Canadian International One Loft Race 300 Miler Update

Canadian International OLR - We sent 1 team of 6 birds, had 4 shipped to the 300 smash on Labor day. We had 3 birds clock on day two scoring 30th, 44th, 45th of 418 shipped of an initial 1,200 bird entry. The 100th pigeon clocked 5 days after release. We weren't lucky enough to hit the top 10, but looks like we'll break even. We're currently sitting at 28th, 31st, and 34th average speed, 10th high-point bird, and 11th hot striker team. There's still a 325, 350, and 375 miler to go! Once the dust settles on this one, the top bird will be one hell of a pigeon.
