Finally got everything working again. Took them 25 miles yesterday. There are still some chip issues. I noticed the 1st bird through didn't show on the online report so I checked the # (WACO 317). I ran it back across the scanner, but it still didn't record. So I have some work to do replacing chips. Rick, you have at least one more bird than those on the list.
Thanks for your patience

Premier 5 race OLR series that awards the most consistent performers. This will be a working series
Operating as usual
Toss on Tuesday was not the greatest but it wasn't a disaster. The majority of the birds overflew the loft but the hot spot quit on us after reporting 39 birds. There were 60+ birds in the clock yesterday mid- morning when I talked to Larry . He tested positive for covid on Wednesday so I have been avoiding going out there to try to correct the problem. He was fully vaccinated, but he was sick for 4 or 5 days late last week. Couldn't taste or smell anything so he decided to get tested. It was the Delta variant. Sorry for the equipment failure and thanks for your support.
We had rain or strong winds every day last week, but it looks like the weather is going to cooperate this week. We will most likely get them out to 40/50 miles. Birds have all completed their head and body molt and look great! Hawks are still a problem, and one took one of my personal birds as it was trying to make the landing board with me standing 8 feet from the board Sunday morning.
Have a great week!
Had some trouble with the clock so we missed posting a couple of training tosses @ 5 miles. But I got it fixed and the last couple of trainers posted. Too much rain here to train again until Monday. We will be stretching them out now and expect to have the qualifying race in about 3 weeks.
All the birds were kept in the loft this week… we had a couple spectators in the form of hawks watching closely. No birds were lost and we want to keep it that way so we will resume training as soon as everything dies down.￼￼￼￼￼￼
I set up a release yesterday before I went to work. The weather turned bad (thunderstorms and heavy rain)so Larry never let them out. Will try again today. I did a head count last weekend and I got 6 more than the 110 that show to have clocked. Will catch them all again this weekend and see which ones have a bad chip. Hope you all have a good weekend!
Birds are looking well and flying for a couple of hours every time they are out. Starting to get in the upper 90's every day, so they go up for a while, come down and rest, up again far a bit etc. Have had some hawk predation (Coopers Hawks fledging) and unfortunately lost a couple this past week. These young hawks are starving so they will come through the trap to get a meal if they can. Constant surveillance is the only reliable deterrent. Road training will start in 3 of 4 weeks so things will get interesting then.

Some of the birds looking happy and healthy.
Good luck to everyone￼
Birds are looking good and getting out most days in spite of the rain. We have had rain (a little or a lot) every day for the last two weeks. Came hope last weekend to find 6 Cananian geese swimming around in my back yard. Ordered chips and more vaccine last week and should receive them early this coming week. Will get all the birds chipped and give them a PMV booster at the same time. Will then do a live clocking (loft training) so you can see your birds clock. Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day enjoying your family and honoring our vets!
PS - If anyone has any extra bands, I would like to band a round for a couple of new fliers and could use any amount you might have. Let me know and I will send $.

Good luck to ￼Bobby Chau in LA.
Still have several more commitments for this year's entries. Weather has been really wet for the last two weeks with rain nearly every day, but the bird's health continues to be good. Remember, if you decide to send a few more, the price break on perch fees applies to the total number of birds that you have entered. So, if for example, you have 3 here already and paid $300, you can send an additional 3 for only $150, or if you want to send an additional 5 birds for a total of 8, you will only owe an additional $100 in perch fees.

Happy Easter to all! I have had some conversations with several folks who would like to enter our race but they feel their situation is just too tenuous during this time of uncertainty to do it right now. In view of this, we are inviting all who are interested to go ahead and send your birds and take up to July 15th to send your perch fee. For all of you who have already sent your birds and fees, please feel free to send a few more and wait if you need to send your additional perch fees. We all need to stick together during these time and trust in each other!!! As always, you can use Pay Pal or send a check. Thanks T&J Loft.
God Bless you all, stay healthy and thank you for your support!!!!
