Things are going great here at the loft. Birds are getting exercised every day.. We have been loading them on the trailer and releasing them from just up the road, getting them used to the system. We will get all birds chipped and start running inventories shortly. If your bird is missing you have been notified. Check the Bird list and if something is wrong with the way your bird is listed please lmk so we can get that fixed. Birds are healthy and looking great. Thank You

Great day for a Race!!
Birds up at 6:30 clear skies and the birds should have a 5-8 mph headwind to start then it should change to a 5mph tailwind. Lunch will be at 12:30 today. Birds should be home around 1:30 pm or so. Best of luck to everyon!!
Well it looks like we will have the final race this Frida. The wind has been ridiculous all week and looks to be the same for the weekend and next week. Friday is calling for 8mph winds so I think we will be good. We will have a luncheon about 12:30 for those that are able to attend. Best of Luck to everyone!!
Birds were brought back home due to 25 mph winds that were not forcasted. We will try again tomorrow. We might have to move the final race to Friday or Saturday. The weather is not looking the greatest on Sunday or the next 3 days after Sunday. I will keep everyone updated.
Congratulations to the first 3 birds on the drop for the 300 mile race. DWI 364 Breed by Lawrence Cummins, KTL 0369 breed by KT Loft and AA 39463 breed by Wang Shu. The race turned out to be a pretty tough day, this race course is not an easy one at all. There are a lot of Mountains and passes these birds have to navigate and if they make a wrong turn it is tough to get back home. We ar leaning towards having the final race on Sunday April 10th. The wind is not looking good for the weekend on the long range weather forecast but we will shoot for that day and make a final decision around Wednesday or Thursday. If you are planning on attending Sunday we will have a Luncheon at 12:30pm eade RSVP if you are planning on attending text or email me Dcarter418@msn.com or 435-310-0307. Thank you and Good luck to Everyone!!
Birds up at 7am. Clear skies, should have a head wind of 5-8mph most the way home. Best of luck to everyone!!
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. I have been told that some checks for Entry fees were sent 2 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.
