RIVER VALLEY ROUNDUP RACE UPDATE

The birds performed much better today on the 55 mile toss. They had strong left cross winds like they are supposed to have on Sunday. I feel conmfortable sending them to the 300 now. We will flag them tomorrow and Friday. The Jerry Cantere bird that is the last bird on the list is a late bird from the 55 mile toss on Monday. This bird came in after we had left for today's training toss. Wayne Lowes bird 5978 shows up 1st on the last 2 tosses. Good job Wayne!

If you are coming to the race on Sunday, bring a chair. If you want to go to the lunch we are providing for everyone be here before 12:00. We are meeting at our local Mexican Restaurant and the food is awesome. The weather forecast calls for sunny skies, temps in the mid to upper 40's, and 15 mph left cross winds.

Good luck to all,

Bobby

As usual the weather changed for the worse. We had light fog and misty conditions the 1st half of the day today. The winds along the race course are strong tail winds Friday and Saturday and rain here on Sunday with predicted 30 mph cross winds between Waco and here. The weather is predicted to turn nice next week.

RIVER VALLEY ROUNDUP RACE UPDATE

Saturday and Sunday it rained all day. Yesterday we flagged the birds for 1 hour. Today we tossed the birds from 55 miles. The weather was cloudy and no sun with left cross winds 7-10 mph. It wasn't great results but good for training. The weather calls for heavy clouds tomorrow. We plan to toss the birds from 55 miles again on Thursday. We are supposed to have some sun so I expect the birds to perform much better. The weather in Waco Texas is not looking good but we hope that will change so we can fly the last race as soon as possible.

RIVER VALLEY ROUNDUP RACE UPDATE

We had strong winds with 36 mph gusts all day on Wednesday. We were able to flag the birds Thursday and Friday but the weather was not suitable for a training toss. We will continue to flag the birds each day, if possible, and toss the birds from 55 miles after the weekend. We will post the results. Right now it is raining hard and the forecast is rain on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

RIVER VALLEY ROUNDUP RACE UPDATE

We have tried all day to post the birds that arrived today. I suspect the problem is that the birds clocked in a different year than when the race started. I will contact Terry asap and upload these birds. I am listing the birds and their clock times below.

CBS 0997 08:30:27

TEX 1821 08:41:00

STAR 022 08:47:29

TRPC 6968 09:06:45

UCA 0155 11:02:59

KWAN 0617 13:36:58

I am committed to the last race NOT being fast. Even if we have to wait longer. We had to choose between Saturday or the middle of next week on this last one so we chose Saturday. The target date for the 300 is next Sunday. I will finalize that in a couple of days. We WILL have good food so plan on being here. 

We posted a pic on the website of the race birds in Hutchins, TX Saturday morning prior to release. This spot is across the street from Dollar General on Main Street. Click on the "RVR NEWS" tab to view.
