WE WOULD FIRST LIKE TO CONGRATULATE ALL THE WINNERS. A SPECIAL CONGRATES TO THE FIRST TWO BIRDS DAN MCLOUGHLIN AND LYLE LOOMIS SPLITTING 21,000.  ALSO WOULD LIKE TO MENTION JUNIOR JAUNICH WITH A NICE TEAM OF BIRDS 3 IN THE PRIZES AND 6/6 ON THE DAY.  IT WAS A VERY WARM DAY LIKE EXPECTED AND THE BIRDS HAD NOT BEEN ACLIMATED TO THE DRY HEAT.  AS YOU KNOW ALL OF OUR TRAINING HAS BEEN IN COOL WET WEATHER.  THE BIRDS WERE VERY EXHAUSTED WHEN THEY HIT THE LANDIND BOARDS.  THE RAIN WAS THE REASON WE HAD TO POSTPONE THE RACE AND IT ENDED UP THAT RACE DAY WAS THE HOTTEST DAY OF THE YEAR SO FAR.

THE WEEKEND WAS GREAT WE HAD A BIG CROWD AT SHIPPING ON SATURDAY WITH A HAMBURGER DINNER PROVIDED BY CARLS JR. AFTER THE BIRDS WERE BASKETED.  ON RACE DAY WE HAD A LARGE CROWD OF 200-250 PEOPLE. WE HAD SOME GREAT CONVERSATIONS AND COMRODERY WITH OLD FREINDS. WE ALSO HAD A RAFFLE WITH A PERCH FEE GIVE AWAY, PRESSURE WASHER , A BICYCLE , WINE BASKETS PURSES FOR THE LADIES AND MANY OTHER GREAT PRIZES. WE ALSO HAD ONE OF OUR SPONSORS VOLKMAN SEED FACTORY SET UP A TABLE WITH ALL THERE PRODUCTS AND WE APPRECIATED THEM TAKING THE TIME TO BE HERE.

THE BIRDS CAME HOME VERY STEADY THE SECOND DAY WITH OVER 200 HOME AS OF NOW.  WE HAVE HAD IN THE PAST A 400 MILE RACE TWO WEEKS AFTER THE 300.  UNFORTUNATLY, WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE THE 400 BECAUSE WE HAD MANY FANCIERS TAKE THERE BIRDS HOME ON RACE DAY THINKING WE WERE NOT GOING TO GET ENOUGH BIRDS HOME FOR A 400. WE NEED AT LEAST 200 BIRDS TO HAVE A 400 MILE RACE AND TO MANY BIRDS WERE TAKEN HOME. NEXT YEAR NO BIRDS WILL LEAVE THE LOFT ON RACEDAY.

WE ARE WORKING ON PAYOUTS NOW. IF YOU HAVE WON MORE THAN $600.OO PLEASE MAIL A W-9 SO WE CAN SEND YOUR CHECK. CHECKS WILL GO OUT WHEN WE RECIEVE YOUR W-9.

WE WILL START SEPERATING BIRDS SO WE CAN GET THEM BACK TO THE BREEDERS. IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR BIRDS MAILED BACK PLEASE SEND ACHECK FOR $60.00. I WILL BE GOING TO JEDDS EITHER THIS SATURDAY OR THE NEXT TO DELIVER BACK THE LOCAL BIRDS.  LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT THEM BACK.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT

LOOKING FORWARD TO THE 2017/18 RACE

GOOD TOSS TODAY. THE WEATHER WAS SUPER UP ON THE DESERT. A SLIGHT WIND AT RELEASE AND AS I DROVE HOME IT WAS VERY CALM FOR THE DESERT. WHEN I CAME THROGH THE PASS I DID HIT STRONG TAIL WINDS. I THINK THAT MIGHT HAVE BROKE UP THE BIRDS A BIT. OVERALL I AM HAPPY WITH THE TOSS, BUT I NEVER LIKE LOSING BIRDS. WE SHOULD GET MORE BIRDS THIS AFTERNOON AND IN THE MORNING. IT IS A LITTLE WARM WITH VERY LOW HUMIDITY. IF YOU ARE NOT COMING TO SHIPPING, MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR ENTRIES IN. WE WILL STILL TRAIN A FEW MORE TIMES NEXT WEEK. LOOKING FORWARD TO A GREAT RACE WEEKEND.

WE TRIED TO GO 65 MILES TODAY BUT THE PASS WAS FOGGY AND THE BIRDS WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO GET THROUGH. WE BROUGHT THEM BACK TO 42 MILES. WE WILL TRY TO GO ON A LONG TOSS THURSDAY OR FRIDAY BEFORE ANOTER STORM COMES IN ON SATURDAY NIGHT.

Feb-19-2017

WE CRATED THE BIRDS EARLY THIS MORNING. WE WENT TO THE 42 MILE STATION AND COULD NOT RELEASE, DUE TO LOW CLOUDS AND SHOWERS. WE BROUGHT THE BIRDS BACK TO THE 20 MILE STATION AND RELEASED 2 CRATES AT A TIME. THE WEATHER FORECAST IS SHOWERS MONDAY TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. I WOULD HAVE LIKED TO GET IN A FEW SHORT TOSSES 40-65 MILES EARLY THIS WEEK BUT IT DOESNT LOOK LIKE MOTHER NATURE IS GOING TO LET US. WE WILL TRY TO GO 120 MILES ON THURSDAY OR FRIDAY.

WE WILL SEND OUT RACE INFORMATION AND ENTRY FORMS THIS WEEK. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU DONT RECEIVE IT.
