We need do do a little advertising down here, 95% of people I've talked to never have heard of "pigeon racing".

"206 miles" but quite normal here for many. Just watch the weather I suggest & pick your days etc. Also a few club tosses will help cut the distance down if you have such a thing there.

sure is daunting knack. Jenner came over to give me some money for pigeon feed. He made me feel better. Said I've got natural management skills scratch I've decided to breed two 20ish yb teams. I've got to get the race loft built asap.
I see most of those races, that it will be hard to train on a line. confused The western open out of Winnemucca.....forget it. I would have to drive to Boise Idaho just to train even close on a line! I'll be happy to race the young bird races, but the Mrs., may drive them to a few basketings for me.

Keep sweet with your other half Rom I would suggest Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes lol! lol! lol! worth gold in the long run Smile Smile make her a partner as such Wink Wink & tell her if she is good bounce bounce there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow type of thing on race day if she wins  Smile  Smile. Now, the tossing bit Smile Smile Dont fret if you cannot toss on line there I would suggest, toss where it's most conveniant for you for starters. I know flyers here "Good flyers" that never toss on line because of their position. The secret is Wink Wink to have your birds roaming the country side far & wide for the enjoyment factor  bounce  bounce as they will  soon learn whats out there so to speak Smile Smile.

In the club here, I am 40 miles longer than the next guy. In the Fed probably 60 or so longer. I do not worry about it. Right pigeon on the right day will do it.
