TRAINING TOSS 1

We stopped short with clocking today to correct birds showing foreign and breeder identity in the clock and on the computer.

Had to call in the troops. Mr. Terry Gilmore helped "the rookie" get thought the process.

Tomorrow will be Training Toss 2 at the same place.

Thank you for your support.

HELLO BREEDERS

Good morning. 

Bird count is at 267 birds. Breeder count at 65. 3 birds register as foreign. 10 birds show as scanned but no breeder name.  That will be corrected on Saturday with the hand scan and inventory brought up to date.

We will be loading birds in the baskets for their first toss on Saturday after hand scan. Live clocking on all tosses will begin.

Mike will have me post an update on payouts for the first two races sometime next week. A tentative training and race schedule will also be presented so all can see how things are going to be set up.

Good luck to everyone.

THREE GROUPS ARE NOW ONE

There is one main group now flying at TOP BREEDERS CHALLENGE.

All Birds were let out yesterday as one main group. Besides smoke, coopers and falcons the birds are doing well. 

The birds are let out everyday. The training baskets are set up for the birds to go in and out while in the loft. 

If all goes well and according to plans the birds will be on the road sometime around the first of the month.

LIVE CLOCKING ON WINCOMPANION should start by the end of this week. Thank you for your patience.

 

("patience"  The capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset.)

 

Thank you.

THE SMOKE HAS CLEARED.

The net is down and group 3 will be testing their wings. The body moult is going crazy and the birds are healthy. Groups 1 and 2 which are really 1 group are routing everytime they are let out. 

 Hopefully they start gaining control of the fires up North and the smoke stays away. Good Luck to all the Firefighters battling these fires.

Good luck to all. Live clocking on the internet coming soon.
