Discus magazines about discus in Belgium?
As you know, I responded positively and with great pleasure the invitation of Eddy Leysen the president of the Belgian club "Discusvrienden" in order to participate in the discus assessment of the contest "Vivarium 2018 ".
This trip in Belgium allowed me to meet passionate Belgian discus guys which were very convincing.
Convincing of which subject?
I sometimes get requests from our Belgian friends on many topics goshawks discus. After this trip brought me to the heart of the event "VIVARIUM", I could appreciate the vitality in my opinion too unknown of the " Discusvrienden" .
I bring my modest contribution to try to fix this by inviting my Belgium friends to discover this club and… his really stunning "Discusvriend magazine"! A monthly that has only one disadvantage for us French speakers: It is only available in Dutch.
My friends from the Discusvrienden club will answer me: You just have to learn our language Yann! Ahahahah
After browsing some available issues, I was rather impressed with the quality of the topics and the magazine itself.
So imagine what was my joy when I discovered my winner picture 2018 in cover page.
One of the few magazines still fully dedicated to discus, probably one of the last in the world… So Belgian and Dutch friends… Do not hesitate to subscribe!
