The first National race of the season was flown from Falaise on the 28th April, and the first three open positions were to members of the same club. So, I had to wait until clocks were checked in the evening until I could make firm arrangements to visit the lofts of Paul & Simon Daws.

CO & PIET VERBREE - A Magnificent 2015!

Co and Piet Verbree

Putten is a village in the province of Gelderland, in the centre of the Netherlands. There, nature is still at its best, there is still a lot of agriculture, and there are many poultry farmers in the area. It is also a heavily forested area, and birds of prey are causing a lot of trouble for the pigeon fanciers. Gelderland still has a number of pigeon fanciers that can easily hold its own with the averages in the other Dutch provinces.
