One these days must be flexible when deciding to race etc Boosey Smile Smile so I suggest a good move by those in charge there. 371 miles, nice Wink Wink now all you need is a dead set head wind there bounce bounce & it would maybe, be a perfect type day Smile Smile. cheers

The sad fact is oldstrain that it is almost impossible now to compete with a small team.

There are numerous difficulties now facing our feathered friends that make it almost impossible to go through a season and be able to enter every race with a small team.

If the raptors do not get them then the weather and other matters may and whilst a large team can survive with enough to compete the loss of just a couple could ruin the small fanciers season and in particular if they were the ones for a special race etc;


If you get through the season and win a few cards you will have done better than some with far more birds.


Good LUck.

Regards..

I am downsizing drastically for next year. Up to me to pick the racers and stock. Consistent birds and breeders of consistent birds stay. Thankless task culling but has to be done in my circumstances.
Lofts will be pulled down, as they are old. Enough loft space one is always tempted to keep a few more. There are some races I want to do good in. The longer ones. I cannot really compete with the overfly I have in sprint racers. So. With a small team have to pick the races to send to early in the season. Tune-ups. Had to miss the 200 and 250 milers today. Family emergency. I am glad I did!! They were let go in clear weather and at the 180 mark hit rain and thunderstorms. Do not know how any flier made out. Not interested. 320 and a 400 miler next weekend. Will ship to both. Last OB race for me. Then selection starts.
