A unique prize
With each Christmas PIPA looks for a special prize, in the form of a youngster of a renowned pigeon. And just like last year we have managed to come up with none other than a grandchild of 1st International Barcelona 2013 New Laureaat, gifted by Carlo Gyselbrecht. As you know, New Laureaat carries the name of his great-grandfather Laureaat Barcelona, winner of a 1st International Barcelona in 1995 for the Gyselbrecht family. It was an exceptional feat, because Laureaat Barcelona was one of only three pigeons with an average speed of over 1000 m/min in this particularly demanding race.
Place your bet and win!
Would you like to have a grandchild of New Laureaat under the christmas tree? Guess the total revenue (in euros) of the young birds' sale of Gaby Vandenabeele using this form. This auction takes place from 19 December 2016 until the 2nd of January 2017. Click here to find out what this auction has to offer.
This is our prize pool (top three):
- a grandchild of New Laureaat
- a PIPA package with 8 items of your choice
- a PIPA package with 6 items of your choice
Entry is open to both registered and non registered users, but keep in mind every fancier can compete only once. Other bets placed by a fancier under the name of his son, daughter, wife, or uncle will not be valid. The only exception is when a fancier places a bet for family members that race under a different name, and which are thus a member of the KBDB as well. If you submit a bet for a family member that is not a KBDB member, only your first bet will count.
- Anyone who correctly guesses the total revenue of the Vandenabeele auction or anyone with the nearest guess wins the prize. In case of a draw the prize goes to the fancier who made a bet first.
- Every fancier can place only one bet. Bets placed in the name of a family member or any other person who is not a member of the KBDB will not be valid. If you do place more than one bet, only your first entry will count.
- You can only take part in the competition by sending in the form, on which you fill out your address, your contact details and your bet.
Please use numbers only, do not include the words "euro" or "EUR".
- You can send in your form until Wednesday the 21st of December 2016 11:59 pm.
- The winner can choose to have his pigeon sent to him free of charge, or pick it up at PIPA.
Good luck everyone!
