The second official race has been completed (Wednesday 29th of August 2012). It was necessary to wait with the release because of the rain, which was quickly moving from the Austrian border to the North. Some provinces organised their first races on that same day (in Slovakia August 29 is a national holiday (in memory of the Slovak National Uprising), so to avoid the clashing and mixture of flocks of birds, we waited till 8:15 am to liberate the birds.
137 new pictures of official race nr. 2 - here.
The pigeons were released at 8:15 in Přerov (Czech Republic). At approx. 10:13 three pigeons had arrived, which were followed by a group of 4 pigeons. They were circling around the loft a few times. It took about 20 minutes until 1/3 of the pigeons were clocked.
Now the clocking list is divided between a competition for old fanciers and a competition for young fanciers.
