The Top Breeders Challenge Prohibits The Loft Manager And His Assistant, Mike Garrett, (per paragraph 18 below) From Entering Birds In The Top Breeders Challenge Race.
Good Intentioned Questions Were Raised By A Few Fliers Who Desired To Enter The Race But They Thought It Inappropriate For Mike Cambra’s Assistant To Enter Birds. That Concern Has Been Resolved – Mike Garrett Has Graciously Withdrawn His Entries And Remains The Assistant To Mike Cambra.
Also, There Were A Few Fliers Who Wanted To Enter But Didn’t Like The Idea That This Website Stated That The Top Breeders Challenge Was A SOC Club “Sponsored” Race. It Is Not.
I, Mark Hernandez, Am The Person Who Owns This Website And Its Content Is Solely My decision. I Post SOC Club And SWI Club Race Results On This Site And Agreed In Friendship To “Host” The Top Breeders Challenge Site Here Free Of Charge.
I was Responsible For Mis-wording The Language That Suggested This Is A SOC “Hosted” Race. Those Edits Have Been Made So Please Accept My apologies.
So, Now, Those Of You Who WANTED to Fly This Race Can Be Assured Your Input And Concerns Have Been Addressed And Resolved. We Look Forward To Your Participation In This New Race. Good Luck To All And Thanks For Your Understanding!
