By OSCAR & LINDA DEVRIES
I am Oscar DeVries, I was born in the Netherlands where the pigeons sport was very popular with great competition. Most cities had multiple clubs and even average sized towns had 1 or 2 clubs. Linda is from Canada and as a young girl raced pigeons with her father, she later raced pigeons on her own. We met about 20 years ago and have since that time flown pigeons together as O&L DeVries. We have enjoyed great success, especially in young birds winning close to 60% of the club races and 33+% of the combine races, also winning opens, Ace pigeons and other championships with the Canadian Racing Pigeon Union, the American Racing Pigeon Union and the Racing Pigeon Digest.
