As a matter of interest how much does it cost a fancier in your club/fed to send a single bird to a race?

Will be interesting to find out how this differs between clubs/feds

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!

Ayrshire North Road Federation pay £115 conveying fees, but with fundraising subsidies and lottery agent fees, the average would be around £65. :)
