V.d. Kruk - a result from another world!


If you have a little bit interest in beers the city of Grimbergen rings a bell - but we believe that if somebody says Grimbergen to Maurice v.d. Kruk he will think of another memory!

Last Saturday July 15th he and his daughters had a result that they will never forget!

They competed from Grimbergen - 125 km - with the youngsters - and had a pure Van Der Krukken Festival ;-)

From the 3.968 youngsters in Afd. 7 Regio 4:
1-2-7-36-37-46-71 Van der Kruk-van Tuil - 7 youngsters in Top-100
3-4-5-6-8-10-15-16-18-23-25-76-90-93-96 W.J. van der Kruk - 15 youngsters in Top-100
32 Gottel-van Tuil - bred out of a Van der Kruk pigeon
11-12-13-14-21-22 Henk Verkerk - bred by Van der Kruk
31-34-44 Gebr. Van Tuil - bred by Van der Kruk
51-54-60-63 C. Onink - bred out of Van der Kruk pigeons

So in total of all pigeons: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-10-11-12-13-14-15-16-18-21-22-23-25-31-32-34-36-37-44-46-51-54-60-63-71-76-90-91-93-96 in Top-100 - Van Der Kruk Pigeons at different lofts.

The winning youngster EUREKA
The fastest pigeon of Regio 4 and all the other Regios of Afdeling 7 in Grimbergen of a total of 10.172 youngsters and a few thousand old training pigeons was the new superhen NL12-1395193 "EUREKA"

She is a daughter of "EUROGUS" - direct Gust Janssen - out of brother "EURO". Van Der Kruk bought 5 pigeons of Gust Jansen and all 5 have bred Regio, Kring or Fed (UK) winners!
The mother of "EUREKA" is a daughter of "GUS" x "PROMISE", so inbred granddaughter of "De Olympiade", Gust Janssen. TOP bloodlines!
"De 799" - a halfbrother of "EUREKA" - won the last weeks 1 x 1st and 2 x 2nd!!

The youngsters at the loft were born in the end of January. Now they are together - but soon they will be seperated and "played on slidingdoors"

What a fantastic Saturday - a lifetime memory!!
