Trying to get things finished and buttoned up for the year. Planning to return any more claimed birds the week of Nov 27th. The last of the prize checks were mailed Nov. 17 unless a W-9 was needed and those breeders have been notified. Thank you for the successful season and have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!!!............Paul
Concentrating this coming week on returning Prize winning birds, then the week of the 13th all others. If you have not already sent your desire to have your birds returned please email. Return shipping cost is yet to be determined Monday I should have a better knowledge of prices. Those with winnings of $600 or more need to send me a W-9. Have great week !!!!
312 birds are in route to Battle Mtn, Nevada our 350 mile and Final Race release point. We have planned a 7:45 release and should be expecting birds home after 3:00. Lunch has been planned for 1pm so bring a chair and warm clothing as the high for tomorrow is 50 degrees with bright sun. See you tomorrow!!!
The final race will be flown Sunday October 29th. Weather conditions including wind gusts to 20mph along with predicted rain and snow showers the last 100 miles into evening have forced us to make the change. See you Sunday......Paul
At this point the final race is being planned for Friday, Oct 27. Please RSVP so we can plan the meal and surely come and join us anyway!!!!
383 birds went out at 7:15 this morning from McDermitt,Nevada 250 miles. Bright and sunny skies , calm, and 43 degrees. Along the course we see the same with variable winds less than 3. At the loft about noon it's calling for clear skies, NE winds to 6 and temperatures near 70 . Get 'em home.
After today's toss at 80 miles you are probably wondering what is the plan. Because we are now getting out there in miles there are of course more weather patterns to deal with . Tomorrows scheduled race day has good release conditions however the last 125 miles has predicted rain. Sunday isn't good at the release site. We'll go for next week as the weather seems to be stabilizing.
425 birds are on their way to Race#2 Burns Jct, our 206 mile station. Planning for a 7:15 am release on the tail of a front that brought scattered showers to most all of eastern Oregon. Hope it's clear for a reasonable early release. Will you posted.
Still having difficulty with the postal system getting those entry checks delivered from across the country.
The Deadline for entry fees has been extended until the day of shipping Race#2, 200miles. Thank you for getting these in on a timely manner, many have been received. Also I have received paypal payment from George E. which I cannot track to anyones birds. Please include your Loft name with payment.
Most of the birds are home now from the 124mile activation race this morning. Entry fees are due and they can be sent by mail or paypal. Our first race is scheduled for this coming Friday September 15th. Looking forward to great series!!!
