Payout for 300 mile race December 5th.
Ok. We will try again tomorrow (Tuesday). Weather looks good!
Due to rain in West, Tx this morning we have cancelled the race for today. I don't like this weekend's forecast but Tuesday looks pretty good. We will continue to watch and keep you posted.
250 Mile race on Friday November 22nd from West, Tx. Good Luck everyone! Happy Thanksgiving!
We will have the first race next week either Monday through Wednesday. I am watching the weather and we will keep you posted.
Birds all arrived in one group. One bird went in 8 1/2 minutes before anybody else. I looked at it and seems to be fine. I had some birds circle for over an hour in the cool weather. Also I realized that one of the 4 traps was disconnected so we missed every bird that trapped there. They are all home by count however. Wei will loft fly tomorrow and that will give an accurate inventory.
We did put an antenna under the waterer so it will pick some of them up today as they get a drink.
Average Speed rules...
Each breeder can only choose 3 birds to compete in the team average speed no matter how many entries he has.
Cost will be $150 per team.
Average speed will be timed by the first bird of the three bird team in each race. If bird “A” is your first bird on the 200 and bird “B” is your first bird next race, and bird “C” in the following then each bird will have contributed to your team average speed. In some cases only one or two may actually contribute depending on the first bird from the 3 bird team.
If a bird is lost then there is no substitution. The three bird team must be designated by November 8th.
Payout will pay 5 places.
Birds are on hold due to heavy fog in OKC and south at the moment. We expect to release them by 10 am.
