We’ve wrapped up 2012 here at Kastle Loft. We were happy to add a total of six first place wins in club racing during the young bird season.
Our biggest win of the young bird season, however, came in the Gulf Coast Classic. Our handler, Jim Combs, did a great job with our birds. AU 2012 Kastle 11 finished the Classic race in 204th place. Out of 2052 birds and 101 lofts, that finish was good enough to get us in the top 10% and in the money in some of the toughest competition in the country. We plan to send more birds to Jim in 2013.
Kastle 11 is a daughter of Waddy (a direct son of Kannibaal’s Gold) and Widow’s 20 (a double grand-daughter of Black Widow and Aviator).
We also enjoyed finishing up Tory’s 7th grade science fair project where she compared flight speeds of our birds on various carb & fat diets. We wish her the best in upcoming competition.
Here’s looking back to a fun, although sometimes frustrating 2012, and to hopeful success in 2013.
