Please note that the prize money lists provided are a guide only based on an entry of approximately 1,100 entries. These figures are projections only, subject to payment of all birds entered.

  1. Prize money and how it comes about is based on 3 different payment options.

  2. Best bird feature will share in approximately 10.4% of the total pool of prize money.

  3. Race 1 will share in approximately 3.6% of the total pool of prize money.

  4. Race 2 will share in approximately 5.3% of the total pool of prize money.

  5. Race 3 will share in approximately 8.4% of the total pool of prize money.

  6. Feature Race will share in approximately 72.3% of the total pool of prize money.

  7. The total pool of prize money is the total sum of monies received, less GST, fees and expenses.

    8. In the home page there is a proposed prize money break down for all 4 races which will be adhered to on a percentage basis up or down depending on how many birds are entered and ultimately paid for. Prize money cannot be fully calculated until the final payments have come in, therefore prize money for all races will be paid out within 7 days of the final race. Finally all positions timed in by the Benzing M1 can be split by 1/10th of a second and so where possible positions will not be shared unless 2 or more pigeons are on the same 1/10th of a second. Why? In any race, it is always possible that many birds will arrive together and so it is possible that several birds will time in on the same second but can be split by 1/10th of a second. In an instance where 30 birds arrive together it could have the following scenario.

    1st timed at 13.09.11.2

    2nd timed at 13.09.11.4

    3rd timed at 13.09.11.5

    Shared 4th, 5th and 6th all timed at 13.09.11.6

    4th, 5th and 6th would be added together and split 3 ways.
