We are accepting birds from now until August for next years race. We will be having the same format as we have had in the past. We are raising the Entry fees too $250 per bird and we are raising the perch fees a little as well.. We keep the birds almost twice as long as normal OLR and with the rising cost of feed and supplies we have decided to raise prices a little. The perch fees are listed below.
first of all I would like to thank all of you that have supported the Spring Break Race, and for allowing us to fly Your pigeons and test them out for you. The birds that finished this race series have really been tested and are some truly great birds.
I would like to congratulate the 5 birds on the drop today,
Foys 32813 from Chee Racing Pigeon Loft, EPL 0879 from Eastern Pearl Loft, Lazy 0810 from Al Coury, SLI 2330 from Jones Boys Loft, AA 43414 from Cliff Jayben
I would also like to Congratulate The top 10 Average Speed Winners!! It takes a great pigeon to win this and Gary Wartick definitely had that pigeon AC 0369.. This pigeon was very consistent in the race series.
For those that won over $600 you will need to send me a W9. I would like to start sending some of these pigeons back next week.

Birds up at 6:40am, conditions are clear Skies, 5 mph west wind, 50 degree. looking at the weather today the birds will have a west wind wind the first 100 miles from 5-8 mph. Then the winds will shift to a North Norteast from Vegas to Mesquite after that they will have a 10mph headwind the last 100 miles. We will have lunch at 12:30-1pm and wait for the birds to show up around 2pm-3pm. Best of luck Everyone!!
We will push the final race back and have it Sunday. I will train short on Friday. I hate pushing things back but I have to do what is best for the birds. Thank you
The weather for tomorrow is getting worse everyday. It looks like we may be pushing it back a few days. I will update tonight.
It looks like we will be able to have the final race on Thursday April 15th. We will have lunch at 12:30 and wait for the birds to get home around 3pm. Best of Lick to Everyone!!
We may have to push the final race to Thursday April 15th due to high winds on tuesday and Wednesday.
I would like to congratulate the winners of the 312 mile Race. we had 6 birds come in togeth on the 1st drop. Mullins Family Loft, Cliff Jayben, Send an Ace loft, Gillins/Raddon, Lawrence Cummins and Marian Mucha were the owners of the 1st 6 birds on the drop. Also Gillins/Raddon had the 1st colored bird to trap so they won an extra $750 for that. We have been having a lot of hawk problems the last few races And trainings. And we also had a hawk go thru the trap today and get into 1 section of the loft. Luckily no birds were hurt because he was only in therefor about 5 mins. I am going to give the birds the day off tomorrow to settle down from the hawk issue and recooperate tomorrow. I am leaning on having the final race next week on Tuesday or Wednesday weather dependin. I will let everyone know in the next day or 2 on that and the details of the race. Best of luck to all.
I am pretty happy with the way the birds have been doing the past 3 races. This is a tough course with all the mountains and mountain passes that they have to navigate. This has been the toughest year in the 13 years that I have been doing this race to collect Entry fees. I don't know if Covid has affected people and they are having a tough time coming up with the money or what is going on? I have been told that some checks were sent 3 weeks ago and I still have not received them. Here is what I have as of now, which is what we will go with. If any other Entry fees come in before the 300 mile race I will adjust. Some birds will be pulled out of the race if not paid ASAP!!
I have 558 birds paid for
