TRAINING TOSS

The 50 mile training toss listed for 09/20/17 was actually the 75 mile trainiing toss we thought we had lost. The clock was not yet set up to reflect the correct time but you can use it to see how the birds arrived from 75 miles on that date.

 

The actual release time was 8:55AM and the arrivals began at 10:20:09 AM. The clock was still set up as 6hrs. fast when compared to actual time.

Terry will post the training list showing the birds and their arrival times.

Weather on arrival - Clear hot 80 degrees Wind NE 5

TRAINING TOSS

We were finally able to get a 50 mile training toss posted. We did not get everything correct as far as time as the clock was not yet set up correctly and we had not entered all the proper information. The important thing is you can see the order of arrival and the list of remaining birds in the loft. We also had a 75 mile training toss last week but we somehpw managed to lose the information.

We plan to take the birds at least 50 miles tomorrow and hopefully all will go well and we will have the results posted by Thursday.

This is our first season and it certainly is a learning experience. We appreciate your patience as we slowly but surely become familiar with things.  The birds are doing good at this time and we plan to hold the 100 mile activation race early next week. 

Foe those not that familiar with using the website, the training toss is found under results, which is listed at the top of the website.
