Fanciers could take part in our 2019 PIPA Christmas quiz until Saturday Evening 28th of December 23.59 CEST. Fanciers across the globe took their chance; we received a total of 2,366 entries. Meanwhile, the Peter Janssen auction closed last Sunday, and Peter sold his nine pigeons for a total of 33,200 euro. The auction proved a major success, and many fanciers had expected a lower total revenue: just under 70% of all competitors had guessed a total revenue of less than 33,200 euro.
The pigeon that our quiz was all about: BE19-4185114
Three fanciers had guessed the exact overall revenue of 33,200 euro, and they were hence in the top three of our quiz. The rules stipulated that the point in time at which fanciers submitted their guess would determine the new owner of the youngster of a full brother of Porsche x Miss Tarzan of the PIPA Elite Center. Here are the results:
1. Koos Van den Heerik (NL) submitted the correct answer on 24th of December 2019.
2. Erich Schröder (DE) submitted the correct answer on 26th of December 2019.
3. Dirk Van Echelpoel (BE) submitted the correct answer on 28th of December 2019.
Congratulations Koos, we will get in touch with you to make sure that the pigeon reaches its destination.
