Hello breeders, please check out the new 2018 race format.
In an attempt to change with the time's and encourage more and new entries, a new prize structure has been formulated.(See under rules tabs)
The Midwest race last year was a one-time event and not an issue in 2018, (I placed 2nd & 3rd with 7 places in the top 13!)
Different from other OLR's-The birds are flown on the darkening system to ensure your birds are equal for competition.
Also after the 250-mile race, the cocks and hens are separated after each toss, to prevent eggie hen's and cock's losing weight from driving.
Loft conditions and handling show's up in the condition of your birds when returned to you, You will see the difference.
All of at FAOL express our thanks to all past participants and look forward to rewarding our breeders in 2018.
Today was the 300m race along with the Midwest race. The FAOL results are on the website now. The Midwest race results should be posted soon on the Midwest website. In the Midwest Race, Flying Aces birds we 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, and 13th. A very good day for the breeders!
Dale and the crew!

Today is Wednesday the day before shipping, Our 27th Toss the birds went on a 61-mile toss, with WNW @ 10mph it was a cold wind. They were home in 1 hour and 14 minutes. The birds did very well. 67 clocked in the same minute! The condition of all the birds is great. I need to let you know that there will be no live clocking the day of the race due to the Midwest race. The FAOL results along with the Midwest race at our loft will be posted shortly after the end of clocking. We will be filming the race on Facebook live! All are welcome. Come early for food fun and separate pooling at the loft. We are expecting very good results.
Dale and Crew.
There is an updated list of the birds here today on the website. Weather permitting most of the birds will be on a toss Tuesday and will be posted.
Good Luck Dale,
We had a tough day. There were 41 birds on the day, with 10 on the drop,17 the 2nd day 3 more the 3ard day #RRR 207, #Vita 7234, and #Jedds 1106.The 4th-day #MM 4154 & #MM4409. It didn't help that the 2nd day rained a lot. The gentlemen from Certified One, Oscar and Vince were here and provided an excellent service in a professional manner. I highly recommend this service for those providing one loft races.
Next race will be Oct. 6th with the Midwest Race, I will continue to toss the birds as they become ready for it. Those that need the rest will get it before being tossed again. Congratulations to the 1st 10 birds they deserve it.
Thank's to all and hope to see you at the convention, Good Luck Dale and crew,

Tonight the birds were sent for the 1st race of 250m. A good day is predicted with a south wind. there were 3 birds that did not go due to wire injury's at this time but are making good progress. The Midwest race is a long way out yet and I won't waste them if not ready.Another bird # 4152 Nanz BB his chip failed at basketing and has been sent to the race. The bird will not show up on the sheet but the bird's position will be verified by 3 flyers and will be counted. If the bird comes on the drop within a group, it will be counted last in that one particular drop.
I will post Liberation, weather, and expected time of arrival, all are welcome. Good luck to one and all. Dale and crew.
