TRAINING HAS BEEN HIT AND MISS WITH THE WEATHER AND WINDS CHANGE EVERY OTHER DAY. BUT IT LOOKS LIKE AFTER TODAY WE WILL HAVE A FEW GOOD DAYS IN A ROW TO GET IN SOME GOOD TOSSES.

NOW COMES THE HARD PART OF RUNNING A OLR!!! JUST WANT TO REMIND EVERYONE THAT THE ENTRY FEES OR DUE 2 WEEKS BEFORE THE FIRST RACE NOT AFTER AN  ACTIVATION TOSS. THAT DATE IS 12-23-17!!!! YOU ALL KNOW THE DRILL IF WE LOSE ONE OF YOUR BIRDS BEFORE THE FIRST RACE YOU WILL BE REIMBURSED. BUT IF THE ENTRY IS NOT HERE ON OR BEFORE THE 23RD THE BIRDS WILL BE UP FOR OPEN ENTRY.

GOOD LUCK TO YOU US ALL

WEATHER NOT ALLOWING TO TRAIN

WELL THIS OLD TEXAS WEATHER HAS BEEN PLAYING WITH US HERE, SO TRAINING HAS BEEN IFFY. WE HAVE BEEN PLAYING IT SAFE AND JUST LOFT FLYING WHEN WE CAN. BUT OF COARSE WHEN YOU LOFT FLY YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE HAWKS. THE ONLY GOOD THING IS WE ARE GETTING A LOT OF WINGS TIME ON THE LOFT FLYING. THE BAD THING IS THE HAWKS HAVE GOTTEN A FEW BIRDS. TWO OF THEM WE KNOW FOR SURE OR DEN 314 AND TULSA 776. SO YOU GUYS WILL KNOW YOUR BIRD WAS KILLED NOT LOST, NOT SURE ABOUT ANYOTHERS. BUT IF THEY OR MISSING THE NEXT TRAINING IT COULD BE HAWKED NOT LOST. IT LOOKS LIKE MAYBE AFTER TOMORROW WE MAY HAVE A FEW DAYS TO GET IN SOME TRAINING AS LONG AS THE WIND DOESN'T GET TO STRONG SO KEEP WATCHING FOR TRAINING ON THE SITE.

TILL NEXT TIME GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL

HAND INVENTORY

WELL ITS TO WET TO TRAIN SO DECIDED TO DO HAND INVENTORY TODAY. ALL THE BIRDS IN THE LOFT IS ON THE TRAINING PAGE. WE HAD 2 BIRDS THAT HAD LOST THERE CHIP BANDS. THEY HAVE BEEN REPLACED (ARPU 5723 & AA 17642) THEY HAVE BEEN ADDED AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LIST.

HOPEFULLY THE WEATHER WILL CLEAR OUT AND WE WILL HAVE A FEW DAYS SO WE CAN GET IN A RHYTHM ON OUR TRAINING SCHEDULE.

THE PROJECTED PAYOUT HAS BEEN POSTED ON THE TEXAS SHOOTOUT WEBB SITE SO YOU CAN CHECK THAT OUT. AND REMEMBER WE DO NOT HAVE A 100 MILE ACTIVATION TOSS THE ENTRY FEES OF 250.00 PER BIRD IS DUE 2 WEEKS BEFORE THE FIRST RACE. THE FIRST RACE IS 01-06-18 SO THAT MEANS THE ENTRY IS DUE 12-23-17. AS ALWAYS IF WE LOSE YOUR BIRD BEFORE THE FIRST RACE ENTRY FEE IS REIMBURSED.

THAT IS ABOUT IT FOR NOW.

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE

IT IS ABOUT THAT TIME

DID A HANDS ON INVENTORY TODAY, SO YOU CAN CHECK OUT THE TRAINING PAGE TO SEE WHAT YOU HAVE. THERE WERE 3 BIRDS THAT HAD TO BE RECHIPPED. THAT HAS BEEN DONE AND THEY ARE ON THAT INVENTORY. SO WHAT IS ON THE INVENTORY IS WHAT IS HERE. I KNOW THE HAWKS HAVE TAKEN A FEW SO IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING MISSING AND WE KNOW THE HAWKS GOT THEM FOR SURE THEY WILL BE MARKED DIED ON YOUR BIRD LIST.

