LOFT INVENTORY

Hello Breeders,

Hope you all are doing well.

The birds are doing just fine, healthy and looking good. Most, with their flights are fully grown, are out and about.

We have conducted a physical inventory of the birds and made any correction as needed according to the band number and the abbreviated name,

also ran a loft inventory through the clocking system for accuracy. We will conduct another clocking inventory prior to the start of training.

BTW, if you haven’t sent in your perch fee by now we encourage you to do so, as to avoid any forfeiture of your bird(s) to Triple Crown Classic by October 1st “Training Day”.. Thank You!

WE HOPE YOU ARE PLANNING TO JOIN US THE WEEK OF THANKSGIVING FOR THE BEST WEEK IN PIGEON RACING. MAKE YOUR HOTEL RESERVATIONS SOON AT THE MARRIOTT LIBERTY STATION AND MENTION YOU'RE WITH THE PIGEON RACES TO GET YOUR ROOM DISCOUNT. 

ONCE AGAIN WE LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT OF THIS VERY SENTIMENTAL 30TH TRIPLE CROWN CLASSIC.

P.S.

Ernie Borge aka Hawaiian Express passed away on Saturday September 1st.
Our condolences to Denise and family. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.

Hello Breeders,

Hope all is fine with you. Us here in San Diego, we are burning up. It's been hot since mid-July and it hasn't let up yet, the temperature is averaging 90º with some humidity which make it worse.

The birds are doing just fine, most with their flights fully grown in but we will keep them in the loft one more week just ensure all birds have grown back full flights and towards the end of the week we will conduct a physical inventory of the birds and do a dry run race to double check for accuracy.

Also, if you haven’t sent in your perch fee by now we encourage you to do so, as to avoid any forfeiture of your bird(s) to Triple Crown Classic by October 1st “Training Day”.. Thank You!

LOFT INVENTORY - BIRD STATUS
Hello Breeders,
Hope all is fine with you. Here in San Diego, It's been hot this past 2 week but the birds are doing just fine. Today we are conducting an inventory to determine if any of your birds are missing and a replacement is needed. Also this past weekend we clip flights, POX and locked up birds for 3 weeks or so, till all flights have grown back.

Please review the loft inventory and if any of your birds are lost, you may send a replacement till the end of this month.
 
A reminder, please send your perch fee before our first training to avoid your bird(s) being forfeited to Triple Crown Classic in which we become the owners of the bird(s).
 
I hope you are making plans for the greatest week of pigeon racing here in San Diego all in the week of Thanksgiving.

LOFT INVENTORY - THURSDAY 06-14-18

Hello Breeders,

The birds are doing great and in good health. Hawks are becoming a nuisance around here, and! an attempted strike on the birds this past Monday morning that scattered the birds in all direction, not known if any got hit. We will be conducting a LOFT INVENTORY on Thursday so be on the lookout for the inventory results. Breeders will be contacted if any birds are missing and to send for replacement.

We are continually making changes/updates on our breeder’s database at breeders’ request and as you will discover that on our training results you may see blank or missing breeders name. This is all due to the way Wincompanion was design that it always uses the current breeder’s database. Eventually all this will be eliminated once all correction on breeder’s information are made.

Also, please send in your birds along with your perch fee as soon as possible. Approaching deadline soon.

Thank you! Have a great day.

Best Regards,

John S. and Frankie

LOFT INVENTORY - FRIDAY 6-08-2018 DATE CHANGE

We will be conducting an inventory this FRIDAY June 8th So please check your bird band number and name if any changes or correction is to be made. But, remember that Win Companion is limited to four (4) characters only "AFTER THE AU18" (Country designator) and we try to get it as close as possible to what’s on the band number/name.

As for the birds, they are settling in just fine and are flocking together when they are in flight. No serious problem with hawks so far but they are lurking around the area.

Also, if you haven’t sent in your perch fee please do so, and a reminder, June 30th will be the deadline to send your bird(s) in and this includes any replacement if needed.

Have a Good Day!

John S. and Frankie
