Magnificent end to the short middle distance season of Marco Klein-Falckenborg!

In 2008 Marco Klein Falckenborg had a super season, with numerous top prizes and strong series in the short middle distance races. Let’s take a look at what the 2009 season has brought... The pigeons came well and collectively home from the start of the season. The 9th of May was the seasonal Overture in district 9 where the small middle distance was concerned. Directly in this first small middle distance race the “Eijerkamp Van Loon” colony showed what they were made of.


They started with a 4th NPO. That this was not a one-off was proved in the rest of the rankings in the CC Achterhoek in district 9:
Pithiviers 533 Km  880 pigeons:
1-4-7-10-11-13 etc     41 entered and 27 prizes   66%
The yearling widower that achieved this victory is an inbreed to the kannibaal from Van Dijck. The father is a grandson brother kannibaal and the mother is a granddaughter of the kannibaal via G. Lahuis uit Sleen.

Then on the 23rd of May, Orleans was on the programme:
Orleans 569 Km 852 pigeons:
1-4-8-9-10-11 etc 38 entered and 28 prizes 74%
The 2-year old widower that achieved this victory and also a 14th NPO is a cock out the best Eijerkamp-Van Loon lines. He is a cousin of Missouri Girl from Beute and son from Wilhelminaoord.
This cock, Missouri’s Wonder, has already delivered many top performances:
14th NPO  Orleans    569 Km   5.435 pigeons
18th NPO St. Quentin    338 Km 20.749 pigeons
27th NPO Frankfurt       533 Km    1.885 pigeons
28th NPO Chateaudun   579 Km   6.978 pigeons


Missouri's Wonder


But hadn’t the form arrived too early in the lofts in Beltrum? What about the rest of the season? That would be proved in the race from Chateaudun. The pigeons had to wait until Monday before being released into the skies. It had already been predicted in advance that this would have an effect on the cocks, however, the hens took over flawlessly, with the result being the 10th NPO.
Chateaudun 579 Km 627 pigeons:
1-3-6 etc 39 entered and 18 prizes 46%
The hen that made sure of this victory is a granddaughter of Bonte Leontien. Bonte Leontien is mother of no less than 10 first prize winners in the small middle distance. The grandchildren have now also a wide variety of top performances in their honours lists.
The hen that won the 1st prize in the CC Achterhoek is called Miss Twente, and also knows what “front” racing is:
Miss Twente NL08-5800957
11th NPO   Chateaudun 579 Km 6.978 pigeons
29th NPO   Chateauroux          682 Km   1.831 pigeons
50th NPO   Blois  624 Km 4.751 pigeons

Then a national flight from Blois. Joint liberation with more than 50.000 pigeons. Once again, the colony from Beltrum showed what they were worth in the CC Achterhoek from district 9.

Blois 624 Km 500 pigeons:
2-3-5-6-7-9 etc 34 entered and 20 prizes 59%
In the NPO competition this meant 26-27-44-55-57-65 etc.
The fastest of the loft this time was Blue Pearl, a grandson of the super breeder Chicago in the lofts of Eijerkamp. This cock is made of the right stuff and has already achieved the following top prizes:
25th   NPO Blois        3.107 pigeons
27th   NPO Munchen  2.981 pigeons
105th NPO Orleans    5.363 pigeons

5 Arras                    195 pigeons

6 Orleans                108 pigeons

Then the season starts to get longer and leaves its impact. Then Bourges is on the programme. Once again more than 600 Km for the pigeons, and yet again a real tough case for the colony from Beltrum.

Bourges 630 Km 467 pigeons:
2-3-4-15-16 etc 36 entered and 23 prizes 64%
In the NPO competition this resulted in the following scores: 20-33-34 etc.
The hen, named Lady Demily,  who ensured this performance is also made of the right stuff. As a yearling this year she has also performed to her maximum with the following results:
20th NPO Bourges   630 Km  4.081 pigeons
48th NPO Blois        624 Km 3.107 pigeons
90th NPO Chateaudun  579 Km 6.978 pigeons
She is a granddaughter of the Verkinderen from Lilliane Demily from Moorsele. And one of the rising stars at the front in the strong KBDB. The loft with pigeons with which the Bosua’s have already been very successful, the stock based on the Figo line from Reynaert. Mother of Lady Demily is a daughter of Brother Figo from Willy Vanhoutte.

Lady Demily

Then on the 18th of July 2009 there is the national race from Chateauroux on the programme. The pigeons had confirmed the good condition in the previous weeks, but was it still the case? The distance is nothing less than 682 Km.
The question once again had a positive answer. It was Lady Demily who managed once again to be at the top of the results, with as result a 12th NPO against 1.831 pigeons. With this, her performance this season is:
12th NPO Chateauroux 682 Km 1.831 pigeons

48th NPO Blois        624 Km 3.107 pigeons
90th NPO Chateaudun  579 Km 6.978 pigeons

In the strong cc Achterhoek it resulted in the following series against 442 pigeons from Chateauroux
3-5-6-23-28-29-30 etc 30 entered and 17 prizes 57% prize.

The short middle distance season was closed with the national race from Frankfurt ad Oder. Here the Klein Falckenborg lofts once again showed what they were made of. This time it was father Jan who had the 22nd Teletext notation for the Klein Falckenborg lofts. It was namely a very tough race whereby only a few pigeons managed to achieve a velocity of above the 1000 metres. Included amongst them was Naomi, who shot out of the air at 15h42, good enough for a 4th National Frankfurt in Sector 2 and 3 against 2.455 pigeons!

Her mother is the `Amsterdammertje`, a hen from Wim van Klaverstijn from Amsterdam. She is a daughter of Massah, 2nd best cock WHZB and of Superlady, 6th best pigeon WHZB.

Amsterdammertje is in her short breeding career already mother of 2 Teletext pigeons
