Grand Master positions and titles won in 2020 (Update 18-9-2020)
The pigeon magazine, “Het Spoor der Kampionenen,” introduced the Grand Master championship in 2018. This new championship can be won for each race by the fancier with the best performance.
The ranking is determined by the total points of the pigeons placing in the prizes and dividing that total by the number of pigeons entered in that race by the fancier.
Therefore it is important to have a high prize percentage and placing many pigeons near the top of the race result to obtain a high average.
There are also total standings per category, short distance, middle distance, one-day long distance, young birds and the Natour (after season races) for all of the Netherlands.
Awarding points this way, fanciers throughout the Netherlands can be compared to each other.
It is a competition in which everyone, whether shipping just a few or many pigeons, has a chance of winning or placing in the rankings.
