FINAL RACE UPDATE

Well this years race series is in the books.. Congratulations to the 9 birds on the drop on the final race.  Sin City Loft, Sam Haslem, Easter Pearl Loft, Pat Gazaway, Richard and Carmen Gale, Cliff Jayben, CCPC Loft and Powerstroke Loft. It has been very interesting watching these birds come home this year.  I have been doing this race for 13 years and have never had pigeons come in as high in altitude as these birds did on almost every training and every race.  I mean they were so high most people couldn't even see them.  Also I want to Congratulate Eastern Pearl Loft for having the Overall average speed pigeon this year.  This course that we fly here is as tough as it gets... High Mountains and if they don't pick the right pass they are in the wrong valley and have to cross 8,000 to 10,000 ft mountains to get back on track.  If you get a bird to compete and finish this course you have a good one for the stock loft. 
I will start Mailing birds back over the next couple of weeks, if you won more than $600 I will need a W9 form before I can send your winnings back. Please email me if you want your birds sent back and include where you want them sent.  
We are accepting birds for next years race NOW until August.  
I would also like to Thank all of you for supporting us over the years!! We have made a ton of friends from running this race. There are a lot of great people out there in the world of pigeon racing!! We wish all of you the best and hope you all stay safe during these crazy times.  At least we still have pigeon racing to give us something to do.  

Thank You

RACE UPDATE

Well last race was the 1st time in doing this race that we had over 20 birds on the drop in any 300 or 350 mile race.  I have been doing this race over 10 years.  The birds did really well on a great day for a race.  Remember that this course is a tough course.  I believe it is one of the toughest in the country.  Big mountain passes to navigate and winds 95% of the time make for producing some great birds that go on to make breeders that will produce!! 

We are looking to have the final race middle of next week.  I will decide in the next day or two and let everyone know.  We are sad that we can't have all of you over for a big lunch and to watch the birds come home.  Nothing beats having friends over to BS with and talk pigeons.  Hopefully this craziness passes soon and we can return to normal life.  

Good Luck to All and I hope you all stay safe and Healthy!!

RACE 4 UPDATE

It looks like the best day to race will be tomorrow Friday.  Other wise the next 5-6 days will have 20+mph winds.  So we will have race 4 tomorrow.  Due to Covid 19 and the social distancing that we are being affected by We will only have a 4-5 people at the Loft on race days.  I would love to have more of you here to enjoy watching the birds come home and talking with you, but I don't want to get in trouble and don't want you to get in trouble either.  
Best of Luck Everyone!!

RACE UPDATE

Hello Everyone,

 

Well what a tough race this one was.  The 1st bunch of birds did really good but a lot of birds really struggled.  The day was forecasted to be a great day but after I released the birds and got Travelling back home about 40 miles from the loft a cold front came in with low thick clouds and fog not much of any moisture in it only had to turn the wipers on a couple times.  I dont know if this affected the birds or what did. Congrats to Nebo Loft (Greg Gurney)  for having the 1st and 3rd bird in the race! We will try and train a couple times this week. The weather looks to be windy so I'll keep you posted on when the next race will be!
