The organisers of the international pigeon race from PAU (23 May 2017), the Colombe Joyeuse, have decided, in agreement with the foreign organisers and the KBDB, due to
- the bad weather conditions in PAU, namely dense clouds in the valleys
- the fact that the weather conditions will persist for days
to relocate the convoy to Mont-de-Marsan. The trucks will be arriving there at around 7pm. The new coordinates: +435502,00/-03029,00.
