As the season goes on, they keep climbing the ladder, but the first two races drop my ave. speed big time. I think I placed 4th ave speed in our combine this yr but could have been alot better with a couple faster 125's
Yeah I did have a late start with my young birds this year but even with the late start my other birds made the eventual club champ look like a chump the first few weeks. With the slow start the first 2 weeks I picked it up with a 3rd and a 5th in the 2 150 mile races with one of my hens. She wound up 9th in champion points. The funny thing about the champ I didn't even really know who he was until he took 5th place in the 200 mile race the 5th week of the season since I never clocked him b4 that. I actually thought he was a hen because he was so small and I never really paid enough attention to him to realize he was a cock. As for you not doing as good in the first races IDK I usually do good in the first 2 races but this year I didn't which I thought was gonna get me but my birds came around and get to where they needed to be after that they were up there each week I didn't win any of the the club races but I was right there. The only race I won this yb season was the auction race from another club wher i was 1st and 5th. But if I had to pick a race to win it was a good one since the 5,500 I won made me atleast walk away with a lil profit for the season.

But then we got to the longer races 200 miles or more and he was in the top 10 in the club for 4 races in a row 2 200's a 250 and a 300. Now that bird if he was there he might have never got his chance because of his poor results to start the season. I had another bird who would be the first bird home on almost every training toss and I only clocked her as my first bird in a race once.
Please send birds I know the system is not perfect but as soon as the bird shows me something he/she moves from the trainers to race team. In order to stay on the race team they need to keep performing. After each race, birds will be going back and forth (trainers/racers) based on how they performed that week. I know it is not ideal or a one loft set up but I think it will still be a lot of fun.

EGGCELLENT! I'm so glad this all seems to have worked out just fine! Thank you to all the participants this year, all those who have posted here, and especially to Flapdoodle for doing all the "heavy lifting"! Good luck to all of you and your birds in the 2011 Pigeon-Talk Classic!
