Pigeon One Loft
Racing
      

A New Season Begins.

Our loft is situated 10 Km north of Lake Ontario, straight above the village of Colborne in the Northumberland Hills. Our loft is on the upside of a large valley which gives us a great sight line for race birds coming home. With the new loft completed last season all our time can now be devoted to the care of your birds. In 2020 we have opted to fly the first four races along the east side of the Quebec border with the last on the Ontario side.. Our race points will be at 1st-150km, 2nd- 250km, 3rd-350km, 4th-450km, 5th-550km and 6th- 660km. The birds will be flown on the natural system using the lights and constant training to slow the molt. Our race season starts on August 14, 2022. 

Our prize payout has changed for 2022 with the shorter races paying on the drop. The projected payout is based on 1000 birds being entered. With more birds paid up, we will add more paid positions to the last three races flown. We will have a loft pool and pool sheets for race # 4, our main event, for those who wish a little extra excitement. As always, we will have our tent and food for the last two races and you are welcome to come and visit at any time. Just let me know when so I can get the coffee on.
Hope we'll see you in 2022.
Linda and Rick.
