THAMES GOLD RING RACE

2021

We are again running our Gold Ring Race for 2021.
Open to all BICC members to buy.
Race: Saturday 11th September 2021 - BICC Vire YB.
Rings are available to order now at £10 each (max 10 rings)

Open & Section prize money to be won (breakdown to be confirmed)
Rings will not be posted, until payment is received. We transfer the rings into your name.

Our back up plans in case we do not get channel racing with YBs or any racing at all (dependent on the changing info we receive over the next few weeks/months):
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). 


2020

Following on from the success of the 2019 Gold Ring Race, rings are available to order now. Only BICC members can purchase.

Race: Saturday 29th August - BICC Falaise YB.
Rings available at £10 each, max 10 rings per fancier.


Gold Ring Winner:
L. Bastone £2,000 
In 2020, We Paid Out £5,880! 

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.
