The 150 Mile Race will be Wednesday, Nov. 14. We were gonna go today or tomorrow however there are extreme winds in the mountains due to a Santa Ana Condition. 35-50 MPH winds thru the mountains for Monday and Tuesday. We are planning on the 200 mi. race on Sunday, Nov. 17. Good Luck to all!
The fog and haze was not favorable for a good toss so we decided to bring birds back for a short 30 mile toss with intentions of going 125 tomorrow. Weather in El Centro looks much better tomorrow so hopefull we will have a good one tomorrow.
There is heavy fog in the El Centro area this morning, therefore our release has been delayed until fog lifts. Will put release time on the report as well as on this message center. The temperature is not of any consequence so we just have to wait out the fog.
The 120 mi. toss will be tomorrow, Nov. 8, and then the 150 mi. race will be Monday or Tuesday depending on weather and birds. Entry of $100 per bird is over due, please contact me and get the $100 per bird in asap. I will be contacting those of you that have not talked to me!!
Today's 90 mile toss was a mass release and all long tosses here on out will be a mass release.
Tomorrow, Sunday Nov. 4, we will be taking birds for 100 mil toss. We were gonna go today however it has been hot and dry the last 2 days, Santa Ana conditions and we felt the weather would be better tomorrow. Steve
