Tomorrow is our 200 young bird race. Now they are predicting rain early in the morning.
I've been using my top OB's my 2 time winner and my other Hall of Fame bird as kickers to train my YB's and I wouldn't want those OB's flying any races this time of the year they are missing so many feathers. I couldn't see shipping them out to fly a 400 mile race.

Hope you don't gain 10 pounds before the long races eating all that chocolate. Will give them an advantage coming over those mountains in the longer races.

Those birds only fly good if there is money in the race. Hard to judge a bird by a 100 mile toss. Seen some birds buzz the loft from 100 miles and then go out routing. Am concerned about the ones not back yet. Good to get them up with the whole flock.
lol .....

I updated the trapping time. I left the seconds off because I was lazy. For the races I will post the actual race sheet.

Our results were pretty normal compared to everyone else with one exception. Mr 2nd place AU for YB the past two years had 54 birds trap in less then a minute. It helps that he sent 90+ birds. He took every spot on the first page of the results.

Everyone else had birds scattered like we did. The loft we train with sent 43 and was out 10 at knockoff. We had four more show up tonight. Hopefully we can pick up more in the morning. Being it was just the club we could of had a few more trap in other lofts. I will keep my fingers crossed for the others.

I believe the guy who did the release took some video. I will see if we can upload it.

These short races are unpredictable. Anything can happen. It's good to get one out of the way.

Its a good thing this was the first race or I would have lost the bet, and I still may.

Only one of the rc's came home, late but home his nest mate is the same way.

WoooHooo!!! COV 26 made it home! We will be more than happy with a second place! Walt, are you having Tom hold COV100 back Just to give us some false hope that we (Russ and Josiah) will come out on top? I am still holding out hope that COV28 will make an appearance.
On a side note, Josiah and I are off to the Lorain County Fair today! We will be camping out there all week (not my cup of tea) but we will have a good time. Josiah is showing a Russian High flier pair for 4-H. He is stepping up to the plate this year and showing 3 pigeons in the open barn. 2 homers and a pigmy pouter. His judging starts tomorrow.
