2018 Tire Town Classic
One Loft Race







March 23, 2018 - 11:15AM

This past week we received 6 more reservations from 3 lofts, bringing us up to 51 reservations from 20 lofts!

Some of our breeders inform me that their birds are banded and that they will be shipped in a couple of weeks. We look forward to seeing these birds arrive and can't wait to settle them and watch them fly!

Below is a pic of the loft our 2018 Tire Town Classic will be flown out of!

More next week!

The past 2 weeks have been very quiet with no new reservations.  This is surprising because GAR members report that several of their friends from around the country plan to send birds to our little race.  If you plan to enter the Tire Town Classic, please call or email me (330-807-4643 -- BTauscher@aol.com) and place your reservations as soon as possible to insure your place in the race.

Birds for the Tire Town Classic will be received from March 15--May 15 so we expect the first birds to arrive soon.  When you are getting ready to sent your entries, please remember to contact Jim Bedell (330-606-2693 -- mlb753@yahoo.com) so that he is expecting their arrival.  As your birds arrive, they will be listed here in our website.

Good luck with your breeding season and the upcoming racing season!

Eleven more reservations this week bring us up to 45 birds for our Tire Town Classic. We are almost half filled!

At today's Greater Akron Racers meeting everyone expressed very strong committment to make this race the best we can make it. It is exciting to see the whole club's involvement in this project and I look forward to this being a great race.

Soon we will be preparing the loft for when the birds arrive. I hope to post a picture of the loft next week.

As of today we have received reservations for 36 birds. This is particularly exciting because we have not done a lot of publicizing yet, and even more because we have not advertized in any magazines or other websites!

We hope you will find the Tire Town Classic to be inexpensive way for you to fly in a one loft race and test your birds against a bunch of very good birds.
