Found Video From Hinsdale

Recommended Posts

Guest amn70

Hi,

I can't believe you found these videos. I have always hoped I could find some video footage of races my boy Laddie participated in during the summer of 2007 between June and August at Hinsdale. His race name was UMR Adolph. If indeed he appears in any of the video footage from 2007 I'd love a copies of those particular videos. Please let me know. Below is a list of Laddie's races that Greyhound data had. I believe their may have been about 4 during that time more that aren't recorded. Maybe there are even more. I'd especially love video of his first place wins. I am going to keep my fingers and Laddie will keep his paws crossed. :-)

Thanks in advance,

Adam

 

P.S. This is SO awesome

 

 

 

we went back this morning and this time climbed up to the tower

we hit the mother load - 33 more tapes - most of these date 07 and 08

also found 59 4GB DDS tapes, 7 30GB ADR tapes and 6 IDE hard drives

some of the DDS tapes are dated all the way back to 1996

1 DDS tape is labeled Seabrook

i dont have the tape drives for these, but i will look into it

 

there was about 15 more tapes in the tower - but they were smashed by the vandals

 

Snowjay - sorry the big sign was gone - only the busted up frame was there

 

walking through the place is a bit like playing Fallout 3

 

i took more pics which i will post to my AG thread

Awesome. I can't believe Hinsdale lied to me back in 2008 when I called them and asked if they had archived race footage from 2007. They told me all footage was disposed of at the end of the season.

 

It's cool that you actually remembered my plea on Craigslist for

Laddie's race footage :-)

Hinsdale was on the verge of bankruptcy in 08 and probably didn't want to deal with it

or mayhaps you just didn't talk to the right person

 

i have VHS tapes from 04-08 - so they definitely didn't destroy them

and i really hope the DDS and ADR tapes have racing on them

Count me in! Heard about this from amn70 through our local adoption group. We have a hound who raced at Hinsdale from April 2008-August 2008, named Pals Bullet. We would be ecstatic to see what you can find, thank you SO much!!

i transferred my 1st tape of races

problem is the file sizes are huge - like 50mb per race

even zipped they are to big to email

i don't want to shrink them as the quality will suffer

 

i uploaded a card of 15 races to Youtube - matinee card 2-14-2004

but it took 83 minutes to upload and the quality is not as good as the file on my PC

i use roadrunner which has good download speed but horrible upload speed

 

here is the card:

 

i would really like to keep this free, but burning and mailing DVDs will incur costs

 

does anyone have any suggestions??

is making a web page so they can be downloaded feesable? or will that be cost prohibitive?

i know zero about creating a web page

if that is a non-starter than it will have to be DVD's

 

im starting with the oldest tapes first and will work my way up

the tape all have to be played in full to transfer so it will be a slow process - but it seems to work good

Like others, I'd like to pay toward the cost -- you're investing both time and money in this. I had tears in my eyes when I watched that race of Simba's that you uploaded. Like many others, I want to see more of my hound's races and to know the files are safe somewhere, but I don't have the skills to set up that sort of website with cart and checkout.

 

For sharing, one short term option is using a service like YouSendIt; the pro version is just 15 bucks for a month and AFAIK does not have a data limit. Donations and payments to you would need to be on the honor system through PayPal or similar. Or, if physical DVDs are easier, we can still send $ to you through PayPal.

 

Sincere thanks to you for this. It really does feel like a gift I never thought would come is here.

a webpage wouldn't need cart or checkout - maybe just a donate button to offset the cost of the page

but the server would probably need a terrabyte worth of storage - and that might kill the idea

luckily i have a 1TB hard drive in my PC that is only 10% full so i should able to hold them all

from what ive read i cant host them myself because roadrunner blocks servers from residential service

 

the you send it might work... i could make everyone files - rent it for 1 month and send them all

however i may run into the same super slow upload problem i have with youtube :angryfire

roadrunner sucks...i want verizon fios - but it aint available here

 

 

here is a vid of my bridge Angel running his best:

I know several of the dogs in the races you've posted - what a treat to see them run! Thank you so much, and I hope that someone will step up and help implement your website idea, it's the simplest one for everyone!

Thank you so much for finding a race with my Eli. Its the first time I've ever seen ANY of my guys race.

I too would have no problem paying you :)

 

If you come across any races with my Millie (PS Emily) in them I'd love to see them. She raced at Hinsdale between August 9, 2003 and June 6, 2004 (57 races with 10 - 1st place finishes) according to Greyhound Data.

 

 

I saw PS Emily in one of the races from post #84. I think maybe race 7 :)

Look at my boy RUNNNNNN!!! :beatheart

 

That race was a 660 yard. I've never understood why his kennel ran him in the shorter sprint distance at all.

 

Blitzkrieg, you've made my day again. I'm frankly going to make everyone I know watch this video. And your sweet hound ran with great heart -- look at him! Look at his lead! I know it must be bittersweet, but I'm so glad you found his races among the tapes.

 

Another thought about sharing (so happy you have these tapes that I was convinced were gone for good): if uploading is painfully slow, burning/mailing DVDs might be the way to go. I know that's also a big time commitment, but I'd happily pay you for DVDs, too. If I think of another way, may I pm you?

 

My boy could RUNNNNN!!! :beatheart
