Alwin Petrie (Brummen, NL) looks back on a brilliant 2019 season

Alwin Petrie had already demonstrated his enormous potential in the one day long distance, and he ended the season in style with some excellent results in the young birds' competition as well.
 
The maestro from Brummen, enjoying the company of his daughter Maaike, gained national fame with great results and several Teletext prizes, and he went on to win ace pigeon titles in different national competitions as well. This is an impressive revival of the magnificent Petrie pigeon breed that has been racing at the highest level for more than three decades.
 
Alwin is proud when he sees his daughter Maaike petting her favourite bird Maaike's Treasure (NL19-7002399). This young hen was the best young bird in the middle distance in Province 8, as well as in the young birds' competition NPO. She was also a 4th Nat. young bird in the Allerbeste competition and 7th in the PIPA Rankings. "And Maaike does everything herself", a proud Alwin explains. "She was very successful with a number of her birds. She goes straight to the pigeon loft after school, and she releases the pigeons or calls them back in when I'm still at work. It's fantastic!"
 
It looks like Maaike has been blessed with the pigeon fanciers' gene of the Petrie family. An Maaike's enthousiasm in turn motivates Alwin even more; you can tell from his results. In fact, Alwin had not been as dedicated as he used to in the first few years after his rather troubled move. However, he regained his confidence in 2019 with Maaike by his side, and his pigeon family is back on track indeed. Alwin has been winning quite a number of teletext prizes this year; we take a look at his 2019 palmares:

As the young birds' season started, Alwin had 58 pigeons at the ready, along with 18 pigeons of his daughter Maaike. And they did really well almost from day one, despite an unfortunate training flight in late June, where several birds got lost. Alwin and Maaike have some excellent results to their name in the young birds' competition:

Like we said earlier, the team was euphoric after a fantastic old birds' season. And things got even better in August and September, with perhaps an even stronger young birds' season. It was in part thanks to some talented newcomers that they were able to claim one top result after another. In the end, Alwin and Maaike managed to win several national championships titles as well. The three stars of the 2019 season are New Gigi and Champion 39 of Alwin Petrie, and of course Maaike's Treasure from the Maaike Petrie loft.
