The Cost Of Racing


Recommended Posts

65p per bird inland and non-combine race - and that is not profit making - it is what we get charged by the federation


these basket charges have remained unchanged for several years as well, sometimes we make a loss in the club as some weeks we send part baskets but have to pay for full ones - the club also faces a fine if they put more than 25 in a basket (inland non - combine races)


The club I am in tries various ways to raise funds - one is a loft draw £2 a week and is compulsory whether or not you send - 2 prizes won each week from members numbers (same number all year)


We won it just once last year - £10 - it cost £50 for the privilege!
