2003 Young Bird Results:

 

CLUB:     (11) X 1st Place     (13) X 2nd Place     (12) X 3rd Place

(16 Races)

                          (14) X 4th Place     (14) X 5th Place     (13) X 6th Place

Note:  All of our 1st Place Wins were with “Drops” of 2 through 25 Birds, so in many cases even the 20th Place Bird in the Club was an Equal 1st Place Winner.
(Individual Bird Performances are counted as Equal Position if Not beaten by another Flyer)
