Comb. P & S Verbeek - 10th NPO Cahors!


Comb. P & S Verbeek - father Peter and son Sebastiaan - had a great result from the classic Cahors 894 km.
They basketed 8 pigeons for this race - and their 1st nominated bird HALFBROTHER PERLA NL12-1542132 arrived 4.36 in the night - making 10th NPO Cahors against 4.176 pigeons.

HALFBROTHER PERLA is bred from their basic lines - the sire is ESCOBAR - a fullbrother of MIDNIGHT - and the dam is ROMY - a daughter of the same MIDNIGHT.

Since we have arranged an online auction with P & S Verbeek in October 2014 - allow us to present you this toploft - 1st National Champions Long Distance 2007, 1st National Champions Marathon 2008, 1st Olympiad Sportclass Marathon Cat. E 2009!

Introduction
In Naaldwijk located in the western part of South-Holland province we find P & S Verbeek. This part of the countryside, consisting of several villages, is better known as the Westland. In this area we find millions of square meters of greenhouses. 33 million square feet of glass roof, under which many types of vegetables and flowers are grown throughout the year. Nowhere else in the world there is such a density of greenhouses in an area the size of Westland.
The combination Verbeek consists of Peter and his son Sebastiaan. Peter works as maintenance mechanic of fire-ventilation-hoods, while son Sebastiaan is assistant foreman in the same branch, with the firm Ro. Pa. Tec. The character of Peter can best be described as a committed pigeon-perfectionist - and with a son eager to learn and active in the sport, this combination is a perfect match - hardworking fanciers = super results.

The basic lines of the loft go back to the famous Aarden pigeons. Verbeek got several pigeons from the late Janus Sprenkels, who built his loft from the lines of the famous DE DOLLE, BARCELONA 17, OUD BLAUWTJE, 04-TJE - fantastic and legendary lines - and with the skills of Verbeek crossing with new families, they continue keeping speed and quality in these famous lines of the 60-ties and 70-ties.

We cross our fingers for Verbeek and wish they all the best of luck in the season on the coming long distance flights!
