I must admit I'm not a big fan of OLR's, but I would be willing to be part of a syndicate. It could add a bit of interest over the winter. A couple of points though. Chris says that the pick up dates for youngsters are June, July and September, October. If you went for the last date and the youngsters were 5 weeks old when sent, they would only be 4 months old when racing starts and would still only 6 months old when expected to race the final race of 279 mls. If youngsters were sent with the first pick up they will almost be yearlings come the final race. It does appear that there is going to be a big spread of different aged birds. The other problem I could in visage is the moult. The older youngsters would probably have gone right through the moult, the younger ones would only have just started so the date of sending youngsters would be quite important to have them at the right stage for the races.
Just my thoughts, I may be wrong.

As with Andy OLRs are new to me and not something I would enter myself, partly because of cost and partly because I want the pleasure of racing my own birds.
I do however feel they have a place in our sport, especially for those unable to race themselves for whatever reason.
As far as this one goes, if enough of us want to take part there is still time to meet the June/July pick ups. This way we get the best of both worlds, those who want to send birds can do so at a fraction of the cost and those like me who just want the added interest at an affordable price can also do so.
I assume the age variation is the same in most OLRs and is even similar in our own organisations. Most clubs have the longest young bird race towards the end of the season and most of us will send 1st, 2nd and even 3rd round youngsters to it.
Jmo, also could be wrong, wouldn't be the first time :lol:

Yes that is right George, some youngsters are trained to race back to their loft and learn how to trap, before going over there. Some good points raised by Andy too. I would rather send older youngsters to this type of O L R because of the demands of flying over water. They need to be well in their body to be able to show their true potential, i feel sending younger birds would be setting them up to fail. just my thoughts.
