Spring Break Race
Hello Spring Break Fliers,
The weather here is just not quiting, we have 3 inches of snow here and it is still snowing.. I haven’t seen the weather like this for a long time. It is looking like this weather is going to be here this next week and clear after that. I will train the birds as much as possible when the weather allows. I would like to get a couple more 70 mile trainings in before the 100 mile activation training. The birds have been released in groups about 15-20 minutes apart the last few trainings. I will release the next 70 Mile Race all together..

The 70 mile toss yesterday seemed to be a pretty tough one for the birds. They had a pretty good head wind almost all The way home. We will get in a few more 70 miles trainings and hopefully get the 100 mile activation training in the next 10-12 days. The weather here still has been bad with rain and wind forecasted on and off for the next two weeks. We will do our best to get the birds ready for the 5 Race series ahead. Remember you can send your $200 Entry fee per bird anytime, and if your bird doesn’t go to the 1st Race your Entry fee will be refunded. Best of luck to everyone!!
Well Snow, snow, snow is what we are getting... It looks like we can resume training on Sunday and the next week looks good. This weather is putting us a little behind schedule. Don’t worry we will get the birds trained and ready. Entry fee money is not due until we have the 100 mile activation toss. if you send in your entry fees early remember there will be a refund for any bird that doesn’t make it to the 1st Race.
Dear Spring Break Fliers,
Well the weather has been crazy this week. We went from single digits at the beginning of the week to several inches of snow and scattered snow showers almost every day of the week, followed by a lot of rain and 40 degree temperatures, got a look at the sun before we received another thunder storm that put down more rain and snow. And more snow and wind and rain are predicted. The birds have been struggling in this weather. I will continue to train when the weather is good enough. We are a little behind schedule due to the terrible weather we have had. I need to get the birds coming consistently and be able to go every other day with them. We will get the training in as the weather cooperates for us. We will just be behind schedule.
I have been training the birds everyday possible, they have been out 30 miles so far. The weather has been really bad the last week with 2 big storms and we have a few more coming!! I will continue to train as the weather let’s up!
I have been training the birds everyday possible That the weather is good. I still have a handful of birds that are not registering with the breeders name. I will get those fixed so don’t panic if your bird is not showing up. I will start posting the trainings when the birds get out to 30 miles. We will be releasing the birds in groups of 20-30 until I feel like they are getting comfortable flying as one group.
We appreciate your support and hope that you have a Wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. That it will bring you happiness and success. We hope you know how much we appreciate your support and we are very grateful for the friendships we have made over the years.
I Hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving and enjoyed time with family and friends.. And I hope all of you have aMerry Christmas and a Happy Holiday season!!
I should have a live inventory next week. I had some issues with some bands and had to order a few more, as soon as they get here I will get the inventory complete and post it live. It has turned cold here the last few days. We will loft fly the birds everyday that the weather allows and start training in a month or so. Birds are healthy and look great.
I hope all of you are enjoying the fall One Loft Races and having good luck in some of them.. Everything is going good here at the loft.. Birds are loft flying everyday and I have been flagging them for about 30 mins two or three times a week.. I am almost done with chipping all the birds and will have some inventories soon. We have had a few hawks hit the birds and am sure we are down a few. The ones I know of the owners have been contacted.
