Our Club members may chose from two separate groups (Group "MK" and Group "MM") to compete in.
Participants in group "MK" (club championship) compete strictly per the NTU rules; one exception: we do not set our watches to the BBC time :-)
Participants in group "MM" (small championship) compete per the I.T.F. or the NTU rules.
This means, among others, the participants may chose the fly day from the fly weekend schedule and can also fly the honor system.
To promote flying, participation on both days of the weekend is allowed in this group.

winter tippler training over snow (December 11, 2012)
The tippler sport is for those who enjoy thoroughbred animals competitions.
The results with competition tipplers come fast. After purchasing two or three breeding pairs, you can start competing with their youngsters in just a few weeks - as opposed, for instance, to racing horses in which case you must wait for many long years...
Keeping and flying tipplers is, after the initial investment into a few good breeding pairs, an inexpensive sport. To keep tipplers you need only a small loft because the number of pigeons you need to compete with is low - in most cases, the competition kit consists of 3 to 5 birds.
The flying tipplers sport eliminates many worries and expenses. For instance, purchasing the expensive clocking equipment that the homer fliers need, you do not pay any transport charges to train and race your birds (tipplers fly over your house as opposed to the racers who fly straight lines home), no need to pay any competition enrollment charges in our club, no veterinary bills to assist at births - just once a year vaccination will most likely be your only veterinary cost. No worries about you birds contracting a disease during basketing and transport to a distant place of liberation, no stress to your tipplers during the transport.
There are not many of us tippler fliers in this country - the flying tippler sport still remains a real sport. Wouldn't flying tipplers be the right hobby for you too? You will always be welcome aboard the KCHT!
