Well the 2009 Young bird season is in the books, a few months ago actually

Well the 2009 Young bird season is in the books, a few months ago actually. Our two Rookies gave us a little schooling in YB racing this season lapping the competition and beating us into submission. All I can say is enjoy it while you can, because as Admiral Yamamoto said in one of my favorite movies Tora Tora Tora  I fear all we have done is awaken a sleeping giant. I have a feeling some of the older members will have something for you so get em ready. Anyway on to the Accolades.

It was a short season because of the over abundance of rain the past year, Thank the Lord, it was also a very tough series flying across the Smoky Mountains. We flew 10 races and the two rookies won 9 of them. Billy Johnson won 6 of the 10 races doubling up on weeks 1 and 3. Danny Gossnell took 3 of the reaming 4 doubling up on week 4. Frank McDonough won the remaining race. Billy also won both Combine race on week 3, Danny won 1 combine race week 4 and Frank won a combine race week 2.

 

Danny took most of the Yearly awards.

 Average speed A B Overall in the Club and the Combine. 

Champion Loft  A B and Overall in the Club and B races in the Combine.

Master Loft B races in the Club.

His Red Check Cock bird AU 09 SCO 9612 took Champion Bird Honors scoring in 4 of the 5 races entered in the Club as well as Champion Bird of the Combine. Scoring in 3 of the 5 races entered in the Combine.

 

Billy won

Master Loft Overall for the club.

 

Frank won

Master Loft A races for the Club and in the Combine.

 

The Club also hosted the Dixie Southern Convention during and were busy handling young birds for the convention race, but thats a whole nother story.

 

Keep up the good work Rookies get them ready for OBs and keep an eye over your shoulders.
