Venture Racers Terms and Conditions 2022 Race Series

1. Venture Race Birds (Venture Racers) are donated pigeons or selected pigeons from entrants who have not paid the required entry fee. These are for sale to anyone.

2. The entry fee for “Donor” birds is USD 1050 before Hotspot 3 which entitles the buyer to an automatic entry into the Super Ace Competition. USD 50 of this will be paid over to the Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust. After Hotspot 3 the entry fee is USD 800 as Super Ace can no longer be entered. The entry fee for other For Sale birds (not Donor birds) is USD 750 with an option to pay USD 250 for Super Ace.

3. On conclusion of the race and upon sale of the Venture Racers 50% of the net proceeds after sales costs will go to theVictoria Falls Wildlife Trust and other designated trusts or charities, 25% to the Activator of the pigeon and 25% to VFWCPR. Breeders of Venture Racers will not receive any payment for those pigeons.

4. If fanciers would like to donate pigeons towards this cause, they should send an email to VFWCPR for prior approval as Venture Racers will be restricted. Any venture racers received without approval may not be accepted.

5. The Venture Racers donated will be received by VFWCPR without payment of an entrance fee, but all transport and quarantine costs must be covered by the donor and a perch fee of USD 50 will be levied per bird. This will be debited to fanciers’ accounts, is non-refundable and goes towards administration and upkeep.

6. The rights to prize money for Venture Racers will be offered for sale on the website to anyone wishing to pay the entrance fee including non-pigeon fanciers, other fanciers, or the donor. The date and time will be announced when the pigeons will be offered for sale. These rights will pass to the first person booking the bird in writing by email, stating the specific ring number and paying the entrance fee within 24 hours, upon which the bird becomes an eligible pigeon as defined in point 2 of the terms and conditions.

7. Once a Venture Racer becomes an eligible pigeon, it will qualify in all respects as if it were a normal eligible pigeon as defined herein and any prize money won will accrue to the purchaser of the rights for that bird.

8. Venture Racers which are not selected for the auction may be given away or sold after the final race at the sole discretion of VFWCPR.

9. When an entrant selects a Venture Racer which is subsequently lost before Hotspot 3, they may select a replacement from for sale pigeons available to the same value. If there are no for sale pigeons available, then the entrant will be given a credit as per section 1.3 of the General Terms and Conditions. Pigeons lost after basketing of Hotspot 3 will not receive a credit or replacements.
