In the first 7 years of the GOLD COAST 50000 a basic team was 1 fully paid and 2 reserves. As of 2019 this is no longer an option, therefore there are no longer reserves in the event.
However as referred to in a previous page, we do have loft spares for a number of reasons.
replacements for early losses prior to the closing date where a customer cannot replace a lost bird with one of his/her own 2. replacements where birds are lost due to viruses after the closing date. 3. birds available for customers who are unable to provide their own.
