Schedule 2008



This is a tentative schedule.  Weather permitting training will begin in late June.  At least 2 training tosses will be given from each of the following distances: 8 km, 10 km, 20 km, 40 km and 75 km.   During training due care will be taken to release birds on fair weather days to give them every opportunity to fly home in reasonable time.  During racing birds will not be released in fog, rain or excessively strong headwinds; however, there is no guarantee that they will not encounter these conditions on the way home.
