Hamme: When we write this we are end of August and the racing season 2019 is almost over. Especially the national program is at its last races. Once the season is over we can make a balance, conclusions are drawn and everybody has to think for himself whether they had a good season or not.
From one fancier we already know for sure that he is satisfied with what his pigeons achieved in 2019 and this is the East-Flemish top colony from Carine and Benny Steveninck from Hamme. Introducing them is the same as kicking in an open door as the already set top results like the several national victories and national KBDB ace bird titles are more then known worldwide.

A little bit of history.
The Steveninck colony knew his start in 1998…pigeon sport wasn’t a strange thing to Benny as also father Raymond was a driven pigeon fancier. When Benny married his lovely wife Carine, he was already racing for several years in tandem with his father. Carine felt that he was spending too much time as his parental house on the lofts and suggested to start racing pigeons from their own garden. Said and done and a miracle later Carine was hit by the pigeon germ as well and became a very driven and enthusiastic fancier. Benny, who worked for years as a train driver for our National rail roads had very irregular working hours and had to work also very often by night. Without the help of Carine the colony wouldn’t be what it is now. Benny has retired since a few years now and can fully concentrate on his favourite waste of time : pigeon sport !

The phenomenon “Chipo”!
Benny decided at the contrary to many other fanciers who start of first on the short distance races to go immediately onto the middle distance races. He went to visit the West-Flemish top fancier Willy Van Houtte from Wevelgem and put about 10 youngsters in his basket. Benny and Carine had rather quick success with these Van Houtte-pigeons and during the coming years he bought dozen other pigeons from this loft. These Van Houtte-pigeons got the reinforcement of other different strains.

They had their fair share of prizes but everything started to snowball in 2003 when the top pigeon ‘Chipo’ was born. This fantastic cock won as a youngster 1st Dourdan 571 b.,1st Dourdan 375b., 2nd Dourdan 1,316b., 9th Dourdan 1,268b., 9th Dourdan 339b., 10th Dourdan 964b. and so on…and made it to 1st Provincial Ace bird East-Flanders. This top bird is at fathers’ side a pigeon from Sylvain Verstraete x a daughter out of the 1st Nat. La Souterraine (Eddy Leutenez)... on mothers’ side it is a Jozef Vandamme- Dendermonde. Many professional buyers made an offer to be able to put his golden cock in their basket. Benny declined resolute every offer and later that season he basketed ‘Chipo’ again. A golden move apparently as also as a year bird he showed his class! He won a.o. 1st Dourdan 614b., 1st Dourdan 213b., 1st Dourdan 101b., 41st Bourges 2,306., 17th Dourdan 848b., 14th Dourdan 425b., 24th Dourdan 555b., and so on…Every normal fancier would send this top pigeon after two successful season to their breeding loft, but not Benny. We write the year 2005 and ‘Chipo’ was there again 3rd Dourdan 217b., 7th Toury 427b., 5th Dourdan 194b., 9th Noyon 199b., and so on. In the meantime offspring of this top pigeon were to be found at the loft and seemed that his sons could win prizes of honour as well. More than once they made it home before their father and that’s why Benny finally decided to put him on the breeding loft. Coupled to B03-4328989 (a pure Michel Hautekiet- hen) they became the parents of many top pigeons who dominated the national pigeon sport the past few years !

“LUCKY 80” … 5th NATIONAL ACE BIRD KBDB GREATER MIDDLE DISTANCE OLD 2019
The national KBDB ace bird championships are known since a while now and also now we see the name Benny Steveninck at the top of the results. The pure proof that the Steveninck pigeons are born out of pure class.
This year it was hen “Lucky 80” who magically classified herself amongst the national KBDB ace pigeons.

ALSO THE YOUNGSTERS IMPRESS WITH 1ST AND 2ND PROVINCIAL CHATEAUROUX AGAINST 5,165 YOUNG BIRDS

On Saturday the 10th of August we had the 2nd national race for young pigeon scheduled. In East-Flanders there were 5,165 young pigeons basketed on provincial level and the Steveninck pigeons didn’t know where to leave their power and took the 1st and 2nd provincial spot onto their account. Also here we see the golden breeding line from ‘Chipo’ :
