ENTRY'S DUE

HOPE EVERYONE HAD A SAFE AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

NOW COMES THE HARDEST PART OF DOING A ONE LOFT RACE. GETTING ALL THE ENTRY FEES IN ON TIME!!!!

THEY ARE DUE BY 12-31-16 SO IF YOU HAVEN'T SENT THEM WE WOULD APPRECIATE YOU GETTTING THEM IN THE MAIL. IF YOUR NOT SURE HOW MANY BIRDS YOU HAVE LEFT CALL KENNY AT 214-802-4440. IF YOU DO NOT PLAN ON ENTERING YOUR BIRDS LET US KNOW ALSO. WE HAVE LOCAL PEOPLE WHO ARE WAITING TO SEE IF WE HAVE ANY AVAILABLE TO ACTIVATE.

WE WILL CONTINUE TO TRAIN SO IF YOU LOSE ONE FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER YOUR ENTRY WILL BE REFUNDED. BETTER FOR US TO REFUND THAN WAIT FOR ENTRIES. THE ADDRES TO SEND THEM TO IS P.O. BOX 167 DECATUR TEXAS 76234. SOME PEOPLE WONDER WHY SO SOON!!! THE FIRST THING IS IT GIVES THE BANKS PLENTY OF TIME TO PROCESS THE CHECKS BEFORE THE FIRST RACE AND GIVES US TIME TO SEE HOW MUCH MONEY WE HAVE TO WORK WITH TO GET THE PAYOUTS DONE FOR EACH RACE. ALSO THAT IS WHAT THE RULES SAY IN CASE YOU HAVEN'T EVER READ THEM.

SO PLEASE GET THEM IN WE DON'T WANT ANYONE LEFT OUT AND GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL..

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL

THE TEXATOUS SHOOT

P.S. PATTI SAYS IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY MAILED YOU PROBABLY SHOULD OVERNITE IT

ONE DAY WARM WITH SOUTH WINDS NEXT COOL WITH NORTHERLY WINDS AND THE NEXT FEW DAYS IS JUST THAT TODAY IT IS SUPPOSE TO BE UP IN THE MID 70'S TOMORROW MORNING INTO NOON 70'S WITH SOUTHERLY WINDS 20-30 MPH AFTERNOON 50 DROP IN TEMP AND NORTHLY WINDS 25-30- GUSTING IN THE MID 40 MPH. SUNDAY MORNING 15 AND HIGH LOW 30' WITH WINDS. MONDAY LOW TEENS IN THE AM THEN WORMING MID 40'S. AFTER THAT IT LOOKS LIKE WE CAN GET IN A FEW TOSSES BEFORE CHRISTMAS. WE WILL TRY AND GET A 100 MILES TOSS IN BEFORE THE 1ST OF THE YEAR. BUT WE DON'T HAVE A SO CALLED ACTIVATION TOSS ANY WAYS. 

THERE ARE ABOUT 2 WEEKS LEFT BEFORE ENTRY FEES OR DUE SO START THINKING ABOUT GETTNG THEM HERE. (OUR RULES OR 2 WEEKS BEFORE THE FIRST RACE AND THE 1ST RACE IS 01-14-17) DON'T BE LEFT OUT BY NON PAYMENT LIKE THE ONE THAT DIDN'T GET HIS PERCH FEES IN AND BIRDS GOT PUT OUT OF THE RACE. IF YOU LOOSE A BIRD OR BIRDS AFTER PAYMENT BEFORE THE FIRST RACE YOU WILL BE REFUNDED.

THANK YOU AND HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON.

UPDATE

HOPE EVERYONE HAD A GOOD THANKSGIVING!!!!!

TRAINING IS GOING PRETTY WELL, BUT THE WIRES OR KILLING US(AND LITERALLY KILLING SOME OF THE BIRDS I'M SURE). LOOKS LIKE WE ARE LOOSING 5-6 EVERY TOSS WITH SOME MAKING IT WITH BROKEN LEGS AND SOME NEEDING TO BE STITCHED UP.

