Reports & News - Karel and Kas Meijers humiliate competition on the final race
You’ve probably read earlier this year that Karel and his son Kas Meijers were absolutely sublime on the fall-races (natoer); we’ve mentioned that earlier on this website. They surely saved the best for last, as the following result clearly shows:
On the 15th of September they basketed 50 pigeons for their final race of the season. Released at 9:15 AM their birds accelerated from Chimay – 318 km – and flagged all other competitors. Their first bird was timed in at 12.48.45 and in the blink of an eye (22 seconds to be exact) they’ve already clocked 12 of them!
The astonishing result against the lot of 17.526 pigeons: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 17, 20, 23, 25, 27, 80, 81, 109, 123, 165, 281, 302, 350, 355, 431, 444, 556, 567 and so on.
A mind-blowing result of 20 in the first 1% of the result sheet (1:100) = 40 %!!!!!!!
35 x 1:10 = 70 %, 42 x 1: 4 = 84 %
Besides the breathtaking series, they also succeeded in trapping the two first nominated birds as the first and second in the entire race.
On Christmas-eve the auction of Kas Meijers will commence on DreamPigeons. He has set apart the youngsters of his very best racers, exclusively for this sale. He will also offer you five pigeons with a lively result sheet; it’s a big opportunity as you will ever get to get hold of the crème de la crème of the breed of Leo Heremans!
