Luc Christiaens (Ooigem, BE) wins provincial first prize in West Flanders Argenton yearlings

Luc has been doing very well in 2013, just as in previous seasons. He has won a number of great prizes this year, including a provincial victory from Argenton.

This fancier can look back on a career with plenty of national and provincial Ace Pigeon titles and top results one weekend after the other.  The champion from Ooigem wanted his pigeons to do well in this year’s national race from Argenton. He basketed ten old birds and ten yearlings. The race was a big success; just take a look at the results of his team of yearlings:

Fondclub      277 old birds: 5-32-32-35-36-55-90
Provincial  2,501 old birds: 20-155-156-162-164-307-414 (7/10)
Fondclub      458 yearlings: 1-3-5-8-13-19-28-29-38-44
Provincial  3,024 yearlings: 1-8-14-24-42-62-100-109-133-155 (10/10)
