The last weeks we had some great results.
On August 3rd we had two races, the last one day long distance race from Vierzon and the first middle distance race for the youngsters.
The one day long distance race was our only national race for this distance. The birds were liberated in Vierzon (for us 579 kms) at 7.45 am. We did not had a very early bird, but our pigeons were also not too late. When they started to come, they were home very quickly.
Provincial against 3,345 pigeons we won: 43-45-49-74-76-102-446 and 701. Then our birds were home. We only entered 8 pigeons and we won 8 prizes 1/4 of which 6 x 1/20.
This result was the best result in our province and the 2nd best national result on average points!!!
The youngbirds went to Niergnies on August 3rd. In our combine there were 1,549 pigeons and we won: 4-7-21-28-45-79-150-155 and so on. We entered 17 pigeons and won 12 prizes of which 8 x 1/10. In NIC Zetten we won 1-2-6-7-12-23 and so on vs 247 pigeons. The first two pigeons were two nestsisters bred from ‘Merlijn’ (4 x top 10 provincial and grandson ‘Roosje’) mated to a daughter of ‘Indy’. For the pedigree of the first pigeon click here.
This result was the 2nd best result in our province!
