As of this week we will be preparing the birds for tossing. They are working around the loft for about 1 hour per day and most have come through the body moult and are looking good. Tossing will commence in May and we will be providing a listing of the birds. The toss points are still Boonaroo and Burrum Heads.
The first race with be from Agnes Waters on 18th July 2010 and then to Yeppoon on 8th August 2010 and the final race 29th August from St Lawrence.
It is very important to note that all spare birds have to be activated for the races before the 18th July 2010 otherwise they will not be eligible for any prizes.
We wish you all well and hope the upcoming racing season for you is successful.
We have received the Transporter for the birds from Paul Hawkins of NDHA and we will provide some pictures from the first few tosses, many thanks Paul and NDHA.
Also many thanks to Chris Thomas, Des Moore, Mark Johnston and Bruce Kehlet for their invaluable assistance.
Regards Jim & Andrea.
