Steveninck Benny, "One of the best Middle Distance racers from the area"


Benny Steveninck, Hamme-Zogge (BE)


Hamme
is one of the 65 municipalities of the Belgian province East Flanders. It lies quite central in the Flanders, almost in the middle of the Gent - Antwerp - Brussels triangle and is easily reached via the road. In the rural Hamme-Zogge lives Benny Steveninck, married to Karin D'Hoey and father of four children. Benny has raced pigeons with his wife Karin since 1998. Just like most fanciers, they started with the sprint, but soon transferred to the Middle Distance, up to say 600km.

Racing system:
The classic widowhood is raced with 23 widowers and for the first time in 2007 also with 12 hens. The steady partner of the hens doesn't take part in the races. The future was guaranteed with the breeding of 100 youngsters (1st and 2nd rounds). They are raced with the sliding door method.

Breeding loft:
Benny and Karin have 24 breeding couples who take part in the winter breeding and are paired at the end of November. They are made up of 60% descendants from the "Chipo" line, complemented with well-known pedigrees such as : Willy Vanhoutte (Wevelgem), Michel Hauttekiet (Rudervoorde), Eric Broodcorins (Idergem), Geert en Clara Phillips (Grembergen).
