5th Best provincial result from National Châteauroux

Last weekend we had the last race for our oldbirds. It was the big national race from Châteauroux. We entered 10 birds, 3 cocks and 7 hens. 
Despite the fact we not had a real early bird we still had a good result. From the 10 entered birds, 7 won prize 1:4 and 5 won prize 1:10. Against 1,018 pigeons in our combine we won: 19- 40- 50- 55- 81- 135 and 171. This was the 5th best provincial result on average points. 

In the result sheet we had 4 pigeons (also the first three at our loft) from the same couple; NL12-1355632 ‘Hannibal’ and ‘Katja’.  In the club we won 1- 2- 3- 5- 6- 10 and 12.
