On friday 28th of April our car started to small city Schmelz/Saarland, near French border to meet Dagmar and Klaus Geraldy to pick up the pigeon Training Trailer, which should take our pigeons safe and comfortable first to Island Sylt, later to Liberationpoints for Training and Price races.
Thank you Dagmar and Klaus Geraldy for Sponsoring this nice Trailer!
At Annette and Heinz Missy in Käshofen near Bad Homburg we collected the first pigeons. After a great evening with friends the trip to Toni Deigner started early in the morning of 29.th of April.
Thank you Annette and Heinz for the great hospitality!
Thanks as well to Tonis preparation, so that the truck could leave early in time to the next stop direction Langgöns.
At Karl-Heinz Lang’s “Food shop for pigeons” the great Meeting of collectors for One-loft-races all over the world was celebrated: at this place “Romanians” were changed against “Netherlands” and “Germans” were changed against “Danish” and “Portugies”. Among all those People: Karl-Heinz himself – Monitoring everything!
Our Truck started again direction Dorsten and Waltrop to pick up pigeons at Werner Waldow and Bernd Wulhorst.
At Werners home a lot of pigeons already were waiting to travel to Island Sylt. Thankful to Werners great preparation the pigeons were basketed very quick and the car could start to the last stop for the day at Lücking in Löhne.
Time enough for the pigeons to eat and drink some fresh water.
The day before Sjaak Buwalda delivered the pigeons of the netherland and belgium participants, as well as a big number of parcels containing pigeons arrived last week. So all those hopeful Youngsters were basketed early in the morning of 30th of April starting for the last part of the trip. Dirk Sandeck in Müden and Olaf Gehrken in Lütjensee were the last stop before Niebüll leave dry land – to get the Car-Train to Island Sylt.
This was the last part of the Long trip from the south of Germany to high up to the North: the Train which took our truck to Island Sylt to the beautiful place “Gut Söl’ring” in Wennigstedt-Braderup.
A Little bit tired, a Little bit exhausted – but full of curiosity in the new home!
Good night – sleep well – see you tomorrow!
