Update on the 5th Race 300 miles
The weather is not favorable to race this week with 2 major fronts working through Kansas and Oklahoma. The weather is either looking bad in Kansas or here in Oklahoma with the first front coming through today and backing up tomorrow. Ice, snow and freezing rain predicted along the coarse and here at one end or the other along with high winds. I did manage to give the birds a 40 mile toss this weekend and hopefully get another one in if I can catch a day good enough to do so. I will update as soon as I can go. Thank you
200 MILE RACE UPDATE

The winds are gusting north up to 30 mph at the moment. 2 of the 3 stations say they will not subside till midday or later tomorrow. I will train tomorrow afternoon if the winds subside. The Forecast is calling for light winds and sun for Friday so we will try and go Friday. We flew the 150 just last weds so Friday is great. I got a 70 mile toss on the birds yesterday and will hopefully get a good toss tomorrow if the winds subside in time. Much better working race ahead.

RACE 3 UPDATE CONTINUED
Forgot to mention that we will post a payout for Race 3 which is our first money race. It will pay 5 places.  The birds listed with a green dot are the birds who entered into the sprint average speed prior to the first race. the payout for the sprint is 1,250.00 it pays 50-30-20 to 1st, 2nd , 3rd.
1st champion sprint average speed after the 1st 3 races = 625.00

RACE 3 UPDATE

The birds flew Race 2 on the 24th . They were given a 70 mile toss yesterday and did well although some over flew a little. As of now it looks like we will go tomorrow but I will take a look at the weather tonight to finalize. Please check this update to confirm after 11:00 pm news and weather tonight.

UPDATE ON RACE 2

TODAY THE WINDS WERE 40 MPH ! YESTERDAY THEY WERE CLOSE TO 30 MPH. WE DID GET TWO GOOD HEAD WIND TOSSES ON THE BIRDS THOUGH.  A 50 AND A 40 MILE TRAINING TOSS. I WOULD HAVE LIKED TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GIVE ANOTHER 50 AT LEAST BUT THE WINDS WERE JUST TO STRONG. OUR PLAN IS TO HAVE THE SECOND RACE ON WEDS WITH LIGHT HEADWINDS  AND CLEAR SKY. WE WILL POST A BASKET LIST PRIOR TO THE RACE. THURSDAY IS OK IF THE FORECAST IS CHANGED WITH ONLY 15 MPH HEAD WINDS. THEN WE ARE LOOKING AT THE 3RD RACE FOR THE FOLLOWING MONDAY. BEST OF LUCK TO ALL

UPDATE 01-13-18
PLEASE NOTE THE CLOCK IS 1 HOUR OFF. FORGOT TO RESET THE TIME. ADJUSTED RELEASE TIME SO IT WOULD NOT AFFECT THE SPEED. THE WEATHER CALLED FOR A DISTURBANCE TODAY WITH OVERCAST POSSIBLE BUT IT LOOKED OK THIS MORNING AND ONLY CLOUDY WITH SUN BREAKING THROUGH BUT COLD.  THE WIND WAS NOT ENOUGH TO MENTIONAND THE BIRDS DID WELL BUT ARE BROKE UP NOW . I HAD THE COMPUTER SET UP FOR LIVE CLOCKING BUT IT IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY. TIMING OUT ON ME. THE BIRDS LEFT GOOD AND CAME ABOUT AS I THOUGHT THEY SHOULD BUT THEN THEY STOPPED FOR A PERIOD WITH A FEW AT A TIME AND A FEW SMALL DROPS. IT WAS NOT A BAD DAY TO FLY. I HAVE HAD SEVERAL TOSSES WHERE THE BIRDS HAVE BEEN BROKE UP THIS YEAR. THE BIRDS HAVE HAD OVER 30 TOSSES SO THEY SHOULD NOT BE HAVING THIS PROBLEM. ANYWAY, ITS BEEN ONE OF THOSE YEARS WITH THE VIRUS IN LATE AUGUST THAT I HAD PROBLEMS WITH. I WILL GO 150 IN ABOUT 6 DAYS WEATHER PERMITTING BUT WILL TRAIN SHORT UNTIL THEN EVERYDAY I CAN. NOT ALL HAVE PAID AND IF THE BIRDS ARE NOT PAID BY THE TIME I DO A BASKET LIST , THOSE PIGEONS WILL BE UP FOR ADOPTION FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE SERIES. MOST HAVE PAID AND I WAS GOING TO WAIT ANOTHER FEW DAYS BUT DECIDED TO GET THE SERIES STARTED. WE SHOULD GET MOST OF THE BIRDS HOME, NOT TO CONCERNED AT THIS POINT.

