And last, but not least, let me introduce our 500 km winner, 2811 CU 98 EDM, bred by Roland Zacharias of Edmonton, Alberta.: This hen came all by herself 5 minutes ahead of the competition after 10.5 hours on the wing. She certainly was a welcome sight for all of us waiting for the birds.
She is the grandmother of CU 2001 EDM 3260, winner of 2nd overall and $2460.- in the 2001 Alberta Classic Derby. We succeeded in keeping him in the Alberta Classic Stock Loft to breed entries for participants.
