26/07/2012 - Last weekend the weather was fairly good for racing pigeons, even though on Saturday there were a few showers to be spotted here and there. The wind came from the North. Summer finally came along on Sunday, with a weak north east breeze.
13/06/2012 - The races of Saturday 9th of June were flown at an extremely high pace. The only one responsible for this was the powerful west-southwest wind that helped the pigeons reach speeds of over 1,700 m/min on the shorter distances and middle distances. On Sunday the forecasted rain was delayed, so the speeds were maintained. The racing season has now finally truely started.
