Wayne Lowe and Nate Gentry brought their 2017 race entries today. Nate loves his black pigeons. In the 2016 race series his black pigeon was equal 1st on the 225 mile race. He’s hoping AU 17 VITA 3761 will be the big winner this year. We wish him luck.

Final Race Pics

2016 RVR Final Race Spectators2016 Final RaceThese 3 banners show companies whose products we use and highly recomend. There are other good companies but these are 3 of the very best.

These are some of our spectators today. We have just returned from eating at our local Mexican restaurant and are watching the sky for birds. While waiting we had drawings for bags of Des Moines feed and 1 pack of nest felts. We gave away 1 bag of feed to Ron Gustafson for picking the time the 1st birds would arrive. He went on to win High Point bird also.

Birds! 7 on the 1st drop. This was a difficult day with strong left cross winds. Chuck Kuehl had the 1st bird through the trap followed by Jim Fox, Julio Medina, M V, Mayfield/David/Cassidy, B O K Mountain Top, and C & R Loft of OK. Congratulations to all these birds. Everyone agreed they performed spectacularly. Today was so much fun. I wish it could have lasted longer.
