We have had some rain here for the last couple of days. The forecast calls for Partly cloudy this weekend with possible rain again on Monday. We will train accordingly. The birds are doing and are healthy. Once the weather clears, we will get back to training everyday.
We have had heavy rains for the last 2 days wich are finally clearing up. Today we have some high winds which are blowing the storm front out of Las Vegas. Tomorrow and the rest of the week look good to train. We will loft fly today and post an inventory.
We have had lots of bad weather in the last couple of weeks. Everything from rain, snow and strong winds . It is raining here today and we are scheduled for more later in the week. We will be training birds in between these fast moving storms. We are working the birds south across Las Vegas with lots of short tosses. The birds are doing great and are healthy. We have had some injuries, mostly wire (legs) etc. These birds will be back on the truck once they are healed. Falcons continue to be a problem, especially in the city where most live on hotel rooftops. We have attacks on most releases. Just as a remider, we release 2-3 crates at a time, every 15 minute or so. Sometimes we wait longer or move to another location if the falcon's dont leave. Do not pay attention to the clocking times, or positions. Our group releases start at 80 miles.
We wil start weekly updates to keep you informed. We are very busy every day, getting ready for the races. Weather permitting, we are planning on our 100 mile activation toss at the end of January.
We have had lots of bad weather this week with rain, fog and snow in the higher elevations. The birds have been getting out and loft flying between the storm fronts. We will resume road training next week. Health is good, coopers are bad and only a few injuries to report.
Please book your rooms if you are planning on attending our final race and want to stay at the Aliante Hotel and Casino which is located 2 miles from our loft.
Wishing you and your families a safe and happy Holiday Season!!
Training is coming along well this week. The birds have all learned the alleyway and loading chute. They are taking well to the crates and trailer training. We are loft flying daily and flagging the clunkers. The Cooper's help us keep the birds in the air. Health is excellent, with only a few injuries. We will start road training in a couple of weeks with lots of short tosses, working our way across Las Vegas. We will post our training tosses when we get out to 20 miles.
If you are planning on attending our final race and want to stay at our host hotel, Aliante Hotel and Casino, please book your rooms now.

We tested the clock and new entry pads yesterday and all seemed to work fine. We had 20-25 birds go in before the clock started. We will run another loft fly next week and pick up those birds that did not register.
The birds are out flying daily and are in excellent health. Our hawks are visiting the loft a couple of times a day and keeping the birds up in the air.
We are starting to cool off here in Las Vegas. After having the hottest June and July on record we are having highs in the 80's and lows in the 60's. The birds are doing great and out flying every day weather permitting. We have a pair of coopers that showed up last week and have been visiting us every day.
We have replaced some entry sensors and will be posting an inventory this weekend. We will do a monthly inventory until we start training in December. Then we will start posting training tosses from 20 miles and longer. Once we start training we dont stop until our first race.
We are working with the Aliante Hotel for discounted room rates. We will post a link as soon as possible.
Good luck to all in the fall futurities !!
It's starting to cool off here in Las Vegas to the mid 90's. The birds are doing great, with most of them finishing up with their moulting. We have no sickness to report and all 400 birds are out flying daily weather permitting.
We will start flagging the birds in November and road training in December. Clocking inventories will start next month.
As a reminder, perch fee's were due when your birds arrived. We still have a few breeders who are not paid up. We will post a list of birds available on October 1.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Just a quick update for August. The birds are doing great. It is hot here and they are going thru a body molt. No health issues to report and only a couple of leg injuries. The birds are out early in the morning and back in before it gets to hot.
As a reminder, Perch Fee's were due when your birds arrived. For those of you who have not sent them, please send them in.
Thank you for your support.
We currently have 30 spots left to fill up our loft. We will take these on a first come, first serve basis. If you are still planning on sending in birds, do it fast, as we will close soon.
The birds are doing great. We have no health issues to report, and our hawks are gone for the summer. Our plan is to keep the birds happy and healthy during our long summer. We start training in December. The birds are let out every morning in small groups, and are brought in when the heat sets in. The misters are on every day until 6:00pm and the birds seem to really enjoy them. All is good.
Thank you for your participation in this years race.
