383 birds went out at 7:15 this morning from McDermitt,Nevada 250 miles. Bright and sunny skies , calm, and 43 degrees. Along the course we see the same with variable winds less than 3.  At the loft about noon it's calling for clear skies, NE winds to 6 and temperatures near 70 .  Get 'em home.

NO RACE THIS WEEK

After today's toss at 80 miles you are probably wondering what is the plan.   Because we are now getting out there in miles there are of course more weather patterns to deal with . Tomorrows scheduled race day has good release conditions however the  last 125 miles has predicted rain.  Sunday isn't good at the release site.  We'll go for next week as the weather seems to be stabilizing.

TRAINING UPDATE

Good morning, 

 Smoke from fires has been blanketing  the area about 25-50 miles out, and then Temps in the 100's this week on top of that, have pretty much shut down training here.  I'm guessing with the predicted winds over the next couple days we will see improved conditions, and training will resume Sunday.  The activation race will take place in the next 10-14 days.  Have a great weekend,  Paul
