Route 66 Race
A tough Race today. At the release it was mostly clear with a few high clouds, 19 degrees with a Southeast head wind at 7 mph with gust of 10mph. The winds increased a little on the way home but once in Oklahoma the winds were switching around as they often do after a cold front rolls through. They were East North East on arrival and quickly turned around to SE Headwinds at 7-10 and then as of now they are straight South at about the same. The first 9 pigeons came in from the west SW direction and although they made the speeds I figured they would do the rest of the birds have been coming mostly from the East and in small groups to singles and doubles and scattered about. They had not been down as they had flown hard and were just off coarse. I’m sure we will get more birds but the winds will get even tougher from this point forward and tomorrow. Hope to get as many as we can. the clock is on and running and remain running. Congratulations to the winners today and to all the pigeons. This is flat land and there is no escaping the winds so many of the birds let it push them or over adjusted. They will have to work at it now even more so.