THE TOSS TODAY WAS A LITTLE DIFFERENT WITH THE LITE HEAD WIND THE LAST GROUP OUT SEEMED TO HAVE HAD SOME TROUBLE AND OR DRAGGING IN SPLIT UP.

LOOKS LIKE THE WEATHER IS GOING TO BE BAD FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS NOW. THE NEXT GOOD DAY LOOKS LIKE TUESDAY RIGHT NOW.

THATS ABOUT ALL FOR NOW. TILL NEXT TIME GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL.

TRAINING GOING AS PLANNED

THE TRAINING IS KINDA HIT AND MISS WITH THE WINDS BEING STRONG THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS WE HAVE NOT TRAINED. ( GETTING ENOUGH CUT UP AND BROKEN UP WITH OUT THE HELP OF 20-30 MPH WINDS) BACK AT IT TODAY AND BIRDS CAME GOOD CAN'T TELL MUCH ABOUT THE TOSS WITH SOME STILL FLYING AFTER ARIVING HOME FOR A WHILE, AND I FIGURE WE MISSED CLOCKING A FEW WITH THEM PILEING IN WHEN THEY DO LAND. SO IF YOUR MISSING ONE FROM LAST TOSS WAIT TILL TOMORROW WILL PROBABLY BE HERE THEN.

SOME PEOPLE OR ASKING WHEN ENTRY FEES OR DUE ALL READY. THEY ARE DUE 2 WEEKS BEFORE THE 1ST RACE. BUT WE  WILL TAKE THEM ANYTIME BETWEEEN NOW AND THEN. IF YOU PAY EARLY AND WE LOSE YOUR BIRD IT WILL BE REEMBURSED. WE HAVE GOTTEN SOME ALREADY. BETTER EARLY THAN LATE.  DON'T WANT ANYONE LEFT OUT. WE DID HAVE 10 BIRDS DQ FOR NON PIRCH PAYMENT ON TIME AND THEY WERE RETURNED TO BREEDER.

HOPEFULLY THE WEATHER WILL BE GOOD FOR A DAY OR TWO SO WE CAN GET IN A GOOD RYTHUM ON TRAINING RATHER THAN 1 DAY ON 1 DAY OFF LIKE IT HAS BEEN.

TILL NEXT TIME EVERYONE HAVE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND GIVE THANKS FOR WHAT YOU HAVE.

TRAINING HAS BEGUN

THE CRATE TRAINING IS COMPLETE AND ROAD TRAINING STARTED!!!! 

THE BIRDS WERE LOADED EVERYDAY LAST WEEK IN THE CRATES AND HAVE GOT THE HANG OF IT FOR THE BIGGEST PARK. IT MAKES IT EASY ONCE THEY GO IN THE CRATES AND KNOW THEY OR SUPPOSE TO STAY IN AND NOT RUN BACK OUT WHEN YOU TURN.

ANYWAY YESTERDAY WAS THE FIRST TIME DOWN THE ROAD AND ALL WENT WELL (JUST 8 MILES) AND THE SAME TODAY. TOMORROW PLANNING ON GOING TO THE NEXT STOP FOR A COUPLE OF TOSSES. THEN WILL START LIVE CLOCKING FROM THE NEXT STOP, WHERE YOU CAN SEE WHAT IS GOING ON. WILL ONLY BE TURNING THEM OUT A FEW CRATES AT A TIME SO CAN'T REALLY TELL THAT MUCH.

WE DID HAVE A FEW GET PICKED OFF BY THE HAWKS BEFORE WE STARTED TRAINING.  THE ONLY ONE I KNOW FOR SURE IS BAPTISTA 11 GOT IT BEFORE IT GOT TAKEN OFF.

THATS ALL FOR NOW.

GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL.
