FOG

We are covered up with VERY HEAVY FOG THIS MORNING. HOPEFULLY BIRDS WILL WORK IN WHEN IT LIFTS

Nov-03-2022
AS ADVERTISED

We had ten day birds today on A VERY TOUGH DAY. The birds had to work their butts off to get home.  We had 2 birds on the first drop.  Congratulations goes to those first two birds, and all the day birds.  Day was not for the weak of heart.  As we have always said, we want the birds to work, so that when you get your birds back, you got a bird that can and did give you a honest days work.  I Will wait until Friday night to post the payout, as I'm still waiting on a couple of checks.

There 12 colored birds, none home yet.  The race is still open as there is still money on the table.  Good luck tomorrow.

FINAL

The basket list is up.  Please check for your entries to make sure it's correct.  We have checks coming in this week.  This is fine as long as they are postmarked prior to noon tomorrow. If you don't pay, we will handle that on our end.  We always trust our customers, until they prove us otherwise.  If for any reason you haven't paid, your check envelope must be postmarked before noon tomorrow. Have the PO hand stamp it.

As those of you know that fly with us, we do everything in our power, not to fly blow home finals.  Tomorrow should be a real pigeon race, as before. There should be light and variable winds from start to finish.  A working race, where you can find a good bird. I think they are going to have to work to get home.

FINAL

We are planning on flying the final race, 325 miles, this next Wednesday.  It's important to note, we have had late birds,  Nome were beat up too bad.  I may train this weekend, I have too see what the birds look like.  It's cold at night now, and I also would like to let the birds rest.  The wind has been brutal up here.  If I do not train, I will loft fly the birds, not forcing any birds up.

Your payments are starting to arrive, especially the pay pal transactions.   If you not have mailed your entry, iT IS TIME.

RACE TODAY

The birds were pulled back to the 175 mile station this morning due to high winds expected. The wind is projected at SSE, 10-18 that it the dreaded side wind that is playing havoc with the birds. The hauler was at the 200 mile station and the wind was already present. Our hauler is a successful flyer in our club of 25 years, and the hauler of our club races for many years. He didn't like what he saw so we dropped back to 175. As I have told you the winds are outrageous here in the Midwest, just look at the Hoosier yesterday. Let's hope they lay into it. Good luck to all

Oct-24-2022
225 MILE RACE

We will be flying the 225 mile race on Tuesday. Weather Channel has overcast at release, AccuWeather has Sunny. I am keeping a close eye on the wind. They are calling for SSE winds 10-15. This is the dreaded side wind that we lost 30 something birds on the last race.  We just flew the AU race 2 days ago, with brutal winds.  Almost every flyer is still out half of their birds. NOTE:  I will adjust distance according to heavy winds. I'm not interested in throwing birds away for any reason, period.  
  There is no use in waiting because it doesn't change anytime soon. Rain also in future. temps been in 40's for 5 days, rain, snow, and sleet. Yesterday and today, bumping 80. Wow, what is going on with this weather.  
A glance at OLR's this year is showing a lot of losses in a lot of races, we are no different.  Tough year all the way around in many parts of the country.