12-23-17 UPDATE

HOPE EVERYONE HAS A SAFE AND HAPPY HOLIDAY . MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR AND BEST OF LUCK TO ALL.

12-15 UPDATE

THE BIRDS HAVE TRAINED EVERYDAY AND SOMETIMES TWO A DAYS THIS PAST WEEK WITH OUTSTANDING WEATHER. EVERY TOSS WE HAD BIRDS COME GOOD AND CONTINUE TO FLY AND A FEW HAWKS TO THANK FOR THAT BUT ON THE 40 MILE MILE TOSS THE BIRDS AT RELEASE BROKE INTO TWO GROUPS AFTER A HAWK DOVE INTO THEM BEFORE THEY COULD GET THEIR BEARINGS. ONE OF THOSE GROUPS BEAT ME HOME WHILE THE OTHER BIG GROUP CAME COMPLETLY BUSTED UP WITH SMALL GROUPS AND SINGLES. LOST A FEW ON THAT ONE AND AGAIN ON THE 50 WE HAD THE MAJORITY COME FAST BUT SOME LATE ONES AGAIN. ON TODAYS TOSS THEY ALL DID SUPER AND FLEW A BIT AROUND THE LOFT ON RETURN BUT ALL CAME REALLY CLOSE TOGETHER. YOU MAY START SENDING ENTRY FEES NOW BECAUSE I SEE NO PROBLEM WITH A 75 MILE TOSS AS THE BIRDS SEEM TO BE COMING REALLY GOOD. WE WILL FLY THE 75 MILE TOSS IN A FEW DAYS , WATCHING THE WEATHER BUT WILL KEEP TRAINING REGARDLESS WHILE THE ENTRIES COME IN.  ENTRY FEES ARE 200.00 PER BIRD AND 50 .00 PER BIRD EXTRA IF YOU WANT TO FLY FOR THE EXTRA PRIZE OF CHAMPION SPRINT BIRD. THAT WILL BE FIGURED AFTER THE 1ST 3 SHORT RACES ARE DONE AND PAID OUT THEN.  YOUR BIRD WILL THEN GO ON TO FLY FOR THE OVERALL AVERAGE SPEED WHICH THE 200.00 COVERS. THIS YEAR HAS BEEN A YEAR THAT SAW THE VIRUS ATTACK THE BIRDS IN LATE AUGUST. MOST LIKELY BROUGHT IN BY A REPLACEMENT BIRD BUT NOT SURE. IT IS PART OF THE REASON I TOOK IT AS CAREFUL AS I COULD ON PUSHING THE BIRDS TO EARLY . THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IT HAS EVER HIT MY RACE BIRDS AND THERE IS NOT ANYTHING ONE CAN DO WHEN IT DOES. THERE IS NO TONIC FOR IT. THE VIRUS IS UNKNOWN SO LITTLE A HANDLER CAN DO BUT ISOLATE AND WAIT AND SEE. ALTHOUGH THERE IS NOTHING A HANDLER CAN DO, IT STILL SUCKS TO LOOSE BIRDS. FOR THAT REASON, I AM GOING TO GIVE A FREE PERCH FEE INTO THE 2018 ROUTE66RACE TO EVERY BIRD LOST UP TO TODAY, 12-14 -2017. ALSO IN 2018, WE WILL ONLY ACCEPT BIRDS FROM FEB 1ST TO MAY 1ST, NO REPLACEMENTS AFTER MAY 1ST. I HAVE HIRED AN UPDATE AND VIDEO PERSON TO TAKE OVER ALL UPDATES SO I CAN PUT ALL TIME ON THE RACE BIRDS. MANY LOFTS HAVE HAD THIS VIRUS AND I HAVE BEEN VERY LUCKY UNTIL A SMALL BOUT LAST YEAR AND A LATE BOUT THIS YEAR.

PLEASE SEND ASAP ALL ENTRIES TO ROUTE66RACE, 12601 HILLSIDE CR, EDMOND OKLAHOMA, 73034.  MAKE SURE YOU MENTION YOUR LOFT NAME AS IT IS ON WINCOMPANION.  THANK YOU AND HOPE YOU HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR. BEST OF LUCK IN THE UPCOMING SERIES!
