News and Updates

Good Morning Flyers!

I hope this finds everyone well and that you were able to enjoy the holidays with some family.  The weather is beautiful here in Central Oregon this morning with sunny skies, snow covered mountains, and very mild temperatures.  My old bird team is out enjoying themselves and the first of my 2021 young bird team has just hatched...Perfect day for baths!
Welcome to all the new breeders that have signed up for the 2021 season.  I have updated the email list this morning, so that should be current...if you would like to be taken off or added to my email list please just let me know.  Prepayment of reservations have started to arrive and those payments have been added to the prepaid "PPD" bird list.  As a reminder, this is the only way to absolutely confirm reservations...with that said there is no immediate rush at this point to get payments in.  Payments can be made via money order, check, Zelle or Paypal.
Please make sure to read the RULES (also found under race info on homepage) before reserving perches.  Perch fees are the same this year at $115 per bird with no quantity discounts offered and entry fees are also the same at $450 per bird due after the 150 mile activation.  Same as last year a PMV vaccination is required at least 10-14 days before the birds arrive here at the loft.  New for 2021 is a sprint series option that will include the 4 longer trainers before the 200 mile race (further details in the rules)and as long as the weather holds a 400 mile race will be offered.  
I am looking forward to another successful season and fingers crossed we will have limited smoke issues this year.  Birds will start arriving at the loft the first week of March.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions!  Also, if anyone has any good information regarding live feed cameras please shoot me an email.
Wishing you all great success in 2021!
