Last weekend, a couple of Falconry competitions were held in Felanitx, more precisely in Son Valls, where champions were crowned in three categories, IX Campeonato de Halconería de Balears, V Campeonato de Sky Trial and II Campeonatos de Velocidad. Somehow I missed the event, what with the excitement of the Reyes and all, hence I had to borrow a photo from the Internet. To my surprise I then came across an announcement for another Falconry tournament coming up in Campos this coming weekend, the I Campeonato Mallorquin de Cetreria. That’s a lot of tournaments of Falconry. How exciting. I will try to not miss the forthcoming event in Campos, January 14th – 15th, at Finca Sa Barrala. I hope I will be able to find the venue.
