The 300 mile race is going to be this Sunday. Right now the weather forcast is sunny and warmer with right cross winds. If the forecast changes and the winds are going to be tail winds the race will be cancelled. If you plan on being here bring your own chair and if you are going to lunch with us we will be leaving here at 11:45 to go to our local Mexican Restaurant.

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

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.

I hope every one had a Merry Christmas. The weather has been really bad here until yesterday. We flagged the birds yesterday and today. They exercised really well today. Tomorrow we are tossing the birds from 55 miles. The plan right now is to race the 225 mile race on Sunday.

Good luck to all,

Bobby

Merry Christmas to all!

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.
