NEW FOR 2021.. Due to Coronavirus & the restrictions in place which are unlikely to be lifted in time to be able to hold live auctions in the room, our breeder/buyer sales have moved online! 

Any UK fancier can enter as many YBS as they wish as the breeder. 
Open to all BICC members to buy. 
Race: Guernsey BICC YB on Saturday 28th August 2021

Entry details required...
1. Name
2. Address
3. Telephone
4. Loft Number
5. Ring Number(s)
6. Ready Date
7. Strain/Pedigree Info (the more info supplied, the more likely it is to sell, pics welcome)
 

In each auction, there will also be '5 nomination rings' up for grabs. The buyer will have until 8pm the following Sunday to notify the Secretary of their nominated ring number, this will entitle the buyer to be breeder & buyer 

Our back up plans in case we do not get YB channel racing or any racing at all (dependent on the changing info we receive in due course):
1. If we only have inland racing and this looks like it may continue into 2022 the Thames will put a race on from the South West as an Inland race in 2021 at around 200 miles to Essex, which will be for the Thames Open Race, Gold ring and Breeder/Buyer.
2. If no racing is allowed for the YBs at all in 2021 than all the prize money for both the Gold ring and Breeder Buyer will roll over to a yearling race with the BICC. Race point to be decided when we have better information as could be race 2 or maybe better as a latter come back race from Le Mans for example, if the pigeons have not been raced at all as YBs. (This is our preferred option).

Bird does not need to be in pen but ring number must be provided to secretary before or during penning. Buyers are responsible for making collection arrangements with breeder if bird is not in pen.  

Unfortunately due to the Coronavirus Outbreak, Sale 3 at Rickmansworth & Sale 4 at Tilbury were cancelled. We accepted £100 nominated ring numbers into the race until 12.04.20. 

Unfortunately due to further Covid-19 restrictions that have been put in place, it is very disappointing for all, but we have had to make the decision to cancel our Thames National Messac/Falaise Open Race which was due to take place in September 2020.
The prize money set aside from our Breeder/Buyer race (£500) & Gold Ring race (£200) which was to be awarded to the highest velocity clocked breeder/buyer and gold ring pigeon at the open race will instead roll over to a yearling race at the BICC in 2021 (this race will be chosen nearer the time). Thanks all for your support.
