birds stay out and fly so pay no attention to the birds time as they clock in later..........
Our goal is to race in February, just what date that is is up to conditions given us by mother nature. Training can be spotty at times with one good day and yet two not so good days to go. We are holding at this station and loft flying during those days that we think are iffy. At this point, it matters not if we race early feb. or later feb even. So it is that some seasons differ from others and having to choose our way is the norm for us right now.
we were able to sneak this toss in yesterday before the rains arrived. Today the temperatures are nice again, but we have
some rain and so we will just loft fly. Things are looking up weatherwise moving forward, we just need to be careful and
selective. We will be talking with Terry today about the classes and how we will represent them on the site/race/results sheet
as much as possible. With some limits though, we will probably have to post the results on some classes listing entries as we
have done in the past when Wincom capabilities are overloaded. We will know more today.
stuff going on here. Anyway, we are again able to post so stay
with us as we continue preparing the birds.
LIGHTNING CAUSED 3 FIRES IN THE AREA AND KNOCKED OUT ALL THE ATT UVERSE INTERNET. WE JUST GOT A NEW MODEM THIS AFTERNOON.
PROBLEM NOW IS THE COMPUTERS ARENT CONNECTING AND WE HAVE TO GET THAT ISSUE RESOLVED. I AM USING MY DAUGHTERS LAPTOP TO GET THIS MESSAGE OUT TO YOU NOW.
GETTING THE CLOCK UPLOADED SHOWING TRAINING THOUGH CANNOT HAPPEN ON THIS LAPTOP SINCE IT HAS NO SOFTWARE TO DO JUST THAT.
WE EXPECT THE ISSUE TO BE FIXED ASAP AS I AM MAKING CONTACT WITH MY COMPUTER TECH AS WE SPEAK HERE. THE BIRDS WERE LOCKED DOWN FOR TWO DAYS AND WENT OUT TODAY AROUND THE HOUSE FOR INVENTORY, WHICH I CANNOT EVEN POST. TOMORROW WE WILL GO TRAIN IN THE MORNING AND I WILL POST THAT TRAINING AS WE ARE ABLE.
THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE.
Severe storm, lightning, Internet down until Thursday evening. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Breeders, weather thursday/friday was too ''iffy'' so birds were flown around the loft. We resumed training today with a good stiff headwind, cool with intermittent clouds but sunny......
We will be going daily downs the road. If there is no report, it means weather stopped us. We will be doing a chip check on the
very next time we do not train due to weather......
was not this holiday season (Christmas) a great holiday from
Politics? It seems to have been even more meaningful to my family this season. We wish you all a spectacular new year and may all of us together continue to thrive.
The birds are now road trained daily, weather permitting.
new reports should come daily on Wincompanion as we move
stay tuned for more website info during training.
Happy Thanksgiving Week Everyone;
December 1st, we will begin our preliminary training. We will run our inventory before that time. evenings are dropping a little bit now in temperature but the days are around 70+ degrees. perfect. Health abounds, the birds glow, white wattles, and when they fly.......its up to a dot... airsacs are in great shape.
we will be printing out the entry forms and options for you that will be printable from your end. This form will be needed prior to the start of the official races after the qualifying toss of 100 miles.
you may either send funds for the weekly classes ahead of time, you as some choose to do, use paypal weekly when you decide
to enter those particular classes.
Next season, we will begin taking birds into the WinnersCup series starting June 1st. It will be a yearling race, held in feb./march. The entry format will be either 150.00 entry or 300.00 entry........A & B. Yes, your bird may fly both categories.
We will have 4 races.........150 250 325 325.............. the winnerscup website will be updated to reflect the details soon.
Redline series training will begin to show online at the 25 mile marker...........Thanks for your support.
as we move into the start of November, the weather changes here are subtle but we still winterize the loft. The aviaries are down and the front portion has shade cloth on a percentage of it to keep any direct
cold drafts or rain from coming in. It stays warmer at nite and last season we learned that this is the way to go in florida.
Nothing dramatic to report on yet, just be giving you some updated
inventories and updates. The birds were locked up for a couple of days as we had a troublemaker flying around and we are waiting for him to head to tampa for the winter
meanwhile, lets enjoy the final races of the olr schedule and before you know it, we will be training.
Our schedule is to begin sometime in February (races) but it really depends on the weather. Winter can be mild and may allow us to get the steady training in, so we will be waiting to see what it brings.
meanwhile, all the best of success to you guys breeding that are in the other races....
