We will be flying the 200 mile race tomorrow. We have had a 40 degree drop in temperature. 2 cold fronts back to back. birds act like it's dead of winter. Rain and drizzle last 5 days. Could be tough. Good luck. Release is at Harleyville truck stop, SC.
We will be back in Gaston SC tomorrow for the 150 mile race. Weather is hot everywher, period. Birds will go up early, hopefully we can get them home before it gets brutal. Good luck to everyone.
150 mile race is on hold due to fog. I emailed Terry the basket list last night and tried to call him several times. Does anyone know if he is ok. He did not respond, not like him. He is always on it.
We will be flying the 150 mile race tomorrow. If you have mailed your fees your good. If not they need to be here Asap. Good luck to all gonna be hot.
we will be flying the Activation Race tomorrow, 9/25, Wednesday. The heat has been oppressive here with every day in the high 80’s to low 90’s. My neighbor has recorded 1/4 inch of rain since July 4th. We will release early in the morning, 7:30 or so. Good luck to everyone. Your fees will be due within a week. We will fly the 150 in a week. I’m not going to sit on these birds waiting on money. If you are missing a bird, wait two days before sending your fees to see if it returns.

I am delaying training for a week or so because we received many birds very late, and they are in a heavy moult. Birds are flying extremely well, and health is excellent.
Not a lot to report at this time. Birds are flying super, routing excellent, getting at least an hour and a half daily. Training will be starting very soon. We are posting updates about ever other day so you can see who’s here. Health is good, hawks are terrible this year, don’t really know why. One around daily. Stay tuned.
BIRDS ARE FLYING PRETTY GOOD AGAIN. NINTH AND TENTH FLIGHTS ARE ABOUT HALF WAY UP. VERY ROUTINE NOW, BIRDS ARE LOFT FLOWN EVERY DAY, BUILDING CONDITIONING. TRAINING WILL BEGIN IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS. YOU MUST CONDITION AT THE LOFT. IF YOU WANT TO TRAIN BIRDS 2-3 MILES TEN TIMES THINKING YOU ARE CONDITIONING THEM- GOOD LUCK. ALL IS WELL, ON SCHEDULE. STILL TRYING TO GET THE CLOCK STRAIGHTENED OUT. WILL GET IT GOING. BIRDS HERE NOT SHOWING UP ON THE CLOCK. MY BACK IS GIVING ME ABSOLUTE HELL I WILL GET THROUGH IT. ONWARD THROUGH THE FOG.
