Bit of a mystery to me also Hal Wink Wink why they appear to have so many short ones type of thing. Maybe thou Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes we shouldn't be so judge mental etc as we do see things from afar & our ways on average are some what different I suggest Wink Wink.

just the early races soon stretch out ,we have a 13 race old bird programme have to keep all happy short,medium and long ...less birdage now on the longer races so theirs fewer of them just not viable with cost I suppose ,like the medium distance races best 200-400

Yes I suppose it depends on location and number of fliers. Here the longer races cost extra to ship because of lack of numbers. Old birds out today open loft. On the ground then fielding. Then flying over an hour. Then another hours as a Cooper hawk started to take an interest. Then at least 15 buzzards sitting on the shed roof. Looking at the cat carcasses in the field. Open loft again tomorrow. Then first toss Monday. 20 miles. Regardless of weather. 1st race May 5. 115 miles.
