The name of Marien Orgers of Hekelingen, Holland, will be new to many readers in the sport of pigeon racing but through this brief insight I hope to introduce a specialist at races between 850 to 1175 kms. In fact many would consider this family amongst the top of the Dutch fancy.

Determined to do good, in fact more than good, our subject purchased thebest of the European class distance racer whichincluded the bloodlines of the well known Aarden based BakkerBarendrecht and Cools families plus the strain of Chris vander Velden and the Batenburg vd Eijnden pigeons of AP Overwater.

Some interesting results of recent years: Montauban (6,781 pigeons), 13in the race and 9 prizes: 51, 296, 348, 465, 593,779, 845, 1153 and 1154. Pau (2,792 pigeons), 2 in the race 2 prizes:107 and 253. St Vincent (7,999 pigeons) 16 in the race and 9 prizes: 568, 656, 683, 861, 1121,1197, 1288, 1327 and 1480. Dax (4,578 pigeons) 16 in the race and 9 prices: 244, 263, 282, 552, 557, 665, 707, 734 and 1027. Bergerac (11,953 pigeons) 14 in the race and 10 prizes: 11, 279, 1578, 1672, 1730, 1731, 1859, 2308, 2317 and 2552. Perpignan (7,195 pigeons) 14 in the race and 7 prizes: 70, 442, 568, 628, 663, 720 and 1567. Bordeaux (8,825 pigeons) 38, 96, 704, 817, etc. Also the family was 7th best Barcelona pigeon for a 3 year period in Holland as well as scoring 2nd in the Marathon Attracation Zuid Beijerland Super Long Distance & 1st Overall
Champion Long distance Club De Glazen Stad.

A fine breeder is the Bakker Barendrecht cock bird '261' who as a racer flew 12 times in overnight racing and won 11 good prizes including 21st National St Vincent. One of his daughters '950' is one of the main foundation birds of the Orgers family. Another productive pigeon is the 'Batenburg Hen'- a granddaughter of
the famous 'Bonte Kweker' of Batenburg. Others of note as producers are the 'Braakhuis Hen' and the 'Blauwe Van der Velden'.

Some of the top racers are '339' (de Fijne) which was the winner of about 12 good prizes and was 54th National Ace Pigeon in a table covering a period of 5 years; '769' (de Vale Supercrack) a hen which won 38th National from Bordeaux; '149' ( de Marseille Hen) who won 14th Provincial Marseille and the 98th National
Bordeaux; '125' ( De Barcelona)- this hen has the blood of the Aarden Cools pigeons of Jac Steketee. She has won 8 good prizes in 8 races including the 249th National, 402 National Barcelona in recent years including being the 7th best Dutch Barcelona pigeon for 3 years; '066' (de Bonte 66) is a daughter of the 950 and a grandson of the 261 foundation cock, it won in 2001 288th National Marseille and 277th National Perpignan. Then in 2002 253rd National Pau and 810th National Marseille.

Many are the good results of this family and from a sound basis it will become better known in the new millennium. I await it's flowering with a measure of expectation.
