Hello Everyone. It's really hot and humid here right now. We are still doing all the boring stuff: cutting and pulling flights, vaccinating, tricho treatments, trap-training, lofting, etc. We will have all the birds ready to start training tosses when the heat passes.
We are in the process of creating an email list with a new service. Hopefully that will be resolved in a few days.
Good luck to all,
Hello Everyone! We are just doing all the routine work that happens at this phase of the race season. Trap-training, lofting, cutting flights, vaccinating, pulling flights, etc, etc. The weather goes from hot and humid to cooler and lots of rain. So far, everything is going really well. We have only lost a few birds at this point. We hope to have an inventory next week. We will continue to prepare the birds so that when it cools off a little in the mornings, they will be ready to perform on their training tosses.
Hello Everyone! Nothing exciting to report. We are receiving birds weekly. We should have about 200 birds by the end of the week with more to come.
We are trap-training and lofting the birds after they've been here for about 2 weeks. Our first group has been outside 10 times and a new group is about to go out for their 1st time in a few days.
We are looking forward to a great race season.
Good luck to all!
All checks are in the mail as of tomorrow morning 03/26/21. If you find a mistake please let me know as soon as possible.
Thank you for your participation! What a wonderful group of birds you sent us! Thank you so much for all your kind words and compliments. We will continue to do our best for your birds.
We have about 40 birds in the loft so far. We are expecting over 400 birds this year. We will be accepting birds until June 15th. Replacements until about July 1st.
New for this year is an OPTIONAL Average Speed Prize Pool. The cost is $300 per bird. This will in no way affect any of our normal prizes. This is OPTIONAL. The number of payouts will be based on how many birds are entered. For instance, if we have $20,000. the payout would be something like this:
1st Average Speed - $5,000
2nd Average Speed - $4,000
3rd Average Speed - $3,000
4th Average Speed - $2,500
5th Average Speed - $2,000
6th Average Speed - $1,500
7th Average Speed - $1,000
8th Average Speed - $500
9th Average Speed - $500
You don't have to nominate your bird or birds until just before the first (100 Mile Race). Once you nominate your bird or birds, you cannot change.
The OPTIONAL Average Speed Race Prizes will be determined over the 4 race series.
