WED. OCT. 12TH, 2022 UPDATE

Good afternoon pigeon fanciers,

We've officially closed the MAIN RACE today.  We have 142 birds that have returned and that is the inventory we will use at this point.  Any other birds that do return now, we will reach out to the owner and let them know.

Please connect with Rick in the next week or 2 regarding pick up plans.  His cell is 905-329-5139.  You are welcome to message us through email or Facebook Messenger, but I will be the one answering and will likely link you to call his cell :)

Congratulations again to all of our winners in both the MAIN RACE as well as PREP RACES.

Payouts and certificates will be sent out in the near future.  Remember for future races, if you're here on the day of the race, we are GREEN ON THE SCENE...as we payout those winners present!

Look forward to seeing some of you soon, with pick ups happening, and continuing to stay in touch for our plans for next year.

Have a great week everyone,

Jeane (aka "The 1st Pigeon Lady")

AND THEY'RE READY...

Evening all

The birds have been basketed and they are ready to go 300 miles!

180 are in there and as always, Rick handled each bird to check them over before basketing them.

Excited for tomorrow - weather looks good for the race...might be a slight shoulder wind coming from the west.  We'll see in the morning.

Hope to see you here - if not, stay tuned online for the results!  And remember, top 30 spots for payout, with our additional special prize for the last bird to clock on the day of the race...$500.

Good luck to everyone!

Good afternoon flyers,

I've posted the current inventory for the birds as it sits now.  Look under the TRAINERS tab in wincompanion for this list.

We will be basketing the birds tonight after a good Thanksgiving dinner.

I'll keep you posted as to the basketing!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone,

SATURDAY UPDATE

Good evening all

Rick will be doing an inventory that I will be posting tomorrow...this way you'll see which birds are here as a few have returned that we believe have been missing since before the last prep race.

We will be basketing the birds on Sunday night for the MAIN RACE on Monday!

We welcome any spectators to the main race, and a couple of reminders are:

*Bring your own lawn chairs

*Please leave your pets at home, as we have a few wandering animals that we'd like to keep loose for the day

*Facilities onsite 

*Niagara Peninsula OLR merchandise will be for sale 

*Light snack will be served 

 

Have a great weekend and see you Monday!

WED. OCT. 5TH UPDATE

Evening all,

I've closed off PREP RACE #3 and the results are in wincompanion.  Congratulations to the winners, and all of the winners from the 3 prep races that were held!

We have our eyes set on Mon. Oct. 10th as our MAIN RACE day.  Rick will be orchestrating a 300 mile release this year, remember this means 340 miles for the birds coming around the lake.  We welcome anyone who wishes to join us on the day to watch for the birds to return.

Rick has been loft flying and will continue to do so until the race.  He plans on a short training toss either tomorrow (Thursday) or Friday.

Stay tuned for an INVENTORY in the next day or two as there have been a couple of birds return - who didn't go to the third prep race.

Have a great week!

PREP RACE #3 NORTH BAY - GREAT RETURNS!

Hi everyone

We had great returns this afternoon - check out the wincompanions RESULTS for the LIVE clocking, which is still underway.

There's 166 birds clocked as of about 4pm.  I will continue to keep the clock running to catch any later birds who return home.

Our plan is still on for the MAIN RACE to be held next Mon. Oct. 10th from Englehart - of course, as always, weather dependent.

Enjoy the rest of your Monday, and we'll keep you updated with current inventory as the week goes on.

Thanks,

Jeane (aka "The 1st Pigeon Lady")

BIRDS ARE UP! PREP RACE #3

Morning!

The birds are up at 8:45am from North Bay.  Was sunny with no head wind on the release.  Looking at the weather it looks like a slight head wind at the beginning of the race and there should be a tail wind at the end.

Good luck to everyone!
