News and Updates

Good evening everyone

Rick did a loft fly with the birds today and clocked them in as they came in the coop.

I've posted the inventory for you as a trainer - so far 301 are clocked in.

Rick is still planning for the 25km toss tomorrow morning and we will set up the clock for that as well.  I'll keep you posted as to the release time and location and promise to upload the results asap, in the early evening tomorrow!

Have a great night and see you soon!

Good morning all

I've closed the training toss results this morning from yesterday.  There were no new birds clocked from after my late afternoon update on Facebook Live.

Rick is planning another toss tomorrow (Friday morning), of course dependent on the weather, from about 25km.  From there, we'll starting increasing the distance.

The clock will be on for the results and I will upload them when I am home in the later part of the afternoon!

Thanks for your support everyone and have a great night,

Good morning flyers

Rick took advantage of an early morning (basketed the birds at around 4am) and took the birds for a training toss.  There is rain in the forecast for the day so he planned well.  Clearly I wasn't up at 4am to finalize the toss from yesterday - so the list as it is from last night stands.

Rick released them from 20km this morning at 7am and he beat them home driving.  Then they started to arrive, a couple here, a couple there...then a large group - which caught my eye from inside the house.  I did manage to catch the large group on video and immediately posted to facebook - I'll see what I can do about getting it on the GALLERY on the website today.

The clock will stay running until I come home from work later today.  At that point I will update the results again.  Currently as I shut my computer off (8am) - there are 249 clocked with many birds flying about outside and on the landing board.  There is slight rain starting now.

Here's to a cloudy, yet warm again, day.  Update you later this afternoon!

Good morning everyone,

I've posted the 19 page arrival report from yesterday's 15km Training Toss in the Gallery (GALLERY TAB on the main HOME page) on the website.

Please review as your leisure!

Today - will hopefully, cross your fingers, capture a different look for the results.  I anticipate I will be able to upload a simple scan of the birds into the online program and you'll be able to see your birds much easier!

Thanks again for the patience.  I will also post these results from yesterday on Instagram and Facebook this morning for your reference.

Hi everyone

I've struck out the race with 291 birds in the clock - as there are some data issues with our clocking system.

I was able to speak to our support in Oregon and we have a new plan for tomorrow/Wednesday.

Stay tuned - and we'll see how our next one goes.  We're going to do the scan of the birds a little easier (with a loft fly and then scan only when they cross over the pads...)

I have the paper copies of the "15km training toss" today - with all 291 birds and their logged times.  I will post in the morning.  Again, apologies - I'm trying my best.



Good morning

Just wanted to write a quick note to let you know that I've uploaded the inventory print off from unikon - to the GALLERY tab on the website.  Scroll to the bottom of the Gallery pictures and you will see the listing there.

I will continue to work on the basketing list - and when I am home this evening, I will upload the 15km training toss results tonight.

Thanks for your patience!

Evening everyone,

We are currently completing the inventory (what should be the basketing list) for the open race that's listed in wincompanion.

My hopes are that the basketing list pulls through - but I'm not having much luck.  I ensure you that this will be working by prep race time (hopefully sooner)...I can scan the basketing list for your reference that I will put in the Gallery section/tab on the website and I will post on Facebook as a post as well tomorrow morning.

More tosses planned for this week - I'll keep you posted as the days go.

Hope everyone had a great evening!

Good morning flyers,

Well I made the attempt to pull the training toss over this morning - to capture all the birds that have clocked (321)...but no luck.

Rick and I are doing the weekly inventory on Sunday this weekend, so there will be an updated list at that point.

Sorry that I can't update for this 5km toss - I will look at the birds that are missing from the clock and update those accordingly.

Stay cool - it's another muggy one here today.

Have a great day and weekend...see you soon on Facebook Live!

Hi again

Just FYI - I've updated the entire bird list and have all missing birds now listed in the "Lost Birds" report - that you can find in wincompanion if you click on the "BIRDS" link and then the drop down option of "Lost Birds".

You can also just search your birds (select your loft name in the Birds Listing in wincompanion) and you will see which ones are marked missing.

If they continue to be missing on the 2nd time clocking a trainer - the next thing to do is change the designation to "LOST".  I will try and stay on it.  I will definitely mark the bird back to "YES" if it returns at anytime - that is the most important thing.

Keeping you up to date!
