SEPTEMBER 18TH UPDATE:
BIRDS ARE SCHEDULED TO SHIP TO THE DERBY ARONA RACE ON SEPTEMBER 28TH!!
The shipping/quarantine/export fee's are $125 per bird for this race. Why the $25 price increase from 2019? It costs 2x as much to export to this race with all that is involved in the shipping/quarantine/export requirements.
If we export more than +300 birds total for this shipment, we will refund back to you, $25 per bird on the shipping/quarantine/export fee's for every bird you've sent us that successfully gets exported overseas to Tenerife.
A team consists of 5 birds, of which 1 is active and 4 are reserves. Entry Fee's are $250 USD Per bird based on currency rate of spring 2020. It's 220 EURO PER BIRD. This Entry Fee may fluctuate throughout the year, as the EURO Fluctuates in price.
We will do our best to collect what is due according to the most up to date currency exchange rates at the time we collect entry fees for reserve birds. The Euro has gone up in value since we collected the initial entry fee payment. This means that activations in December will cost a little more per bird, because of the exchange rate differences.
Please keep in mind that we collect in USD, however, we are required to send and pay the race in EUROS.
Only 1 prepaid entry fee is due at the time of shipping. Any remaining birds available later on will not need to be activated until December 2020.
TOTAL DUE WITH 1 TEAM OF 5 BIRDS IS: $875 USD.
SEND 2 TEAMS AND THE TOTAL WILL BE: $1,750 USD
