Saturday 7 it may have been the 3e Vitesse vlucht van dit seizoen en wel vanuit Burdinne over een afstand van 236 km. Een prachtige losplaats met volop ruimte midden in de Ardennen.

We hadden er nu 48 and putted well 21 doffers in 27 hens. Wederom waren de vooruitzichten op vrijdag niet echt goed voor de zaterdag maar gelukkig viel het allemaal best wel mee. ‘s morgens vroeg motregende het nog wel even maar om 09.15 After an hour it had already cleared up and the pigeons could start the flight home.

The whole week the wind was in the north and then you expect it to be Saturday too, but then the wind has turned to the west over the entire flight line. Fortunately there was not too much wind but the speed would therefore be higher than the last one 2 weeks. The expectation was that the first pigeons would reach a speed of around 90 km per hour. Because they have the wind with them, the prices will also be divided quickly.

About 11.53 hours came the first 3 pigeons flew in. They turned around for another round and then went down. From 2 year old cock 20-1176005 went over the antenna first and was clocked at 11.53,46. This cock is a half brother of the 19-1338264 (same mother) and already has 3 to grab top prizes. So he stood as 2e designated pigeon on the basketing list. As 2e was it again the birthday hen 21-1598225, that one last week 2e of the North department flew against almost 15.000 pigeons. So she is already 2 times been very early in the results. As 3e was it the 4-year-old hen that every year at least 10 good prices. Daarna kwamen er elke minuut wel een aantal duiven binnen zodat we 10 minutes after the 1e duif er was reeds 36 duiven geklokt hadden. Al met al een zeer goede vlucht van de duiven. ‘s middags om 14.00 uur waren alle 48 basketed pigeons back home.

We had this time 5e, 6e, 7e, 9e in 10e van de vereniging met verder 11 pigeons in the first 22. Een prachtig resultaat. Verder was het prijs percentage wederom zeer hoog, in de afdeling hadden we 41 of the 48 pigeons in the price, an attractive rate 85%. (See results)

G. Heerink had dit keer de 1e in the association. Gerard proficiat knap gedaan met verder een hele mooie uitslag.

In de standen staan we er ook goed voor. In de vereniging, Rayon en Afdeling staan we op plek 1 bij de onaangewezen standen. It's only a start but it looks nice.

Next week the first middle distance race of this year from Dizy le Gross.

Good luck with the preparations and see you next week.
