5TH RACE UPDATE

Plymouth Peak Pro Challenge Flyers,

We handled all the birds this morning, and there are about 15 to 20 birds that aren't where we want them yet. So we are going to give them a few more days of Loft Flying and another short toss as well as good feed and hopefully fly the 300 early to mid week next week. 

Thanks for your patience and understanding,

Brad Hoggan and Derik Alder

LOFT FLY

Dear Plymouth Peak Pro Challenge Flyers,

The birds are looking good and wanting to fly. There were a half dozen or so that came down early today. So we will continue to watch and monitor the birds closely to determine when we will be flying the next race. Stay tuned.

 

Thanks,

Brad Hoggan and Derik Alder

Dear Plymouth Peak Fliers and Followers,
    The third race is closed. This one was a tougher than expected race. Quite a few birds got off course and had to come back from the South. Even with the added fly time coming back from the south, the birds looked and acted great as they came in. It was a nice sunny day with very little wind along the entire course. We are looking forward to our 4th race this Friday. It will be 250 miles from Apex, Montana. There is possible nasty weather forecasted for this weekend. So we will be keeping a close eye on that. All birds are hand scanned for each race. 
We would like to congratulate the perch fee winners from Red Rock: The winning speed was 1517 YPM

Better than what they have been flying through. We are planning on doing our 2nd race this Friday. It will be 174 miles from Spencer, Idaho. All birds are hand scanned for each race. We would like to congratulate the perch fee winners from the first race:

    The majority of the money is here, we just have not had a chance to go through everything and get it all updated online. We also received a lot of phone calls and emails this past week informing us that checks were in the mail.
     If for some reason you still owe money Please Make Sure All Fees Are Paid ASAP  This will make it easier for us to get an accurate payout posted as soon as we can.
     All birds that were scanned into the Sage Junction Race is the list we will go off of to figure prizes. All these birds must be paid for ASAP or they will be sold to someone else or disqualified.

 arrangements to do so ASAP or your bird will be disqualified from the race or sold to

We will only take the 15% of $300 that we always take. If desired breeders may pick and choose which birds on their team to pay the additional $200.00 entry fee on. However only birds entered with a $500 entry fee will be eligible to win the extra money. So please make it very clear which bird or birds you wish to enter into this option. 
    We will pay out all the extra money to the top 10% of Champion Birds after the race series is over. This will go only to birds entered with the extra $200 Entry Fee.

 Dear Plymouth Peak Fliers and Followers,
    This year has been the one of the most challenging years to fly pigeons. This group of birds last Friday did amazing from our 85 mile location. They flew 1600 ypm and we got 100% home. Yet only 3 days later and only 15 miles further, they really struggled coming home for no obvious reason. The speeds were drastically slower and 1247 ypm being the top speed. It was a smoky morning, maybe slightly more smoky than normal, but no worse than what they have already flown through. There was very little to no wind. These birds felt great when we boxed them Sunday night, and everything coming home looks great. We will make sure that the birds that returned from Blackfoot will be rested and ready to go before we do the first official race. The smoke is supposed to get worse for a couple of days then begin to clear out this weekend. So we will monitor this closely and make a decision for the first race date.  
    All birds that returned from this race need to be paid for ASAP so we can begin the official race series as soon as we can. The first official race that counts towards Average Speed and Champion Bird will be 138 miles, from Sage Junction, Idaho. Date still to be determined.

  We took the the birds 70 miles on Monday and 70 Miles again today, Wednesday. They did great on both tosses. We sent 280 Monday and 278 clocked. Out of that 278 as of noon today 275 have clocked. The smoke is relentless this year, so we are planning to take them 90 miles Friday as long as the smoke isn't super thick. We will evaluate how Friday's toss goes and decide what to do for Monday. We will try to have Friday's toss online.
    The birds look and act great. We appreciate your patience with us as this as been a challenging year to train. We are trying to make decisions based on what we feel is best for the birds. The Cooper Hawks are migrating back through. One hit the birds today, but luckily wasn't able to catch any. 
  If for some reason we don't get the internet up and running by Friday, the birds will continue to be trained and clocked as usual and we will post numbers as they become available. 
    As we are getting closer to the races, keep the Pedigree Challenge in mind. Enter your pedigrees for $25 per pedigree. 
    Also keep the colored entries in mind. $75 per bird. Any bird besides a Blue Bar, Blue Check, and a Dark Check qualify for this. 

 All training tosses are available to view from the wincompanion website.
