Great ending of the season: Best NATIONAL result on Nat. Sectorraces 14 sept!

On september 14th we had the last race of this season. We had the last (out of two) 'national' sectorraces for youngbirds. This means that we had three liberation points for our country and races between 400-500 kms.

For the national sectorrace we entered our best 10 birds. It became a fair race with headwinds.The first bird gained a velocity of 1240 meters per minute. Against 2,659 in our province (Afd 8/GOU) we won: 11-19-25-68-86-88-97-213-489. We won 9 prize cards out of 10 pigeons of which 3 x 1/100 and 8 x 1/10! This was the best national result on average points on these sectorraces by far. We had 736 points average!

They will have no experience at all when the season starts in April 2020. We will keep you informed! You can also subsribe to our Youtube channel: www.youtube.com/c/ebbenpigeons
