Last weekend we had our first NPO-race. It was a very hard race from Ablis (456 km). De pigeons were released at 9.10 a.m. and the circumstances were tough. Our first bird arrived at 16.14.50 p.m. and it's speed was 1.049 meters per minute. He wins the first in the Long Distance Club Wijchen (appr. 800 pigeons) and 3rd NPO in Amalgation 8/South.
Our first bird was 'Conan' (NL07-1513702). Two weeks ago he already won 1st Pommeroeul against 476 pigeons and as a youngster he won 4th Menen against 9.291 pigeons.
'Conan' was followed by his half brother 'Canon' (NL07-5708949), as a youngster 2nd acepigeon in our club and already winner of 3rd Peronne 179 pigeons, 5th Peronne 1.345 pigeons, 5th Ablis 851 pigeons, 8th Strombeek 560 pigeons and 48th Menen 9.291 pigeons. Our third pigeon was 'Cher Ami' (NL07-5708940), a son of 'Rodi' x 'Bontje'. All three they win prize in the first 50 NPO of Amalgation 8/South. We didn't build a party, our best pigeon 'Masja' (NL04-1720208), has not returned yet.
