RIVER VALLEY ROUNDUP RACE UPDATE

Yesterday we flagged and loft flew the birds and they flew for 1 hour. Today we tossed from 27 miles and almost all of the birds performed very well. McLofts 103 came in late with an injured leg. I'll have to asses his ability to continue. We are still missing 2 birds.

RIVER VALLEY ROUNDUP RACE UPDATE

We had heavy clouds today and a little mist and wind. We kept the birds home and flagged and loft flew them. The birds flew for 1 hour before being called in. They all look fantastic. Tomorrow's weather is forecast to be the same so we plan a repeat of today. Wednesday should be better and we plan to release from our 27 mile spot.

RIVER VALLEY ROUNDUP RACE UPDATE

The birds have been rested and restored. We flagged and loft flew today and all the birds exercised for 1 hour. We will loft fly Monday and Tuesday and resume training tosses as soon as the weather clears, probably Wednesday morning.

Good luck to all,

RIVER VALLEY ROUNDUP RACE UPDATE

2 days ago we tossed the birds from 27 miles and they performed phenomenal. Yesterday we took the birds about 8 more miles and they had problems. Right now we are still missing 14. I expect to get back more as they have been coming in 1 at a time since morning. I'll keep you posted.

RIVER VALLEY ROUNDUP RACE UPDATE

The birds performed much better on their 20 mile toss today. We are still missing 4 birds. I have the loft set up so if any late ones trap in they will be isolated with food and probiotic water. The plan is to toss from 20 miles again tomorrow morning.

RIVER VALLEY ROUNDUP RACE UPDATE

Yesterday we had dense fog in the morning. We kept the birds home and flagged them. The local weather called for dense fog this morning. We kept the birds home and flagged them. They easily flew 1 hour. The plan is to resume tosses early tomorrow morning. The weather report is calling for strong wind so hopefully the birds will be home before then.

RIVER VALLEY ROUNDUP RACE UPDATE

Due to the potential for problems with the weather today we kept the birds home and flagged them for about an hour. They flew well with no stragglers. The birds will be flagged again tomorrow and the plan is to begin tosses from 20 miles on Friday. We are still missing 3 birds from Mondays toss.

RIVER VALLEY ROUNDUP RACE UPDATE

Today we tossed the birds into cool sunny skies about 8 miles further than yesterday. For some reason they had a lot of trouble. Fortunately all but 9 birds are home at this time. I am going to leave the clock on until mid morning tomorrow. Hopefully most or all of the 9 will be here then. It never bothers me if they have trouble as long as they make it back. I believe the birds learn a lot on these type of tosses and are better prepared the next time they encounter difficulty. We will post the results of this toss tomorrow. We will not toss tomorrow but plan to be back on the road the following day.

Good luck,

Bobby
