MassKara derby stakes P6 million
About P6 million is at stake in the 2005 8-Stag MassKara Derby that will be held from Oct. 15 to 25 at the Negros Coliseum.
The stag derby, which is organized by the Game Fowl Breeders Association of Negros, is expected to draw more than 300 entries, Al Garcia, president of GF-BAN, said.
It is an exciting year for GF-BAN since it is the biggest stag derby to be held by the organization so far, he added.
Aside from GF-BAN banded stags, wingbanded stags of the National Federation of Gamefowl Breeders Association members may also compete in the event provided their game fowls will be subject to GF-BAN screening rules, he said.
The entry fee for the stag derby is pegged at P23,500.
The elimination round will take place from Oct. 15 to 19, while the semifinal matches will be held from Oct. 21 to 22.
The championship rounds will be from Oct. 24 to 25.
Meanwhile, P1 million will be given by the GFBAN-NFGBA to the winner of the 5-Stag Derby that will be staged from Nov. 10 to 14 at the Negros Coliseum.
The two associations will also award 2005 GFBAN-NGBA Stage Breeder of the Year to the breeder who posts the highest cumulative score in the GF-BAN 8-Stag MassKara Derby or the GFBAN-NFGBA 5-Stag Derby.
