Yesterday was our second midfond flight and once again it was from Melun a distance of around 400 km to most club members.
We have to be happy with our team performance of 20 prizes from 40 entries (50%) but we again are around 2 minutes of the pace. I think our middle distance birds need setting up for more distance over the Eendag fond races (One Day Long Distance) which are over 600 km and require more fats in the feeding mix.
Club 307 birds….9th,15th,16th,19th,20th…
Union de Baronie…2466 birds…33rd,47th,52nd,66th,67th,75th
Brabant 2000 Nat.NPO 12,374 birds…56th,129th,141st,190th,191st…
Many congratulations to our club mate J.Pruissen winning the club and 5th NPO. We were a little over 2 minutes behind which meant a 9th place club and 56th NPO ! This is a very competitive club and provincial. Very little room for error. Best way as racing at this level of competition not only numbers but quality of fanciers always develops better birds. No short cuts.
