Frans Peeters from Tilburg in the Netherlands has experienced over 50 years involvement in the sport of pigeon racing and this has included work as an administrator as well as a breeder and racer of pigeons. As a result of his work for the Dutch fancy Frans was awarded with a Gold Medal of Merit by The Dutch National
Organization in 1998 and also with a Gold Medal of Merits by the department Brabant- 2000 in 2002. In fact he is one of the most respected pigeon fanciers in Europe.

The basis of his family of pigeons were descendants of the famous 131 of Jan de Weert from Steenbergen and the Spinlijn of van Wanroy. Other lines included Braakhuis and P.v.d.Eynden as well as the Kuijpers and Hendriks- Bingelder. To be followed by bloodlines of Ernest including a hen of Michell (2nd National Barcelona) and approximately three cocks of the Small Barcelona (6th National Barcelona). Arising from this stock Frans Peeters won 2nd place in the National Championship; 1st, 3rd, 6th and 7th positions at the National Marathon and a 1st and a 3rd position at the South Netherlands Association, and many 1sts in his own region.

Some of his 2004 results are as follows: Bordeaux 852 km. (300 pigeons) 1, 7, 11, 12, 18, 20, 24, 30, 31, 34, 36, 37, 39..etc. (21 out of 28 sent).

Dax 987km. (4,082 pigeons) 103, 108, 224, 762 (4 out of 10). All this from a modest holding of our thoroughbreds.

Frans Peeters is one of those stalwarts of the sport who work hard to improve the situation for the birds and their owners and inspite of their activity on behalf of others win their share of prizes and definitely an enjoyment which they deserve. Hans is the epitome of such fanciers and what would the sport be without them?
