Keep up the winning waysmy friend and it is great to see a UK pigeons picking up the nomination moneyon a regular basis.
The CASCADE CHALLENGEwas a new competition introduced last year and it created a great deal ofinterest. It is basically a SINGLE BIRD NOMINATION and any pigeon can beentered for just US$10 (approx. £6-66p) but the “POT OF GOLD” can only be wonif one of the NOMINATED PIGEONS actually wins 1st OPEN, if not its like theNational Lottery, it just rolls over to the following week until somebodyfinally wins the jackpot. You do not have to enter the same pigeon every race,the choice is yours. The Sun City Million Dollar web site will give you all theinformation you need to enter this competition. There was a starting fund of US$3,028-50(approx. £2,020) which was carried over from the 2009/10 race series. You canenter this competition starting on TRAINING RACE 2, then 6, 9, 11, 14, 15 &18, plus CAR RACES 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 and of course the FINAL RACE. SO WHY NOTHAVE AN EXTRA BIT OF FUN AND A LITTLE GAMBLE?
CASCADE CHALLENGE resultfor CAR RACE 3 had a total of 139 entries and this included 18 pigeons enteredfrom the UNITED KINGDOM and 3 from IRELAND and a total of US$7,865-00c wasflown for and GUYS LOFTS with TONY’S CHOICE came 10th OPEN and just missed outby 04.10 seconds to scoop the jackpot. This is one of the toughest competitionsto win because the single pigeon nomination means the pigeon has to win 1stOpen to walk off with the cash prize. This fund will now carry over to TRAININGRACE 9 on Saturday 4th December. GOOD LUCK TO ALL THAT TAKE PART IN THIS EXCITINGCHALLENGE.
