TRAINING FOR SUPERIRD

We had a problem with clock however it is solved.  On the training it has an inventory for Dec. 3, that is actually a 55 mile toss.  Our next toss won't be until Wednesday due to bad conditions on Monday and Tuesday.  Weather for the race on Saturday looks good.

Again get your $100/bird in if you want your bird(s) to go to the 360mi. Superbird Race.  Good luck to all!

55 MILE TOSS TODAY

We had a 55 mile toss today however there was a clocking error that was not able to be corrected.  The toss went just fine, all birds are home and doing well.  We will be training again on Monday if weather permits it.  See previous update for activating your bird(s) for our Superbird Race.

TRAINING FOR SUPERBIRD

The weather this week has not been ideal, we went today but waited until 10:10.  High clouds with sun peaking out.  Will train again Monday, weather permitting.  Tuesday has some rain predicted so we may only get 2 tosses in before race.  The race is Saturday, Dec. 10 from 365 miles, our birds will be released with California Classic and Royal Cup birds.  

If you haven't activated your bird(s) for the race please do so asap.  Activation in $100/bird.  Right now we have @ 190 birds activated and I expect we will end up with @250.  The prize fund already has $14,000 from 300 mi. race plus estimated $25,000 from activation.  So total prize fund should be @35-40,000.  Good luck to all.  Send activation fee to Steve Miner, 3511 Rolling Hills Ln., Bonita, Ca. 91902.

200 MI. RACE/NANEZ FAM. LET-AUCTION

Announcing Nanez family Loft will be having a 15 bird auction on Sunday, Nov. 27 at the Royal Cup final race.  Most pigeon flyers know how succesful Rick Nanez has been in one loft races the past few years.  Unfortunately Rick's health has not been good and he is down-sizing, auctioning off some of his top notch birds.  We thank Rick for this opportunity.
