PIPA visits Derby Arona Tenerife 2011

From Friday 18th of March, till Monday 21st of March, Minna Yi and Fien Amez represent PiPa in the 6th Derby Arona Tenerife final race week.

20th of March 2011:

On Sunday the final race week was ended with a great gala event.  The gala took place in the Mare Nostrum Resort, where everybody could enjoy the delicious food, drinks and music.  Guests from all over the world were enjoying the party and everybody had a great time laughing and dancing.

At the end of the evening all winners were celebrated and received their trophees and certificates.

Below we have published the last photos of the Gala event.

 

19th of March 2011:

Saturday was the big day!  Today the remaining 53 birds were released from Fuerte Ventura for the final 300 kilometres race.

The winner is known: The first prize goes to Team E. & J. van der Weijden from the Netherlands.

Second prize goes to Team Columba Canaria from Tenerife and third prize goes to Team Blues Brothers from the United Kingdom.

At this moment, 31 pigeons already entered the lofts. One thing is sure, this final race was a great success!

18th of March 2011:

We arrived on Friday in Tenerife and we were able to visit the lofts immediately.  Although they were empty, because all pigeons were basketed on thursday, it was still wonderful to see how tidy and new everything was.  Friday evening there was a dinner at a local restaurant with all the participants of the race. 

We definitely would like to thank Mr. Jose Ledesma and his wife, Inma for the great generosity they showed us.  It was a pleasure to meet them and to follow everything about the race so closely.  The 6th Derby Arona race was perfectly organised!

We already published the photos from the first days.  More photos will follow soon.

I leave to congratulate all participants in the 2011 Derby Arona Tenerife.

Where once again we can see transparency at the highest level, all the pigeons that arrived at the final test were in excellent health, but as in all the Derbys can only win one.

All pigeons that arrived were big winners, because they fell on hard times is to fly over the sea.

We know how difficult it is for the birds flying in the high seas, be there before the Derby-mos hardest in the world, where the pigeon breeders in competition put their best lines.

I am confident that she made ​​the best edition in 2011 and that 2012 will be another excellent year with big names in the pigeon world to participate.

In this race who win are those pigeons !....., is for them to give a special greeting.

My congratulations to the team of PIPA, on the excellent work done during the final.

By staf Joseph Ledesma, congratulations ....., quality and total transparency.

the gala evening this year was i think the best from the last years,sorry, for all the people that have
had missed them.

the fanciers on the canarian island know that they lost many pigeon´s between the race´s,
some race´s are very hard.they know´s it over 100 years,and every year they learn.
the same with the derby
at the continent they speak a little bit negativ over it,but they must
look to the last barcelona or souston,how many pigeon´s are till now on the way home,and that only
from 1 race.

we will only say THANK YOU!!!!!!
to all the people that works for the derby ,
to the people that basked,transport,feed the pigeons.
all the people in the background,and a special

THANK YOU to JOSE LEDESMA.
