STOCK BUILDING

When Etienne Meirlaen took a new start in the year 2000, he had the intention to build a loft for the ‘Long Distance’ and especially the ‘Very Long Distance’ races like Barcelona, Perpignan, Narbonne, Dax etc... the ‘Marathons’ of the air. So he went to actual toplofst to buy pigeons, to build his own pigeontree. The first birds that came on the new loft, are obliged to prove their abilities on the races. After this provements, a few of them went to the breeding-loft, the others formed the basis for the new racing-team.
The stock-building at this moment is based on the birds from this ‘capital’ investment in actual topbirds for the ‘long distance races’. For this, Etienne knocked at the door by next topracers:

- Van Damme-Boddaert, Oostkamp
Through his friendship with the famous pigeonwriter Herman Van Damme (better known as ‘reporter Gerry’), Etienne became a collection young birds from all the ‘top breeders’ from the famous Van Damme-Boddaer-loft! I was a shot bang on the target! The topracer and actual topbreeder ‘the KLEINE RAKET’ was a direct Van Damme-Boddaert-bird, and the famous ‘MARATHON LADY’ is born out direct birds from the toploft from Oostkamp.
- Antoine Van Hove, Loppem
As treasurer from the ‘Brugse Barcelonaclub’, Etienne became a good friend from mister Antoine Van Hove (the president of this Brugse Barcelonaclub), in Belgium better known as on of the most important persons from the top-footballteam of ‘Club Brugge’. In Loppem, Etienne could buy direct children from the Florizoone- and Gyselbrechtbirds. One of those direct Van Hove-birds was the winner of the ‘GOLDEN WING 2006’ from Barcelona in the ‘Brugse Barcelonaclub’!
- Cor De Heyde, Made (Nl)
- Wijnants & Zoon, Maastricht (Nl)
- Gubbelmans (De pure Jan Theelenduiven)
- Sylvere Toye, Otegem
Direct from the ‘Invincible Montauban’ van Caesaert or the winner 1st National Montauban, and a real superbreeder on the Toye lofts.
- Brothers F.Desbuquois - -Michel & Didier, Kapelle Op Den Bos, the winners of the 1st National Barcelona in 2006!
- Robert Buysse, Ertvelde: a “Sister Supercrack” (the Supercrack was 5° Nat. Ace pigeon ‘Grand Distance’ KBDB 2006) and a “Brother Mr Europe”( full brother of the ‘1° West-European Ace pigeon 2001’: “Mr Europe” and the “Kleine Donkeren” winner 2° Nat Pau).
This “Brother Mr Europe” is also father of the “Perpignan Queen” 752/05: winner 2° Prov Perpignan 703 p (after loft companion), 10° Nat 5.547 p and 3° Intnat 3.131 hens!

This are all birds which already succeeded on the Etienne Meirlaen lofts, and already proved their ‘world class’ derivation on the ‘long distance races’ or at the ‘breeding loft’.
