To the weather folks, all 5 sites, you suck! Line of thunderstorms on radar from release to home. I'll try again tomorrow, it looks better, but this BS was not supposed to happen. Also winds today gusting to 25.
We are going to attempt our 100 mile race, tomorrow. Do not expect an early release as this station has fog issues from time to time. We flew a 100 in the. Club from the same area this morning, and had to wait a pretty good while before getting the birds out. I will edit the release when I get home from the release. Good luck to everyone.
We are not going to fly the 100 mile race today due to weather. We have 100% cloud cover, some fog, and rain chances that could become a factor. We also have rain chances thru Friday. As soon as we get a decent day, probably Sunday, we will go. We use 5 different weather apps, there are struggles with forcasts being consistent.
We are experiencing rain showers every day for the next several days. We are pushing the 100 mile first race back to Wednesday. We will keep a close eye on the weather as no one on earth can seem to have a clue as what's going to happen.
We are looking at flying the 100 mile race this coming Tuesday, weather permitting. We are in a rain pattern, so we are a little unsure of if the rain will hold off. This first 100 mile race will be for Average Speed only, as we have a good payout on the two following this 100. If you know someone who doesn't follow the computer, please let them know of our plans.
We are Having a recurring problem with our antenna. The birds stormed the trap on arrival, I have a suspicion it missed a few birds. This is a brand new lazier antenna . I am working on it. First race, 100 will be next week, 3 days of rain coming.
Birds. We Tossed the birds from 60 miles for the second time today. They did very good One or two more tosses from 60 and 70 then we will be thinking of the 100 mile Race. Birds were right on today.
Birds were tossed from 60 miles. Came good although some went by. Tailwind and hot. 169 of 171 are in the clock. Trouble once again finding a com port on the computer to download to Wincompanion. Computer guy working on it now. WITH A OLR, ITS ALWAYS SOMETHING!!!
Trouple sending to Wincompanion clock shows 167 171 sent 40 miles birds did good try and loft fly Sunday No good tomorrow, race day Thousands of birds going by.
I went inn the back door on Wincompanion and it is not listing the numbers. The clock shows 171. The birds did storm the trap and we might have missed a few. The birds finally came on line with most together in the flock. Some came down and then went back up screwing around. The posting does show the birds arrived and their correct time, with some out screwing around.
