312 Miles from Garrison MT

RACE 3 UPDATE

No excuses today. The weather was surpisingly cooperative. The birds had clear sunny skies with a few high scattered clouds and mild wind from every direction but nothing very strong for the first 160 miles of the course. The last 40 miles was mostly a 5 mph head wind with high overcast skies. They started South almost immediately after being released. We watched them until we couldn't see them. We caught up to them about 10 miles South of the release point and followed them for another 2 to 3 miles. So we know they at least got started in the right direction.

There was a good first drop of 19 birds, and the first 77 birds came perfectly from the north. Since then the majority have come back from the south. So they made a mistake somewhere and went the wrong way and over flew the loft most likely on the Ogden side of the mountains. The birds handled great when we crated them Friday night. So hopefully we will get more home tonight and into tommorrow. Today's race was the first race that they had to navigate the mountains up in Montana. In that rough and rugged country it's very easy to make a costly wrong turn. We stand by our decision to fly today. It was a great day for a race, unfortunately the birds made a mistake somewhere. 

Sincerely

RACE 3 RED ROCK MT

The first 2 races went good and the birds did great. We would like to congratulate the top 3 breeders from each race. They will recieve a free perch fee for next year.

Race 1 Sage Junction

1st - ARPL - NSL 1677 - BCSP

2nd - Griffin Loft - RMR 22204 - BC

3rd - Evolution One Loft - STLH 524 - BCSP

Race 2 Spencer

1st - Genesis Syndicate Loft - GENE 611 - BCPD

2nd - Borderline - RMR 22311 - BBSP

3rd - Genesis Syndicate Loft - GENE 603 - DC

The 3rd race will be 200 miles from Red Rock, Montana. The weather this week is very unstable so we will fly the 3rd race when we feel the weather will cooperate for the birds. The good news is that hopefully all the rain this week will help with all the fires we have going, and the birds won't have to fly through as much smoke as last week. We will also try to get in one more training toss before the 3rd race.

Also we are extending the deadline for the extra chances to win. After next week birds may still be activated for the color race, pedigree challenge, or 2nd chance but there will be an additional charge.

 

Prices are as follows:                     

Prior to Sept. 9th            Sept. 9th - Sept 15th    Sept 16th - Sept 22nd    Sept 23rd - Sept 29th

AOC $75                                     $ 85                          $ 100                             $ 125

2nd Chance $200                        $ 225                         $ 250                             $ 300

 

Thanks for all your support

RACE 1 UPDATE

The birds overall did really well today. There was about 40 miles that was pretty hazy and smoky today. We have been really lucky as this is the first smoke the birds have had to fly through this year. We have watched about 25 birds now coming back from the south which usually means they went down the wrong valley and were headed towards Ogden, Utah.

Birds that were basketed for the race last night need to paid for. Most the checks are here and of course there are some in route. If you haven't sent money please do so soon or we will hold your birds out next week. 

Also we are extending the deadline for the extra chances to win. After next week birds may still be activated for the color race, pedigree challenge, or 2nd chance but there will be an additional charge.

 

Prices are as follows:                     

Prior to Sept. 9th            Sept. 9th - Sept 15th    Sept 16th - Sept 22nd    Sept 23rd - Sept 29th

Pedigree Challenge $75                $ 85                          $ 100                             $ 125

AOC $75                                     $ 85                          $ 100                             $ 125

2nd Chance $200                        $ 225                         $ 250                             $ 300

 

Thanks for all your support. We wish all the best of luck. So thankful to be able to fly your birds. Call or text us with any questions.
