CLIMATE CONDITIONS

The weather conditions of this year cause several issues. We trained pigeons during July which was characterized by extremely high temperatures. The training was succesful anyway. Although the typical temperatures in August are milder, this year seems to be an exception.
In addition to continuing high temperatures, the magnetic field of the Earth is strong and unstable. That was the reason why race from
Tvrdonice was that hard. An upcoming race Zohor seems to be affected by fluctuating magnetic field as well. We hope to start on Wednesday
22nd August 2018.

Cooler weather should come by the end of the week. This is good although strong wind from the North will come. This will be less serious in Bohemia than in Moravia where it impacts in full strength from Poland to Slovakia and further to the South. Therefore I cannot guarantee that the date of final race will remain unchanged. Please keep watching to stay updated.

SEASON 2018 - THE PRAXIS BEGINS

We have received more than 1500 doves and another, already 5th season of One Loft Race Talent Quatro competition, is in front of us. It is a part of international FCI championship. Thus, we will celebrate a small jubilee. We have got many experiences during this time. One has to say that there were predominantly positive experiences.

We have covered about 11,000 kilometres through Europe this year. We came, for the first time, to Italy for the young doves. We are convinced that the personal contact is very important in our job. Few comments were received during the personal discussions and we have decided to accept them from this year.

The most important comment, just from two places, relies to the auction of the doves after the final race. Under the actual system, the doves were photographed in few groups and if more doves from one fancier came back, they were offered in different auction stages. Next, the complete auction took long time and was timely very fragmented. There are two basic requirements to us. The first is to finish the auction in such a way that there is possible to transport quickly the auctioned doves to the doves fair in Kassel, Germany. In this year, it takes place on 27.– 28.10. 2018. It is very hard requirement having in mind that the final races should take place on Tuesday, 11 September 2018.

How to solve it? Taking photos of the doves must be realised within one week after the final race and all doves must be photographed at once. This system also allows fulfilling the second requirement: to offer all arrived doves of one fancier in line. If we announce to the fancier, when will be offered his doves, he can arrange his own promotion on the web. This will allow to increase the demand and, of course, the price too.

The last comment was that the used Polish auction portal is not able to serve to all interested persons, is too slow and even stops some times. These facts influence uncomfortable the interest of buyers and, to the contrary, decreases the price. We consider that it is solid to inform this portal about all mentioned requirements. Thus, if we will agree, depends on them. But, at the same time, we work actively on different option of selling and we have many positive reactions and technical solutions. Our aim is speed and increasing of financial shares of the original owners of the doves.

OLR Talent Quatro is in good condition and therefore, we have decided, to extend the prizes of final race. This modification relies to the doves arriving on place 31 to 50. The original award of 50 € will increase to 70 €. Quite newly, the doves arriving on place 51 to 100 will be awarded by 30 €. All prizes will be paid immediately.

We will improve this year by camera system. We will transmit on-line the arrivals of your young doves from all trainings and races. A lot of work is in front of us, but we enjoy it. We are looking forward to your visit of the final race. But, you can come to any race. You will be welcomed.
