PigeonParadise.Com is what they call a “Portal Site”. It contains loads of interesting pigeon information, mainly in English and Dutch, but more and more Pipa.be ( abbreviation of PigeonParadise.Com) tries to publish German as well as French information. Now the auctions are translated in even Taiwanese and Chinese language.
The first version of pigeonparadise was created by Mr. Freddy Thienpont who started the first racing pigeon website on the world wide web. The first name of the site was “Racing Pigeons All over the world”. Afterwards Freddy was so busy with his work that he couldn’t manage all the work properly. That’s when Nikolaas came in and suggested Freddy to help. Finally Nikolaas managed the whole site and Freddy quit completely.
At present, not only Nikolaas, but also Mr. Martin Degrave is a very important key member of the Pipa-team. He became the chief editor. Dr. Carlo Gyselbrecht is doing the supervision of the health from the pigeons that are for sale, and also a lot of administration regarding the FAMOUS PIPA Online Auctions. In the beginning of 2005 PIPA even organised a fund raising auction for the victims of the TSUNAMI disaster, they collected the full amount of 100.000 EURO !
Thomas Gyselbrecht, son of Carlo and brother of Nikolaas, is maintaining and supervising the online auctions. His time is also taking up by the off line sales which became a big part of PIPA’s business occupations.
We certainly may not forget Luna Lai, who is doing the representation in Asia of the PIPA site, together with Mr William Chen.
Nikolaas is mainly doing the marketing, maintaining the advertisement
on PIPA, coordinating the website and trying to help where it is necessary.
Pipa couldn’t be what it is now without the many volunteers
and free lance writers from all over the world. In this way we
would like everybody who helped us to make PIPA the biggest site in pigeon
