30 x 1st in 2011 in races of more than 400 km
Superstar of the month :  “De Duif” 2011 in the month June
1st National Gueret  13885 youngsters 2010 

More than  50 x in the top-100 national since 2009

And so much more ……….

This is in a nutshell how we can describe the performances of the Kurt and Raf Platteeuw loft ……. A colony by the way which in a handful of seasons as shot into the air like a rocket. In 2011 they filled their honours list with a.o.  1st prizes from Chateauroux, from Bourges, from La Chatre, from Tours, from Poitiers, from Argenton, from Limoges, from Bordeaux, from Montélimar, from Nantes, from Blois, from La Souterraine and Gueret, all competitions with a minimum of 400 km and even much further . 

** Anno  2011 ……….“Platteeuw  came, saw and won” !!

Over the last few seasons Kurt and Raf  have managed to turn certain competitions to their hand ……. The results below give us an idea of the top quality present in the lofts :

On the 21st of May the well-known classic from Chateauroux was on the programme for  West-Flanders, organised by the I.W.V. , this as preparation for the national competitions .  In the Fond club there were 592 o.b. and Raf and Kurt won :  1 -5 -6 – 7- 9 -11 -13 -14 -15 -16- 19 …..(39/57) and provincial against 5500 o.b. this resulted in:  18 – 73 – 85 ……..(39/57)….By the 177 yearlings in the Fond club they won:  1 -2 -3 – 4 – 5 – 6 – 11 – 12 -15 – 17 ……(19/26) and also at provincial level against 734 yearlings they scored a series of top prizes with :  17 -21 -23 -31 -32 ……(19/26) . An ideal run up then for the Bourges I on the 28th of May………In the Fond club against 161 o.b. Kurt and Raf signed for :  1 – 2 – 3 -4 – 6 -11 ……. (15/20), provincial against 1427 o.b. for :  6 -25 -32 -44 -51 …….. and provincial by the 1388 yearlings for: 9 -18 -42 -50 -65 -87 …….(19/26). The following week it was bingo along the entire line from the national Chateauroux from the KBDB,  we devote a separate piece to this ! We are writing about the 18th of June …… the race from La Chatre: in the Fond club 190 o.b. in which they began with the  1st and 2nd prize , with the1st and 2nd nominated, plus 5/7, plus  by the 217 yl :  5 -6 -7 -10 -11 – 14 -15 ….. and 22/33. On the 25th of June 8 pigeons were entered for Limoges…. In the Fond club against 112 p Kurt and Raf achieved:  2  -4 -8 -11 -13 …… and 6/8. From the Argenton on the 2nd of July they basketted 210 yearlings in the Fond club ….. it was the umpteenth competition in which Kurt and Raf destroyed the opposition ,…once again they clocked a series of top prizes with a.o. the :  1- 3- 4- 5- 7 - 8- 11- 13 …..(20/33). A week later 12 o.b. went to Brive …. In the W.F.V. against 406 p. they won: 7 -16 -28- 49 – 51 ……(7/12). The youngsters in turn also achieved marvellous results. A few examples : 30/7 Bourges : in the Fond club 210 youngsters :  1 – 2 – 4 – 5- 6 -7 – 8 – 9- 10 ………. On the 27/8 La Souterraine : in the Fond club 121 youngsters:  1 – 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 -9 …………. .

** Superstar “the Nelly  10000” : 07-3192403, the classy hen or the  “Miss Moneymaker” of the loft !

With “the Nelly 10000”  we have landed by ” the golden nugget” in the   elite corps of the colony K & R Platteeuw  !  We can label her as one of the rare superior hens of our national pigeon sport! An ”All-Round hen” number  1  !!

Her honours list emits numerous top results, but what this hen put down on paper in 2011 testifies  exceptional class. In the national Brive in 2010 she won 5000 and 10000 over the entire line and won in 2011 up to 5000 over the entire line in the national Limoges. But that is far from everything !!

Prior to the  2011 season the “Nelly  10000” won a.o.

We let Kurt tell his story about his “Nelly 10000” …….  !

The father of the “Nelly 10000” is a cock from Gerard  Labiau and when his wife passed away much too early I named her after her. The mother of “Nelly 10000” is a daughter of the “world champion” from Vandewalle M & F from Zwalm . This hen came to me via Etienne Devos, where she also the mother of the “Contador” , which a.o. won the 2nd national Brive in 2010.

 The “Nelly 10000” is a summer youngster from 2007 which raced 4 races in her birth year, namely Clermont , Momignies, Brionne and she ended this season with the 11th prize provincial from Tours against 2810 pigeons. This is when she displayed her first signs of class ! In 2008 she won from Bourges  I a.o. the 1st interprovincial and the 26th national. The  following week I basketted with a head wind ( south westerly wind) for the well-known Orleans in Rekkem-Tielt. I was the only one from my area and the nearest fanciers lived approx. 25 km to the east…… it was actually like committing suicide, in a manner of speaking ! I entered 6 hens and everyone declared me insane ! With a south western wind making headway against Deerlijk, Vinkt, Deinze ……. And then Orléans which is near the middle line …. Together with the “Lady Fritz”, the “Nelly 10000” stormed in from a northern direction.. The “Lady Fritz” remained on the roof, the “Nelly 10000” went directly inside …… to be honest ….. I feared the worst …..  but when the result came out, my “Nelly 10000” had won the 8th prize and the “Lady Fritz” the 25th against 1190 pigeons. In 2009 the “Nelly 10000” carried on in the same manner and won various top prizes.  In 2010 she had a brilliant result in the national Brive, along with the “Louis” ……. Perhaps having deviated a little from her line, she returned home like lightening from a north eastern direction …… I have never seen a pigeon return home like that before ….. she literally fought to the last metre……. she won the 329th national and to 10000. The “Louis” won the 68th national and they were my first two nominated pigeons…. it was therefore bingo over the entire line! After such a wonderful career we thought that in the in-between season 2010-2011 the “Nelly 10000” could lose some steam for 2011 …… quite the contrary …. she literally put the icing on the cake, something which demonstrates the unique character of this super hen.  It is a fact that I race my hens for as long as they perform….. The “Nelly 10000” started  in 2011 with top prizes straight away from Clermont, Tours ( 3rd from 454 p) and from Chateauroux ( 13th from 592 p) …. She then stayed home for a week, followed by the winning of the 1st from Limoges against 371 p and the 22nd national, she stayed home a week again and was then entered for La Chatre ….. she won the 2nd prize in the Fond club against 190 pigeons. The following week she won the 5th from Tours / 107 p and her last race was Brive .  She raced her entire career in widowhood and could easily race all distances, has a great deal of long distance and a unique character. I will probably never breed another such classy pigeon! In whatever weather conditions she was always there. “

  • In the  national Chateauroux on the 4th of June  ……. K & R Platteeuw achieved a score to make your head spin!

It was waiting to happen …… in the preparatory races, namely from  Chateauroux I.W.F. and Bourges Kurt and Raf scored top prizes one after another, therefore the expectations for the Chateauroux organised by the KBDB were exceptionally high. What would happen!!  They gambled quite a lot of money on this race as their birds were in excellent condition.  Result was bingo over the entire line with a compliment for the yearlings! Judge it for yourself!!
