EXTREME SMOKE IN VALLEY
Good Morning,

We won't be tossing this morning due to extreme smoke in the valley. Visibility is only at a couple of miles. As soon as the smoke clears we'll get the birds back and going. Thanks for you understanding. We want to do what is right for the birds.

TRAINING UPDATE 9/8/2022

Breeders, 

 
We did a training toss from 43 miles this morning and when the birds started arriving we noticed the sensor pad wasn't plugged in entirely (slightly loose) so as the birds trapped it didn't pick them up. We kicked the birds back out and reset the sensor pad connection so they'll trap in and be clocked that way you can see an inventory. We apologize for the inconvenience. We'll have them back down the road again tomorrow morning.

ACTIVATION AND TRAINING UPDATE Hello Breeders,

We will look to continue training the birds from our 43 mile station. We are re-evaluating doing the activation race on either the 24th of September or the 1st of October and we'll make the call based on how the birds are doing. We would like to get about 10 tosses from our 43 mile Jackpot location because as we move past Jackpot the birds start encountering mountain ranges. We want the birds to have every chance to be successful as they encounter the mountains on this course. If the birds make a navigation mistake from 40 miles they are still usually going to be able to make it home and learn from the experience which will help as we move past that point. This decision is being made in the best interest of the birds and we felt like sticking to the 17th was rushing it. 

This will allow us to get nearly 25 to 30 tosses on the birds before activation which is a decent amount considering we accepted birds until July 1st which shortens our window for training. Thank you for the support in our first year doing this. We are learning from some of our errors and hope to continue to improve the quality of this race as we move forward!

23 MILE TOSS VIDEO
Hello,
 
Here is the link to the 23 mile toss this morning!
 
 
We will take the birds to our 40 mile station tomorrow! Activation Race will be held on September 17th! We are excited to keep getting your birds down the road. We promise to continue working hard to train your birds! Also, the birds are being routinely treated for canker and cocci and we will treat them for respiratory for safe measure before the activation race. Of course, we did this before road training started as well. The weather is staying warm as we’ve had a heat advisory for several days.

SWITCHING TO NEW CLOCK Hello Breeders,

We are switching to a new clock this week. We just can't continue to have the clock miss birds for you the breeders. 

Over the past month we would like to have posted loft flying more frequently so you can see what is going on with your birds. We slowed the frequency of posting to wincompanion down due to the clock issues as it is problematic to post online results that aren't accurate. We aren't going to fight it anymore and we'll be switching to a new clock as we want to do right by our customers. The new system will work much better and will be in the loft later this week. If you have specific questions reach out directly. We thank you the breeders in our race for your patience in this matter. 

We will continue to train birds this week and once the clock is installed we will do an updated inventory and continue pushing the birds down the road so they are ready for the races. Thanks!
