Announcing The Third Annual Blue Ridge Challenge Futurity Race
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2003 --- 250 MILES
Breeders and flyers from coast to coast are invited to participate!
The Challenge is one of the country's more unique futurity events, staged in a racing environment that features a variety of conditions and terrain that thoroughly test the skills of each and every bird. Situated in the very heartland of the Blue Ridge Mountains, birds must learn to cope with ever-changing climatic conditions while exposed to three distinct seasons in one of America's most dramatic and scenic locations. The course spans three southern states, transpiring over the flatlands of Georgia, through the foothills of South Carolina, and finally into the mountains of western North Carolina, a constant ascension of 3000 feet on their return trips home. All of these factors combined give the birds an added challenge in their quest for superiority!
