Auction Schoors-De Waele (Adegem, BE): a top class breed built around the golden Louis Van Loon bloodlines

It is for the first time in their long pigeon racing career that the trio Schoors-De Waele will be selling pigeons in a public auction. They are selling their entire team of successful racing birds from 2019 and older.

The Schoors-De Waele trio did not hesitate to work together with PIPA for the very first online auction of their successful pigeon racing career. This renowned Belgian loft consists for 75% of pigeons of pigeon champion Louis Van Loon.

Pigeon fancier Louis Van Loon is well known across the world, he was incredibly strong in both the middle distance and one day long distance in Belgium for years. He was in fact so strong that many clubs wanted to keep him out: he was often banned from local competitions because he was deemed too strong. He claimed numerous provincial and national victories, and his Van Loon breed became an internationally renowned pigeon family. His fantastic achievements caught the attention of a lot of fanciers, and many of them have visited his lofts in Poppel, hoping to find new reinforcements. And several fanciers have found what they were looking for among the top class pigeons of Louis Van Loon, including the Eijerkamp family from Brummen (NL), Gerard Koopman from Ermerveen (NL), as well as ... Schoors-De Waele.

Schoors-De Waele seized their chance in 1999, investing in four Louis Van Loon pigeons from Poppel. Two of them would eventually develop into fantastic stock breeders in their lofts in Adegem: Blauwen Van Loon and Geschelpt Van Loon 492. These are two breeding superstars that laid the foundation for a long series of top results, also at national level: they won a 1st Nat. Montluçon of 14,230 old birds in 2014 (with National Derby) and a 1st Nat. Argenton of 19,858 yearlings in 2018 (with National Looney), and they claimed several national titles as well: 1st General Champion of Belgium KBDB 2003, 2nd General Champion of Belgium KBDB 2010 and 3rd General Champion of Belgium KBDB in 2009. As you know, it takes a top class pigeon family to win so many great results. It is clear that the world class Louis Van Loon family shines through. These pigeons are notoriously strong in the best racing conditions: clear blue skies or races into a headwind. In other words, this is an auction of one of Belgium's leading pigeon families of this century.
