After the first race was held yesterday, August 30, 2022, with a 168km release in Alandroal, a race that became very hard for the pigeons, we are now going to let them rest and recover well for the second race, which we plan to do in next Tuesday, September 6th, with a scheduled release in Monforte 205 km.
FIRST OFFICIAL RACE/ ACE PIGEON, ALANDROAL-168KM WINNER- MIJNIS GIJSEN- HOLLAND
Yesterday, August 30, 2022, the first official race 2022 took place, with release in Alandroal- 168km. According to meteorological forecasts, the weather in the morning would be good for the release, which happened, with temperatures of around 18º degrees, and west / northwest wind which would make the pigeons enter Spain and then fly against the wind to go to towards the loft, which would normally happen. The first pigeons arrived well and arrived in the early hours in small groups, which is good, but with the increase in temperature the late pigeons must have landed and only got up in the afternoon and many are still arriving at the loft. The big winner was the pigeon NL 4851-De Pyreneeen 3, from Mijnis Gijsen, from Holland, who won the car. Congratulations to the winner and to those who won one of the 100 prizes up for grabs in this race.

INFORMATION- 9th training 2022 Vidigueira. Today was not a good day for the Golden Race, first at the release place the pigeons took a long time to orientation themselves and leave the release place, which will make it difficult to arrive at the loft, as temperatures will rise quickly. We can think that it was too early to release, but in previous trainings the time was the same and the pigeons quickly left the place of release. We tried to understand why and we didn't see any reason for this to happen, because although high temperatures were predicted during the day but in the morning it was cool, and we arrived at the release place at 5.50 am, we gave water to the pigeons at 6.30 am and the release took place. up at 7.10 am with good visibility and with the sun already high. It seems all right, but something wasn't right. After arriving at the loft, and despite we having tested the system before, a connection cable between the clock and the computer was disconnected or making a bad connection, which did not allow recording the pigeons that arrived in the first 5/6 minutes. So let's hope that all this described has served as a lesson for the future. Next week, Friday, the first official race 2022 will take place, with monetary prizes up for grabs, and all pigeons will be basketed 1 to 1 and the rings checked. So, next week, there will be many more pigeons on the basketing list than the arrivals from this training in Vidigueira. Our apologies and thanks for understanding. org AGR
