It’s been a while since we’ve posted anything. Now that the 2021 season has started, we would like to make a summary.
We were lucky and we were able to clock two early pigeons on Argenton.
First a yearling BE 20-6183432, this yearling hen is a granddaughter daughter of “Junior 500” (BE 07-6031645) and a daughter of “Daughter TORRE 491” (BE 14-6070491). She is a half sister of “Het 001” (BE 19-6035001).
Shortly afterwards NL 19-1138924 followed and was clocked at 16:00:47 good for a 76th national place. We obtained this cock as a youngster from Peter Schmitz. This cock is a cross between the Gaston Van De Wouwer line and the Van Eynde – Goovaerts line.
Long Distance has also been raced here for two years now. The pigeons were released at 7:15 am, we had basketted two pigeons. The pigeons had to cover a distance of 944,103 km to get home. Our first nominated BE 18-6061227 was clocked around 19:52:15, good for a 79th National, this pigeon also became 1st in the club. Splendid performance!
Our second and last pigeon was clocked on June 26 around 12:49:35, a day later but still good for a provincial price.
