Frequently they are found on Teletext and in the pigeon magazines, Despite the unfavorable location of Tiel in Section 7 Central Netherlands.


In 1980; while living in Andelst the first contacts were recorded with local pigeon fanciers. And the first “freebies” were a fact. The fact that these “freebies” still in the pedigree of the current toppers are reflected immediately so meant in '80 a hit. A flying start 1981 with a first and a second prize at the first two flights which were attended did the urge to taste and glory of victories only increase. Purchases of cracks in the region during the years 1984 to 1987 along with having two excellent breeding hens were responsible for the performance of various results in big bang. The move in 1985 Tiel was found 1986 to have on the colony witness not adversely affect the 4! victories in the LCF Teysterbant; then 500 membered.
