Hello Everyone, 

I am pretty happy with the way the birds have been doing the past 3 races. This is a tough course with all the mountains and mountain passes that they have to navigate. 
This has been the toughest year in the 13 years that I have been doing this race to collect Entry fees. I don't know if Covid has affected people and they are having a tough time coming up with the money or what is going on? I have been told that some checks were sent 3 weeks ago and I still have not received them.  Here is what I have as of now, which is what we will go with.  If any other Entry fees come in before the 300 mile race I will adjust. Some birds will be pulled out of the race if not paid ASAP!! 

I have 558 birds paid for

($111,600) - %10 for Spring Break Race=$100,440

Leaves for total payout of $100,440 -$1000 for the 200 mile 1st bird to trap

%50 for 350 mile Race =$49,720

%25 for 300 mile Race =$24,860

%25 for Average Speed =$24,860

2ND RACE 200 MILES

Congrats to Golden State Syndicate on having the 1st bird to trap on the 2nd Race and winning $1000. This course is not an easy course and these birds will be tested even more as they get out further in distance.  Tenitive plans are to train tomorrow and race Wednesday for the 3rd race.  we have been having some pretty bad wether here this past week and this upcoming week is looking not so great also.  So this will be the plan unless the weather changes.  Best of Luck Everyone.

The power bumped on todays training. The clock has clocked everything but I can't get wincompanino to rebut with the clock. I am working on the fix and hopefully it will reconnect and show all the birds.

LOFT UPDATE

Hello Everyone,

I don't know why the training yesterday was as tough as it was, we did have a 10-12 mph headwind with a little overcast.  I am not quite sure why it was as hard as it was. Hopefully some more of the birds missing show up today.  We have a little storm front coming in this weekend so we will try to get a short training Friday or Saturday and the 100mile activat race will be Sunday or Monday weather permitting. Entry fees are due for all birds that return from the 100 mile toss.  Please get your $200 per bird in before the 1st race of 150 miles that will be 7 days after the 100 mile toss.  There is not an extra fee for the colored bird race. I pay that money out of my pocket for that.

You can send Entry fees to 

Spring Break Race

PO Box 331

Beaver Ut 84713
