Good morning from a wet and cold Carnival Lofts, the winter team have had about 10 training flights of which 5 was from about 50km’s. I was planning to do the first published training flight on Friday 19 June but due to the weather we could not take the pigeons out yesterday or today. Should the weather clear tomorrow we will do a 40km training tomorrow then another 2 x 50km this weekend and the first published training flight will be from Heilbron (90km’s) on Tuesday 23 June 2020. I will publish the latest loft listing tomorrow on the Benzing olr site for you.
