News and Updates
Hey everyone, wanted to post a update on a few changes which we are making this year which are not reflected in the rules and the payout yet, should have these changes posted in the rules and payout this week.  These changes are simply being made so we can insure a final race with the majority of the birds going to the final race and having a larger payout on the final race by concentrating most of the prizes on the final race.  

The races will be as follows.

100M activation race.
161M (AVG Speed Only)
209M (1st 10 birds $500 ea)
267M (1st 20 birds $500 ea)

351M Final race
1st 100,000
2nd 50,000
3rd 20,000
4th 15,000
5th 10,000
6-10 4,000
11-20 2,000
21-30 1,000
31-50 500.00

So all we really did was take out the 300M race and put most of the prizes on the final race, which is what most breeders want anyway.  

AVG Speed
1st 5,000
2nd 4,000
3rd 3,000
4th 2,000
5th 1,000
6-15 $500 ea

These prizes are based upon 1,000 birds making it through the activation race.  At the rate we are going we should be able to achieve this.  

We wanted to make all of you aware of this before we get any closer to starting to accept birds next February.  

We are currently at 350 perches reserved.  Looks like at this pace that we may just have the second largest One Loft Race in the US next year behind the Hoosier Classic.

Also wanted to make all of you aware that we will be double vaccinating your birds this year.  When your birds arrive they will receive vaccinations for PMV and Paratyphoid, then boosters 30 days later.  It seems like most One Loft Races are not doing this, and the ones who do are fairing much better than the ones who do not.  

If anyone has any questions please give us a call, text, or email.

From one veteran to all of you veterans out there, our heartfelt thanks and admiration for your service to our great country.  I spent 20 years in the US Army, most of the men in my family also served and our daughter who currently serves in the US Air Force just returned from Afghanistan.  

Just a few days ago we reported that we were up to 100 perches reserved.  Today we are already over 200.  Word must be out on how hard we train the birds because that seems to be the one thing we keep hearing over and over when new breeders sign up, and our past breeders sign up again.  Guess that 20 years in the Army did pay off!  

Thanks again everyone and again for your support, Happy Veterans Day!

Instead of mailing out free perch certificates we decided to just email everyone individually who is owed free perches from last year's race.  We are about half done and should have all emailed over the next few days.  If you earned free perches from last year PLEASE send a few birds on top of the free ones you will be sending.  We need to come out ahead this year, we can't just keep breaking even and continue hosting this race.

Our last inventory prior to the first training toss was 8 March, 2017.  All birds who were missing from that inventory are getting free perches for 2018.  Any bird lost once training started after 8 March is not eligible for free perches.  If a breeder entered 12+ birds and all were lost BEFORE the final race, then all of those perches will be free for 2018 ONLY.  

As of typing this we are already nearing 100 perches reserved for 2018.  This WILL be one of, if not the largest One Loft Races in North America in 2018......don't miss out!

No drops, no splits, just gets too confusing and we have seen it create too many problems and arguments.  This is a clocking order only race.  We will have 10% paid out in AVG speed, 20% on the 300M, and 70% on the final 35M race with $100,000 to the first bird through the trap on the final race!

Last year we doubled our intake from the year prior, will 2018 be a 2,000+ year.....
Thanks everyone for your support and encouragement!

It was brought to our attention that some of you were having sign up issues or reserving your perches for our 2018 series.  This issue has finally been rectified now, please take a few minutes to reserve your perches at this time. 

If you are owed free perches from this year's series please be patient, free perch certificates will be sent out before Christmas.

Perch fees will be $100 per bird this year, free perch the next year if your bird does not make it to the first training toss.  Entry fee is $300 per bird due after the 100 mile activation race.  First bird through the trap on the final 350 mile race wins $100,000, no splits. 

We are expecting over 1,000 birds again this year so don't miss out on one of the biggest One Loft Races in 2018!

We had two birds turn up over the last week who still had our Taurus chips on them.  One bird looks like the picture of health and has great feather quality, the other looks like it has been out surviving on it's own but still very healthy. 

ARPU 20668 BCWF Cock

AA 14337 BB Hen

I can not look these birds up because once the series is over Terry Gilmore wipes out all the birds who did not clock on the final race. 

If someone is the owner please let me know ASAP to let me know if you want your bird returned or not.

Look over the new rules, $100,000 to the first bird on the final race.  We have quite a few excited about this so make your reservations now. 

Hope everyone is having a great summer!

Do not ship birds this year, we are not accepting until next year. 

We will send out free perch certificates some time this year before Christmas, probably much earlier. 

Sent all checks out except 3 which we were still waiting for W-9 at the time of mailing.  Received one, the other two know who they are.  We are waiting for more checks to come in, should be here any day. 

Thanks everyone for your support this year.  It was a tough one, but we got through it together.
