigeons


When previously doing these shows there weren't enough show birds to have a class , but if enough pm me with breeds they have I will consider having a fancy bird class or classes :)


I hope I have made it simple and easy to follow any questions feel free to pm me :)

Hows it going ???? well I have to sift through loads of emails to find emails I need . Then I have to further sift through the numerous photo's I've been sent because people can't follow simple instructions only one class is open and I'm receiving emails with multiple classes which balls up the process of downloading one class at a time and saving the photos as you can imagine !!! So if by any chance their is photo's missing that's because that class weren't open grrrrr !!!!!!

Apologises I'm running a little late class 2 will be on as soon as I've sorted it out . The reason I'm late is my grandma died this morning aged 88 . So I've spent today and no doubt a lot of time to come sorting the house and and stuff and the funeral , so please bare with me the show will go on ;)
