    The flights are all in the 3rd series. There have been only 2 call backs so far. If you don't have the call backs after the 2nd series, hit refresh.

    Also we all need to be patient.
    To give one perspective, figure that it takes an average of 7-8 minutes per dog plus down time for no birds, rebirding, and shift changes. If there are 100 dogs running x 8 minutes = 800 minutes. Divided by 60 minutes an hour = 13.33 hours Plus the aforementioned down time.

    To compound the issue of trying to keep up with things from afar, there is very little cell service on the property except for inside the lodge.

    They are getting information out as quickly as they can.

    Faster than last year for sure! They should be finishing 3rd series today... if they are not already.

    Cell cervice is sporatic... I was able to get a few facebook posts out, but couldnt recieve a phone call. My phone only lasted a few hours on Saturday as it was drained looking for service at Birches.

    According to the rotation #43 starts the fourth series. In the case of flight A, first dog will be #44.

    Keeping fingers crossed for Lady!
