The year before Robin Smeets & Piet Penris won two beautiful silver National medals in the grueling ZLU season of 2018! At Marseille they won the 2nd International and at Barcelona they also won a silver medal in the prestigious GOLDEN ACEPIGEON ZLU ranking. These prizes were won by two very good pigeons, straight from the foundation birds of their strong extreme long distance loft which in the backyard of Robin’s (step) parents Penris, living in Urmond, Limburg.
As of last season however, they focussed only on the marathon and in particular the ZLU. Robin renovated his new house where he and his wife and children are living since the beginning of this year. Also did he build a great new loft setup in the garden of his new house, from where Comb. Smeets-Penris will start with team of youngsters for the future ZLU flights.
The base of this very successful season (and the top seasons in 2017 & 2018) is somewhere around the beginning of this century. As a teenager, Robin had some pigeons and Piet became more and more involved with the hobby of his son. From 2009 the men started to clock early pigeons on the long distance races, where a very nice result at Provincial Periqueux (morning release) gave the energy to continue on the marathon: 36, 84, 109 and 318 (only 4 pigeons basketted) against 3.620 Provincial pigeons on their debut gave a huge boost.
So, the start of their beautiful debut result and the basic pigeons who are responsible for the current successes lies in Neer. In 2004 Robin went to the famous brothers Piet & Andre Kuypers who found the youthful enthusiasm of the then 16-year-old Limburger so heart-warming that Robin got 4 youngsters of the noblest origin as a present! Two of these Kuypers pigeons are the current stock pigeons and the “Oude Kuypers van 2004” became the foundation breeder of their colony. At the age of 14 this pigeon is still very fresh and fruity and still fertilizes everything. Incidentally, we (from Pigeoncom) rarely had such a beautiful, breedy pigeon in our hands! An incredible top pigeon is that old Kuypers crack!
“De Oude Kuypers” is the father to Avatar, the 2nd National Gouden Barcelona pigeon 3 years. Avatar won the 51st National Barcelona in 2016, 115th National Barcelona in 2017 and 227th National Barcelona in 2018 and won the silver spot in the NATIONAL GOUDEN ASDUIF ranking and is now one of the topbreeders in the breedingloft!
His nest sister, the second Gebr. Kuypers pigeon from 2004 which has made a big mark on the Smeets-Penris colony, is the basis for the 2nd International prize Marseille 2018. This super cock, Bennie Batman flew in 2016 and 2017 already the 272th and 263rd prize National Marseille and with the 2nd National (also 2 International) in ’18 he became the 6th National Ace pigeon Marseille over 3 years.
