The Europa birds were trained again today and this time from 95 miles. The syndicate birds recorded positions of 116th, 156th, 225th, 328th and 682nd out of the 809 birds that timed in. They have had a tough week so far with training tosses from 80 miles, 60 miles and now today from 95 miles. They are planning on going from 60 miles tomorrow and then 120 miles on Friday! So certainly a tough week for these youngsters and to their credit they are standing up to the test so far! 4 of the 5 syndicate birds timed within 1 minute 12 seconds of the winner and the last one was about 9 minutes behind.
