Saturday 22 August Quievrain was scheduled. We had all 43 boy basked.
Fortunately, the weather was good this time and the pigeons were able to change early 7.45 be unloaded. The speed would be high, more than 100 km per hour, a strong SW wind was blowing.
We would be around for an early pigeon 10.30 hours, but unfortunately that did not work. The first 2 pigeons had probably already flown a bit too far, they were already coming from the back. About 10.34,48 was our 1e pigeon clocked, this was again the 20-1176002, this pigeon had on the 1e flight from Boxmeer already one 1e flown in the district against 3.222 pigeons. From 2e and the following pigeons came off very well. Within 10 minutes na de 1e pigeon were already there 24 of the 43 basketed pigeons. Then it dripped nicely.
We had this time 5e, 6e, 7e, 8e, 9e in 10 of our association (See results). Vincent Bonnes had this time 1 t/m 4 of our association. Vincent congratulations, well done.
In the district we had 29 pigeons in the price, a very nice percentage of almost 68%, and that with young pigeons. We just didn't have a head pigeon but otherwise a very good result.
This weekend the pigeons will go to Dizy le Gross, a beautiful release point in the north of France.
Good luck all with the preparations and see you next week.
