Comb. J. Hommes & Znn – Akersloot
The best Overall (morning & afternoon release) Marathon loft of The Netherlands in 2018!!
The Comb. Hommes & Znn are father Jan, Nick and Rens. Jan is married to Engelien and together have 3 children, 2 sons and a daughter. Jan (61) is from the age of 14 in the pigeons and is professionally an inventor in the construction industry, Nick (27) from the age of 16 in the pigeons and safety expert and Rens (19) has grown up between the pigeons and is student carpenter. The three of them practice the sport and get help from friend Nico who closes the lofts during the day when the three men are working. Since a little over ten years they have specialized completely on the overnight and ZLU flights under the name Comb J. Hommes and Znn and since a few years Jan and his sons are part of the best fanciers in the very strong Extreem long distance provinces Noord- & Zuid-Holland. And than came 2018: a season they will never forget.
The highlights were:
Winners of the “Beker van Vlaanderen” (1st 10 nominated pigeons at Barcelona international! They had 10/10 prizecards! A 100% score. Knowing that Barcelona was a very hard edition once more, and realizing the distance their pigeons will have to fly (1.260km) this was an outstanding performance of their Barcelona birds)
