We recieved the TOPIGEON clocking system yesterday. Have a few more birds arriving in the morning. The two YB that are here are getting a rare glimpse of some snow.
Birds are arriving, Had a flyer bring two in yesterday.
Where has all the time gone? They say time flies when your having fun, well time has flown by these past few months. In just a few short months we have completed the loft and its ready to house your prized birds. We have changed the design I dont know how many times and i am sure we will be fine tuning things for a while.
Last week we recieved our vaccines and some of the supplements we will be using to keep your birds as healthy as possible. The new TOPIGEON clock will be here tuesday according to Fedex. I've got some custom feeders being built i will get those this afternoon. Communication has been made with the US Post Office and my number is on hand. Good news is our shipments will arrive at 0730 so when the birds arrive they will have plenty of time to go through the first day checking in process and have the entire day to unwind and start settling in to there new home.
First and foremost i would like to thank all the flyers who have signed up for the Sooner Challenge OLR. Obviously it would not be possible without you. I have to thank the following OLR Managers for there assistance in this process.
APPLE CUP = RICK MEE
BLUE MOUNTAIN = RICH FOX
CROOKED RIVER CHALLENGE = LUCAS CRAMER
PEACH CLASSIC = AL GIBBONS
I would also like to thank Oscar Ruiz with CERTIFY ONE SERVICES. Our sponsors:

HAPPY FLYING! SEMPER FI
Since last update we've been doing the little things around the loft ordering a few supplies. were still waiting on the vaccine to arrive. we were able to hang the deer netting at 79 inches high thats the height of the ceiling in the loft.
Yesterday was very windy but warm. I was able to paint and hang some lattice. hopefully the pictures will be up on the gallery sometime today. Finishing touches will be hanging the wire and cutting holes for the new antennas from TOPIGEON. The antennas measure 23 long by 9 wide.
We are having some fairly warm temperatures this week and getting a lot of the tedious work done waiting for the wind to calm down so we can paint. Will post pics and video when finished.
high of 52 today and very windy so no painting. cut and hung 60 perches. cut the lattice to height and got it ready to hang after the painting is done.
Good morning, Ive found that uploading videos takes forever. The most recent loft video is up on my YOUTUBE page Sooner Challenge. It will be up on here within a day or two. Happy Flying! Semper Fi, Rex
The loft is just about finished we are hoping to paint today if the fog will burn off. Then we can hang some wire. We will have a few more pics up shortly.
Warm weather predicted for a few days. We are making good progress on the loft. Almost all of the interior walls are up, lacking two 4x8 sheets need two make a trip to lowes for a couple lag bolts. Had a gentleman from one of the pigeon groups on fb send me a perch to see if i think they will work. My concern is there plastic and at the elbow just below the mounting bracket is also plastic. Anyone have any experience with these my contact info. is on Home page.
