TRAINING TOSS SEPT 23RD

Hi all,

 

Trying to get the birds a little more familiar with the more northern direction of this next race.

 

This is the 2nd training toss from Derry Road (and eighth line).

 

Rick is planning on 2 more tosses before the race, weather permitting of course.p

 

Look for the results of this toss later today.

 

Thanks!

 

Jeane (& Rick)

INVENTORY UPDATE

Hi all,

 

Just want to make sure you knew - we didn't blow away today and the birds are getting quite the breeze today!

 

We have a few birds that are not on the inventory list that we posted earlier this week (on the 18th).

 

Please connect with either Rick or myself if you have any questions.

 

We will be posting another inventory this weekend.

 

Thanks,
Jeane & Rick

IT'S UP!

Hi all,

 

After a long haul - it's finally up.  We had some issues with birds that are still here but not entered into the Engelhart race showing up in the inventory.  I've finalized it now - as of 8:30pm tonight (Tuesday)

 

Feel free to see that your bird is entered.

 

There are 71 entries with 46 lofts participating.

 

Any questions - you know where we are!

 

Thanks again for your patience,

PROMISED INVENTORY

Hi all - yes indeed I'm tardy with our inventory list.

 

I'm trying to link my and Rick's schedules to get all this stuff done.   A little hard some days.

 

He just confirmed the list is on the module - so I'm going to download it shortly.

 

Thanks for your patience...

HUGE THANK YOU

Well this morning I think my brain has finally caught up to my daily routine and I have some great thinking going on today...about time!

I've been a little delayed with this - but I wanted to put out a HUGE thank you to the Niagara Region Pigeon Club and their assistance with our big race day this weekend.  The members and the honorary members (spouses :) ) did a tremendous job of helping us through this whole process once again this year.

We really couldn't have done it without all of you.

A special thank you to the wives that created and brought forth the wonderful gift baskets we used as door prizes...thank you, thank you, thank you!

You are amazing people that we call friends.

 

Have a great Tuesday everyone!

THE DAY AFTER

Hi all,

 

Rick and I are sitting here reminiscing about yesterday - and just realized something when looking at the birds that returned home.

The last bird that came home yesterday - in our one day race - was Terry Wintle's pigeon.

Terry would have wanted to see all the birds returned home in good health - and I think he did that with his bird being the last bird to ensure they returned home safely.

Have a smile after that one.

 

Thanks for all your support and have a great night.

THANK YOU EVERYONE!

Wow - what a great day!

Rick and I couldn't have been happier with how the day went...with the exception of needing sweatshirts and sweatpants to keep warm!

We paid out all those pigeon fanciers that were on the scene - as our promise of paying "GREEN ON THE SCENE".

 

Congratulations to our winners, especially our

1st place winner

R S Wiltshire

 

Also, we announced a new award this year:

Terry Wintle Memorial Award 

This award was presented to the 31st place pigeon racer, which this year was Carl Gauvin.  Terry would've wanted more winners if possible, so we saw it fit to make this award for the 31st place, the first racer placing after all the payout spots.

 

With respect to the Engelhart race - Saturday September 29th, 2018 - we have already registered many of the birds that returned home today (135/140 so far - great return!) so if you are interested in sending your bird that has returned from the race today - please connect with via email or phone to register them as soon as possible!

 


We want to thank everyone for their positive spirits and great feedback to make next year, our 3rd Annual Niagara Peninsula One Loft Race, the best yet.

 

Thanks to all!

 

Jeane & Rick
