Middle-Distance Pontoise a great success!

Today 17 June 2017 we had a race from Pointoise , distance 357 KM, with a NNW wind, and a quiet closed cloudy sky. Our pigeons  have go out as only province in Holland at 7 a clock, and it have be better that they have wait also 1 hour more,  like the rest of Holland, because the cloudy sky go a little open when our pigeons were at home already.
The race however was done in a 20-22 minutes, not bad but also not real good with the arrivals all around on the lofts, but al pigeons returned well.
Today I have again the 1e price of 167 pigeons in My village ,  and this was place 6 in the combine on 2771 pigeons and 15 place provincial west site on 7001 pigeons, and 16 of My 27 pigeons in the price on system 1 to 4. The winner is My 2 years cock from My Blue Power with the Abeele hen of Bliksem 781.
The circumstances are with the weather last weeks on a row not easy, so I have to be happy that I am lucky with weekly 1e price and top in the area.

Leo van Rijn wins 1 and 2 at Peronne

Here on the short race from Peronne , I won again the 1e and 2e price in club what was a little too late in the combine with 22 and 23 on 2725 pigeons. Too late because I get 1 cock from high in the sky taking a little too much time when the second arrived and no 1 go to nr 2 and made some fun together in the sky, and that cost me a small minute together and a lot of this 22 places before me in the combine,  because they arrived with high speed because of a southern tail wind, the lost time cost me a lot better places.

On race 2 from 554 km we expect a quick race but it was a little dead sky, there was a circle round the sun (a hallo),  and  a lot of swallows and seagulls circling around, what was the sign that it was not a quick race but a disturbed race. I won price 22 in the combine on 1559 pigeons what was  2 -6-10 -15 in club ad 5 of 8 in the price list.

Again today I better have nothing to complain with My small race team but be happy with the results.   

Here the weather yesterday on the race, was difficult again, as always in May, with the continue changing weather and temperature. We now have a tropical day, with more as 30 Celsius and a very soft south eastern wind, now any cloud, and burning sun.

Yesterday I won on a tough day race of 533 km with a hot south east wind 1 -2 -4 local(difficult and tough race, at evening 45% of the pigeons was not at home all around by other fanciers) I had 3 pigeons in concourse of My UNO day race pigeon line, and with this price 1-2-4 they were all 3 at home before most fancies even have a pigeon seen at the sky.

This was with this difficult and for me bad wind, provincial against 1102 fanciers and 18464 pigeons in concourse , price 23 and 28 and 286 provincial, and this even with Yong 2016 pigeons. The are Yearling childeren from the UNO hen NL09-1080223

We had also a short race, and they decide to change the plan and go to a very east place , very stupid, and that made as we told before the race extra disturbed with this disturbed south eastern wind. And that happened. Even now on Sunday morning, I read on My whats up, that 30% of the pigeons of this race and form the day race , from both still is not returned on most lofts

(I started on this Vitesse race from Chimay, unfortunately with price 4-6-7, and I have 21 of 23 pigeons at home)

The top pigeons were mostly all of the old lines, and the 1e price winner, It was again a hen of My old lines , King/Keizer, /Hattrick mix, (father Hattrick 790 x Frederica 947) who won the 1e. However, she arrived as no 4, but coming in strait, were another 3 pigeons decide to show around some more to show the boss they feel good and happy. The 3 who lost the 1e because they don’t come in direct, were daughter from Bliksem 395 x Benjamina 907 , and daughter Keizer 010 Mr Perfect x Willem de Bruin Schanulleke , and son Jannie 537 (the champion from Keizer/Hattrick line ) x UNO 827 .
Also the 2 trainings races last 2 wks, they were arrived like this, very well.
I do nothing as most light food (and not much), to try to let them come in quick. The distance made they need no fet corns, only sugar corns, and nothing more this 1e weeks.
