Saturday 26th of September 2016, the final of the 4th edition of the Golden Algarve One Loft Race in Portugal took place. A final race of 505 Km with 1783 pigeons released at 8.00am. The winning pigeon covered the 505 KM in 8 hours and 21 minutes, which means a speed of 1007 m/m. Below you find a photo report of the final day and some photos of the winning pigeon.
In June 2015, PigeonPhotography had the great honour to photograph the best pigeons of Dr. Guo aka Great Wall in China.
Racing pigeon sport makes the world a small place. Travelling around the world, you can meet up with people having common interests. Since I was a little boy I was fascinated by the racing pigeon sport and one of the important milestones was about 20 years ago.
It has been already 10 years since Jose Ledesma founded his Derby Arona Loft Race. Today the final race took place, for a distance of 275 KM.

It had been on the agenda for quite a while but we eventually made it happen in 2014: a trip to the two upcoming pigeon racing countries India and Bangladesh. We had a three day stay in both the two countries, to learn more about the sport and to visit some of our PIPA clients.
A group from PIPA (Luna, Green, Jianming, Ian, Gary, Nikolaas,...) visited China for about 2 weeks. We had a great time. It was so nice to see many clients back.
November 2014. Nikolaas, Luna, Maggie & Shuping from PIPA, together with Bart Geerinckx visited some important clients in Taiwan. We were received very well and therefore would like to thank everybody for their enormous hospitality.
PIPA made another trip to China at the end of November to visit the pigeon exhibitions of Langfang and Wuhan and to meet several of our PIPA clients in person.
The AU organised their yearly convention in the Gulfcoast Homing Pigeon Club in the Sunshine State Florida. Their 103rd convention was a great success.
