MOUNT FOREST PREP RACE

Good morning everyone

 

Rick is doing a prep race this morning from Mount Forest.

 

We are attempting a live clocking - as I am at work and doing so remotely.

 

Please stayed tuned for results...they may be slightly delayed but we are crossing our fingers it works smoothly.

 

Thanks,
Jeane

TRAINING TOSS

Morning,

 

Rick went north of Guelph this morning and released the birds at 7am.

 

Birds came back in a big group - some went in right away and some stayed flying for roughly 15-20 minutes, then decided to come in the coop.

 

Hopefully weather permitting - Mount Forest training toss on Wednesday this week.

ABOUT THAT RACE NEXT WEEK!

Hi all,

 

Figured I'd start throwing some details out about next weekend.

 

The race is set to go on Sunday, September the 9th.  We plan on releasing the birds mid morning - of course dependent upon the weather and wind.  We are aiming for a return to be around 2pm.

 

Everyone is welcome to join us for the afternoon.

 

There will be a free bbq with hamburgers and hotdogs.  

 

There will be some young birds for sale that have been donated from various flyers.  Also we will be having many door prizes, games, and a 50/50 raffle.

 

Please bring a lawn chair and umbrella if you wish - there are many trees for shade and 2 large tents will be up...but you may want an umbrella if you decide to sit in the sun!

 

Please refrain from bringing any pets as our farm is quite busy with animals!

 

We look forward to seeing you next weekend!

 

Cheers,
Jeane & Rick

OUR FRIEND

It is with heavy hearts that we inform you of the passing today of our great friend and pigeon fancier, Terry Wintle.

 

Please keep his wife Lexa and their family in your thoughts and prayers.

 


I will post any information I can, as able.

Evening everyone 

 

Rick had a good training toss this morning.

 

It was windy but it didn’t seem to bother the birds.

 

Look for an inventory at the end of this week.

BIRD UNASSIGNED

Hello again,

 

Looks like the birds are coming home much better this morning - always a wonderful thing!

 

Just FYI - I'm seeing Paul Gauvin's bird is coming up unassigned - and I'm on it...fixing that today - but not messing with the live clocking - so you'll see the change later.

 

Thanks, and keep watching for them to return!

 

Jeane
