To do the best I can for the hobby anywhere that is needed. And to keep the State of Ohio on the map.
Yes I fly in most flies except the W/C because of hawk season. But will give it a shot next year since I'm in a new location.

Cliff Ball-Oak Ridge North Carolina

54 years young


Rollers obtained from Tom Williams (Homer Coderre and Plona's line of Pensom's) and Jay Yandle (James Turner Indigo and Andalusians)

I have always outcrossed and had mediochre rollers with an occaisional spinner. My goal is to inbreed to develope a tight family of more consistent spinners that kit well, like I hear and read so much about, but have never been able to accomplish.

I have never competed, never having had the genetic strength for spinning in my breeders, until now.

3- I load explosives for airbags. Just here to save your ass if someone else gets stupid.
4- Idon't have a strain yet. Have three pair from the Julsons in Utah and just got some birds from Paul and Bill in Cali.
5- Goal in the hobby? To win the world cup. To win it and be good enough to have enough stock birds to donate the winning kit for the NBRC auction. I want to say yes I won with this kit of birds and I can do it again with a new kit. So here is the world cup kit for anyone who wants to buy it. I want to know that when I have achived my goal I can achieve it again. It's not just a one time goal, it's a lifetime goal.
6- No. I am just getting started and I haven't had a kit of birds to enter yet. Hopefully by spring I will. Just got eight new birds six younguns and one breeder pair. So next year I will be competeing.

Richard are you asking who BR Rollers is? If so this is your friend Ronnie over here in North Carolina. The "B" stands for my 9 year old son Ben. And the "R" , well is self explanitory!
It has been to long my friend! We are certainly over due to have another one of our wonderful Roller conversations. I have been very curious as to how that nest of delutes turned out for you? The young red self did turn out to be a cock like you said. He just isn't a very agressive bird like the other young cocks.
I can't wait to get something off that wonderful Red Mottle hen! I really have been losing sleep over I may rigg up lights to set up a few special pair....Just a thought right now...may need your advise on this.

My health is about 90 percent now and I started back to work just yesterday. It sure is GREAT to be alive! And of course to have wonderful friends like you! Say hi to Rod for me if you speak to him.
Talk to you soon.
