Birds up at 7:45am!! Partly cloudy, no wind at release. Birds will pick up a tail wind about half way home. Best of luck to everyone!!!
On today's training about 20 birds were missed. I will do an inventory tomorrow
i will try to get a 50 Mile training in tomorrow and have the 1st race (150 Miles)on Tuesday. We are having high winds here for the next few days so I will watch the weather closely. The 150 mile race will be the 1st race counting towards Average Speed. We will have a 200, 250, 300 and the final 350 mile race. I will get a payout posted as soon as all the checks clear. Best of luck to Everyone!!!
Birds were released at 8am this morning,a few minutes after the birds were released we had a Falcon chasing the birds as they were circling. The birds were scattered into quite a few groups. It is 8:40 as I am writing this message. I would imagine the birds will be a little split up as they come home today. Remember Entry fees are due now For those birds that come home today. ! Please send them and you must Activate all the birds that you have.. No Cherry Picking!!
The birds are doing very well on the trainings so far. I will continue to train every other day weather depending. I am looking at the 3/10 or 3/11 to have the 100 mile Activation training. I would like to get a couple more 70-85 mile trainings in before I go to the 100 mile station. Entry fees will be due after the 100 mile toss and before the 150 mile 1st Race Which will be about a week after the 100 mile Training. We will try to have the races about a week apart after that until the 350 mile final and we will give them 10-14 day break and have the 350 mile final race. Remember any bird that doesn't go to the 1st 150 mile race will have its Entry fee refunded. Please get your Entry fees to me on time. Make checks Payable SPRING BREAK RACE to and mail to address below. You can also pay online using the PayPal option on this website. Thank You and Good Luck Everyone!!

We are having some terrible weather, should be able to train again tomorrow. Birds have been loft flown and flagged between storms.
We have been dealing with rain and wind for the last few days and the extended weather forecast shows more is coming. I will get the birds out everyday possible. I was wanting to have the 100 mile Activation race around March 10th. I need to get a lot more training in so we will see how the weather goes between now and then. If we have to move the dates back we will. The birds are very healthy and doing pretty good. We had a couple injured birds from hawks, one missing all his tail feathers and another that was sliced up on his breast. We have contacted the owners of those birds. I will continue to train everyday possible. Any Questions call or email me!!
Internet stopped working. Clock shows 390 birds home. Most all came together. I will fix call internet provider and get it fixed.
I was going to take the birds to the 50 mile station today but there is a lot of fog in the valley. We will try again tomorrow.
we have bad weather with rain and strong winds for the next two days. I will loft fly or train short weather permitting.
