THE SALEM SPECIAL 650 KM RESULTS

   One hundred and twenty three birds were released just over 650 KM from the loft at 8 AM Monday morning. The sky was bright, hardly a breeze was blowing and only the tiniest bit of cloud could be seen floating by. The temperature was 4 C. The bids left quickly heading straight south, strung out in a wide front. On the way home they encountered a stiff side wind for 200 KM and then a slight head wind the rest of the way. 

   The first group home were 4 on the drop flying flying 1188 MPM. There was a previously lost bird waiting for them on the roof who thought he would get in on the band wagon, but he didn't. It wasn't long to wait for 6 more to drop followed by another drop of 10. There were 38 home on the day and 70 birds home in race time. We'll do inventory at the end of the week to see who made it home.

   Congatulation to the money winners and all the birds back in time.

THURSDAY , SEPTEMBER 29, 2022

   The birds are flying around the loft with extra energy that I am happy to tap into. They flew for 2 hours Monday morning, 1:45 0n Tuesday morning plus 2 hours on Wednesday. Every afternoon they have open loft and most get an extra hour in at that time. This morning they are 43 KM from home. Tomorrow they will be 70 KM from home. On Sunday I will take them to Smoothrock Falls for the Salem Special 650 KM which will be held on Monday, October 2. It wll be a tough race with 8 KM headwinds all the way home. Your welcome to come and watch, just let us know. There are no facilities, just trees to hide behind.

Rick

PS  They late comers are in perty good shape. They are flying with the flock, no fence sitters, and they are training with the gang. Also, check the average speed to see where you stand.

THE SALEM SPECIAL 550 KM MAIN RACE.

   It was picture perfect!!!!  

   The birds were released in La Sarre Quebec at 7:45 AM The sky was bright and clear. There were two other trailers that also released at about the same time. One in La Sarre and the other about 40 KM east. Our birds minded their own business and came straight home. Seven hours of sweaty palms and upset stomach all for naught.

   The first birds arrived well before I expected them and right in the middle of my efforts at barbacuing.  Eleven on the first drop with ten more just behind them. A third group showed up quickly after that and the rest just kept a coming. We had 97 on the day and 7 more on the very nasty and wet morning after.  Three strays also came to us and they trapped as fast as our own.

   Congratulations to all that came home and especially to those that are money winners.

SALEM SPECIAL 550 KM

   The birds were released into clear, cool skies above La Sarre, Quebec. Ron and Joyce released them at 7:45 AM. There were two other trailers in the area but they didn't see any other birds in the sky. The wind will push our birds further east helping them pick a better path home. Good luck to all.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20,2022

   The birds are exercising well, twice a day. They are now roaming a bit so it's time for a short toss. On Thursday we will take them 80 KM and Friday they will be loaded up for the 550 KM race from La Sarre, Quebec on Saturday.

SALEM SPECIAL 450 KM RESULTS

    The birds were released into a cool but bright sky. The birds left quickly, in one group, turning straight south. There was very little wind. The wind increased in strength and turned from north to south into north to south west. At home gusts were strong and often. All the birds arrived from south west, coming back up from Lake Ontario. It turned from a lovely day for a race into a lovely day for a marathon. 

   Congratulations to all that made it home and especially to the prize winning front runners.

THE SALEM SPECIAL 450 KM

   Weather, this time of year, is an obstacle that is sometimes difficult to handle. On top of that, the removal of Covid restrictions has resulted in a billion people travelling all over the far north of Quebec and Ontario. With rain moving east and with every hotel and motel in western Quebec booked solid, we have decided to release the birds on Thursday in Englehart Ontario. Ron and Joyce Martin are taking the birds this trip. They will release along hwy 11 on the north end of Englehart at 8 AM Thursday, September 15, weather allowing of course. Our main race was to be next Sunday but now the long range weather forecast is threatening to ruin that day so we will have our race on Saturday, September 24, just to be on the right side of caution. 

 Yesterday we handled all the birds and removed 8 strays from the group. We are the cross road for a couple or three combines and each week we get more and more stopovers. There are four birds with bumbs, bruises and the need of a few more days off. They will be ready for the next race.

CU  4946, 5930, 22075 and 4061 are at home.

Good luck to everyone tomorrow.

TUESDAY, SEPT 13,2022

   The birds have been out flying twice a day since the race last Friday. Yesterday was the first day that all had a decent loft fly. An hour and fifteen minutes in the AM and an hour in the afternoon. We took them for a short toss this morning and they came home very quickly. So did the hawks which kept them away from the loft for what seems forever. Tomorrow we will take them 70 KM for the race on Friday, Sept. 16. Our main race will be held on Sunday, Sept. 25. We will serve food, let us know if you are coming.

Rick

Sep-12-2022
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 12,2022

   The bird are doing well. They loft fly each day, morning and afternoon. Very little encouragement is needed to keep them flying. If the weather holds out, we will have the 450 race on Thursday or Friday this week. It will be from Val-d'Or, Quebec. A short toss will be flown on Tuesday.
