Albert Derwa-Luxem (Herent, BE) simply ‘outstanding’ in 2011!

The colony of Albert and Francine Derwa-Luxem belong undeniably in 2011 to the most laureate of our country. The closing nationals more than proved this with double provincial victory from La Souterraine and 2 x 2° Prov from Gueret!

Will Albert and Francine have to visit the tailor for an extra ‘suit’, and an extension of the feminine wardrobe with all the festivities and ceremonies in whichh they have to stand on many a podium? During 2011 the Derwa-Luxem colony could not be kept out of the news, was in the ‘spotlight’ of all the pigeon media almost every week… probably resulting in many titles, even up to national level!

From the beginning of the season to about the middle of July, it was the brothers ‘Primo’ and ‘De Zoon’ who were the eye catchers, not only by landing at the trap in Herent together almost every week, but also by this resulting in a beautiful series of victories up to provincial level with close places of honour up to national level!

At that moment the excellent team of yearlings (with ‘DE Zoon’ as leader) piloted the Derwa-Luxem colony straight to ‘pole position’ as ‘top candidate’ for the national championship yearlings KBDB, with a record coefficient which will be well under the 8% (over 6 races)! The Derwa-pigeons made ‘mincemeat’ of the opposition every week, and they had hardly recovered from their ‘uppercut’… when the young foals from the Derwa-colony began a real triumphal march with resounding victories up to provincial level! The 2 closing national races of the 2011 sport season ended on a climaxonce again, with double provincial victory from La Souterraine with the 1° Provincial victory by both the old birds an the youngsters… something which the Derwa-pigoens repeated from Gueret, but where they had to be content with the closest place of honour by both the old birds and the youngsters at 2° place Provincial! Both races, as closure for 2011… were the ‘apotheoses’ for a superior racing season at all levels, probably my ‘best’ ever, adds a still proud Albert jokingly! The concise summary with the highlights from 2011 at the bottom of this article only go to prove this even more!

The breeding gold of ‘Paulien’

The most noticeable fact in all this beauty is the part the ‘Paulien’-line played in this chain of top successes. It is her direct children and brothers and sisters especially which signed for this chain of top successes!

The core of this success story actually started by the extra breeding mother ‘Valeska’  ring B04-2180106…  not just any old hen, as daughter of the ‘Dreamteam-couple’ by Albert Derwa. She was self a.o. 1° Ace bird ‘Sans-Peur’ Herent Middle distance (for her complete performance list: click here). One of her best well-known daughters, and without doubt the most important link in the chain… is ‘Paulien’ ring B06-2090139 (so out ‘Father Paulien 027/99’ x ‘Valeska 106/04’), which was self a.o. 8° Nat Ace bird ‘Grand Middle distance’ 2007.  Her racing career was a chain of ‘highlights’, of ‘flashes of class’ , with the most interesting being

Racing in front from the sprint up to provincial and national level in the ‘grand middle distance’, admit it… it is not for many! And then we haven’t even said a word about the breeding results of the figurehead of the Derwa-Luxem colony, namely ‘Paulien’ herself! Let us limit ourselves to her 2 most important sons, namely ‘Primo’ and ‘De Zoon’ :

Admit it, not many of us can bathe in the ‘luxury’ of such a wealth of ‘top talent’, of real ‘class’… as Albert and Francine Derwa-Luxem! And then we haven’t even mentioned the other toppers (both racing and breeding pigeons)  residing in the lofts in Herent, who also demanded their share in the beautiful series of performances (below) flown together by the Derwa-team! Derwa-Luxem is simply a name which we will see appearing at the top of numerous championships over the coming months, not least on our national podium of the KBDB in Ostend! Albert has achieved a season that anybody would sign on the dotted line for, or, as he himself says,… probably his best ever!

A look at the ‘highlights’ of 2011, an ‘outstanding’ performance level!