WE WILL START LOADING THE BIRDS IN THE CRATES SOON SO THEY WILL GET IN THE HABIT OF GOING IN AND COMING OUT. WE WILL LOAD THEM ON THE TRUCK AND LET THEM SET FOR AWHILE BEFORE WE RELEASE THEM FROM THE CRATES. WHEN THEY GET THIS DOWN THEN DOWN THE ROAD WE GO.

THAT'S IT FOR NOW

TILL NEXT TIME GOOD LUCK

NOT MUCH HAPPENING AROUND HERE

JUST A LITTLE UPDATE TO LET EVERYONE KINDA KNOW WHATS GOING ON HERE.

THE FLIGHTS OR BACK IN AND THE BODY MOLT IS GOING STRONG, WE ARE LOFT FLYING THE BIRDS EVERYDAY. WE DO STILL LET THE BIRDS OUT IN 2 DIFFERENT GROUPS, THAT IS WHY THE BIG DIFFERENCE IN CLOCKING TIME. THEY OR STARTING TO GET BACK IN THE GROVE, THE TEMP HAVE COOLED DOWN, WITH MID TO LOW 70'S IN THE MORNINGS NOW AND MID TO LOW 90'S IN THE AFTERNOON.

WE HAVE HAD A HAWK ATTACK ABOUT EVERYDAY OR SO, BUT I GUESS THAT IS JUST PART OF THE GAME NOW ADAYS WITH MORE AND MORE ALL THE TIME IT SEEMS.

WE HAVE THE CLOCK RUNNING AND WILL LET IT RUN FOR A COUPLE DAYS, SO DON'T GET TO EXCITED IF YOU HAVE A BIRD OR TWO MISSING ON THE FIRST CLOCKING.

THATS ABOUT IT FOR NOW,

GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL

LOFT FLYING DISASTER

YESTERDAYS LOFT FLYING WAS A DISASTER!!!! THE FIRST GROUP WENT OUT AROUND 7 A.M. AND WERE GONE FOR 40-45 MINUTES( WHICH THEY HAVE BEEN DOING FOR A WEEK OR SO), WE THOUGHT MAN THIS IS GREAT UNTILL THEY STARTED COMING BACK, LEGS HANGING DOWN CHEST SPLIT OPEN. I DON'T GUESS I HAVE EXPLAIN IT TO YOU GUYS AND GALS. ANYWAY BY THE END OF THE DAY DOCTOR KELLEY D. F. P. HAD STICTHED UP OR PUT SPLINTS ON 14 BIRDS, (WORE OUT A NEEDLE AND A SPOOL OF THREAD) AFTER 4 HOURS OF SURGERY WE THOUGHT WE HAD THEM, JUST TO GET HERE THIS MORNING WITH 3 MORE TO WORK ON. WITH ONE NOT BEING ABLE TO SAVE AND NO TELLING HOW MANY DIDN'T MAKE IT BACK. NEEDLESS TO SAY IT WASN'T MUCH FUN HERE YESTERDAY AFTERNOON AND THIS MORNING. I HATE IT BUT I QUESS LIKE THEY SAY THATS PART OF PIGEON FLYING, I JUST DON'T LIKE THAT PART!!!

THE SECOND GROUP OR NOT RANGING LIKE THAT YET SO HAVEN'T HAD A PROBLEM WITH THEM. THEY ARE THE LAST AND THE YOUNGEST GROUP. THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH THEM IS THESE 100 + DEGREE DAYS AND 80-90% HUMIDITY. THERE HAVE BEEN A FEW OF THEM THAT HAVE HAD HEALTH PROBLEMS, BUT NOT TO BAD AS A WHOLE.

WILL DO ANOTHER HAND INVENTORY AND PULL 10TH FLIGHT NEXT MONTH ON THE ONES THAT NEED IT, SO THEY WILL BE BACK IN WHEN TRAINING TIME COMES IN A COUPLE OF MONTHS OR SO. (MAYBE THE FIRST OF NEXT WEEK IT'S JUST SUPPOSE TO BE IN THE MID 90'S) SO BE LOOKING FOR THE INVENTORY TO SEE IF YOU WERE ONE OF THE UNLUCKY ONES.

TILL NEXT TIME GOOD LUCK AND GOOD KEEP COOL
