                                                2010

 This year was another super season racing our own birds. Since starting the Empire Classic One Loft 5 years ago I have been truly amazed at how well our own birds race, usually scoring at the top of the Combine Awards, since I have very limited amount of time to spend with our own birds. The only explanation, I believe, is that I have a family of birds that are of exceptionally high quality. We had several highlights this year, we won 1ST in all the Combine Averages and Champion Loft Awards in both Old Birds and Young Birds. The Old Bird season was very difficult, in particular at the longer races. Our results were outstanding at the three longest races, at the first 500 mile there were no day birds and only 13 birds in race time in the Combine, we were 1ST and 4TH. At the second 500 mile there were only 10 day birds in the Combine, we clocked a yearling in 5TH position in the Combine. Finally in the 600 mile race we clocked the ONLY DAY BIRD in the COMBINE and clocked our 5 birds in the top 16 positions in the Combine. Getting the only day bird in the Combine was a huge thrill for us since about 75% of the Combine fly shorter than us and the lofts that fly longer had enough daylight to get day birds, a super performance by our widow hood cock. We won the Long Average Speed in the Combine by over 7 1/2 hours. We also had some success on the One Loft race scene, our bird in the Western Canada Challenge was 1ST (equal) on the final race. Congratulations to Dennis Lee (Iron Shirt Loft) who was 1ST EMPIRE MARATHON 420, both parents of his winning bird were purchased from us last winter. Also congratulations to Glen Lyon (Paradise Loft) on scoring 2ND EMPIRE MARATHON 420 and with the same bird winning 1ST EMPIRE TRIPLE CROWN ACE PIGEON, the father of this bird is a THEO RUTTEN import purchased from us last winter.
