Merry Christmas to all!

2 birds returned this morning: Tulsa 374 and ADL 669. We plan to fly the 225 mile race next weekend, weather permitting.

Good luck,

RIVER VALLEY ROUNDUP RACE UPDATE

The birds were watered for 15 minutes this morning before being released into beautiful mostly sunny skies from 55 miles. Most birds performed well, some did not. We will rest the birds tomorrow and race from 150 on Thursday. I don't like the headwinds and high K-Factor but at some point the birds just have to perform.

Good luck to all,

Bobby

RIVER VALLEY ROUNDUP RACE UPDATE

Although the weather has not been acceptable to race, we are able to flag the birds for an hour most days. They are all exercising very well and stay up for the entire loft flying session. As a precaution, we have treated for trichomonasis for 5 days with Turbosole from Siegel's Pigeon Supplies. The plan is to loft fly tomorrow, toss from 55 miles on Tuesday and race from 150 miles on Thursday.

Good luck to all,

Bobby

My mistake. In stead of needing to add $50 to the prize pool we have $50 left over. Not sure what to do with this. How about we give it to the last bird home on the day? We will still donate $50 so this would be $100 to the last bird home on the day of the 300 mile race? If no one objects that's what we will do.

No birds returned today. 2 birds came in from loft flying yesterday after I had pulled the clock. We flagged the birds again today and they flew really well. The current loft inventory is posted on the website. There are 150 birds. Weather permitting we will fly the 150 after this weekend. The weather is not good until then.

We sent 169 birds to the 1st race so we will start with 169 points for 1st place. The 1st drop gets 169 points each. If there are 10 birds in the 1st drop they each get 169 points. The 11th bird will get 159 points. The next places will be in 1 point increments. All birds that clock on the day will receive points. Any ties (birds that clock in the same second) will receive equal points. This will be for the 1st two races. The last 2 races will be the same but with double points. 1st place will be 338, etc. I will post the amended payout schedule soon.

The weather continues to change for the worse. The very 1st decent day we will have our 1st race. The mornings consistently have low heavy clouds, head winds and cold temps. We are flagging the birds for an hour or more on most days. The last race fee payments are coming in. Everyone has responded quickly. I will post the payout and point system schedule soon. I will notify everyone when we are flying the 1st race.
