Short week report!

Here a short note week report. Weather was some better as last weeks.  This  mean that we firs after some weeks, not have to wait to Sunday in this rain weekend Year.  After a rainy morning on the race line, afternoon the pigeons go out on 13.30 with , a western south western wind on Pt St Max 320 km.
There were with 1 race to go after this,  only 1794 young pigeons in the combine, and the prices (the list of the first 25% arrived pigeons) take 35 minutes, and 85% arrived yesterday every were. So  the arrivals learn,  it was again not a good and quick race, but the same as last weeks, it was clear they have with the strong western wind also rain on the way back.
Last Year I have all wks the 1e price, but now it is most weeks 2e price I start with, There is every week somebody who have a pigeons before me, but, that is super to keep the fanciers in the sport.  I have them not as good as other weeks with 2-8-9-15-17 etc etc on 276 pigeons is in combine on 1794 place 8-39-52-80-86  etc etc
The 2e price winner was from Wondered Dirk son with Bliksem Abeele hen, the same pigeons who do the big part winning of the points from My day race 1e Championship.

Leo van Rijn be champion again!!!

The weather was again so bad, that the races Saturday all over Holland, were cancelled. So we go out the basket’s today, Sunday 6 August. We had today, the last race 2017 with the old pigeons, a race from La souterraine , for me 671 km, with a soft North western head wind, who turned in Belgium to west, and here on the last 100 km turn on to Wes south west.
This western wind made again that we here on the west coast, in the total provincial South Holland, have no any change You understand. But looking here, to provincial south Holland, section west, we have an acceptable some more honest, and good race. I have send only 9 pigeons, and won the 1e and 2e in the club and the 2e -6-30-35-63 in the combine against 424 pigeons .
This 2e price, made that I am again 1e Champion General (all over General; Vitesse- Mid fond- Day race fond ) 2017, and also 1e Champion Day races 2017, etc etc, of course in club but also in the area and the combine.
This 1e prices most weeks, 1e price winners 2017 on the middle distance and special the day races, have been as I wright You al weeks, most of them, a big % the old Benjamin line. As You know, sins 2014 with great success in cross, with the 3 Wonder Dirk breeders of me, and the 4 breeders of the super winner multiplayer Bliksem 781 .
It started with winning by me of the National ACE Young pigeon all Holland 2014, Marja, and this combination with Benjamin gives my loft a winners boost from 2014 all Years. Now a Yearling won last day race from Chateauroux on 603 KM, and NL16-1835694 (from this blood line combination) won the 1e now on La Souterraine on 671km, super I guess for such a Young hen on such a tough and long day race. SUPERB HEN this 694, Who I will call now La Souterraine 694
With the Youngsters this morning it was a more disturbed race, the weather early this morning, was not simple it seems for them, because there were too much minutes between the arrivals.
I have them good in the club and as one of the best in the combine, but missed the first arrivals group, and start with 4-8-9-13-14-15-16-17-18-20-21-22 25- etc on 286p
A lot of lofts were slaughtered by the losses all weeks, so much losses that fanciers lost around 60%.
Good friends/Champs, who raced also well for30-40 Years have not enough left for fill the boxes 2018…., I hope I go on like this, because I have left still 65 of My 84 Young 2017 pigeons, who I started with in May in My loft. So if I be able, to keep this the last 2-3 weeks, I have enough choice for the 24 Yearlings hen and cocks I hope to select.
Two times 2nd in combine!

Here it is still rubbish with the weather. Yesterday we raced from Morlincourt/Noyon and they find a moment at 10.45 to put the pigeons out, total provincial South Holland Young and old in 1 time around 31.700 pigeons. The sky opened some spots some moments, and we get hope on a good race, but after a while clouds / sky closed totally, and some spats of drizzle rain started. It should be the start of a difficult returns, with late in the evening 95% at home on the lofts.
I have not bad luck, that I have with both Young and Old pigeons the 2e in the combine.
With the old pigeons place 2-6-7-25-33-50-61-62-73 in the combine = provincial west section place 22-28-29 -102-136-etc on 1593p on this last race, what with a west south western wind was difficult to do better for me at the West coast /Westland
With the Youngsters also place 2 in the combine and My second on place 24 (lost 3 minutes) on 3488 Young pigeons, go on with 24-40-44-57- etc made much worse as normally, only 19 of the 64 in the price list, missing only 4 in the evening what was very good .
So still again, not a pigeons weather weekend as we hope and like, but we have to deal with it. I hope I have keep My No 1 Champion position still in the Combine and section south Holland west after this 2 rain weekends with a high week of fortune level.
