yes david it is allot of responsibility ,and I have seen it many times where they just let the birds go , because the race controller says so , not me if I don't think its right , then I talk to the race controller and explain the problem ,at the end of the day the convoyer has the last say ,and I always take a video of the area and liberation to cover my back side cheers you need them birds back on the wagon next week or your out of a job

It's not just that I think technology has a lot to do with it..one time the birds just went on a Friday , now they get forecasts then take it from there..We are too soft nowadays ,frightened of a bit cloud cover ect

what I don't like is sunday racing because the weather has not been good on Saturday , at least there is some notice of where some feds are and what time they intend to lib , but sunday everybody wants up early to beat everybody else , there is no coordination , only cock ups
