WHO ARE WE

Windy Corner Racing Pigeon Club is situated in Nigel in the East Gauteng

Rules of the 4 bird Grouping method

The rules to compete for prizes are based on the fact that if one pigeon can be in a certain area, theoretically it was possible for all the birds to be there in the same time. A bird that arrived first in a predetermined area is called a “Marker” and the rules are based on: - ·      

   What distance did subsequent birds travel during the net flying time of the Marker. The “Markers” net flying time multiplied by their individual velocities and the difference between the distance of the marker and the measured bird is referred to as “ the distance the measured bird was behind the marker at the time the marker was clocked” The performance of the first 4 birds of each loft is calculated in this manner and the average of these 4 birds are then called the “ loft grouping”

·         Please note that all calculations used are based on the tried and proven results of current methods.

·         This result is then divided by Net flying time in hours and again by 1000 so as to arrive at the distance lost in Km for every hour of flight

Kilometres lost per hour of flight. “KLPHF”
