Took all the bird out today for a 50 mile training toss. Turned it in as a trainer but all the race birds were not erased yet from the clock. So it did not register the birds entering. Will do an inventory toss around the loft tomorrow and a 65 mile toss on Friday morning. All are welcome to attend shipping this Saturday at noon.
Good Luck To All
Birds were basketed for the 150. Maybe a fast race. Payout is 2805 with 33 birds entered. First and second is 1000 with third being 805. Total birds is 216. Dont forget to pool next week for 200 mile sprint race. $100 per bird 10 for 1.
Good Luck to all.
