We couldn’t find enough superlatives after the amazing season in 2018 where they destroyed every single competitor on almost all the different categories that is being raced at the Eijerkamp family. Nestor Hans Eijerkamp (84) who has placed almost 70 years ago his first steps within pigeons sport is still enjoying daily all the joy that pigeon sport brings him. Due to some physical limitations he can’t unfortunately practice pigeon sport anymore but the daily business is being talked through with his son Evert-Jan (57) who was infected with the pigeon germ since a very young age. Evert-Jan might even be more fanatic than his father ever was and despite the busy occupations he has running the 2 big stores in Zutphen and Veenendaal, with more than 300 people working there, his hart and passion is with the pigeons. The ideal way for me to relax from my day-to-day business according Evert-Jan. Hans and Evert-Jan are being supported by a team of specialists and they have been racing for years in Brummen under 2 different names, Hans and Evert-Jan Eijerkamp as well as Lotte Eijerkamp. Both lofts enter all the races that the program offers with exception of the marathon races. Specialization in optima forma where the level is set high as both Hans and Evert-Jan are born winners who want to be on both their business side as sportive side the best in what they do.

Season 2018
To have a brief look back what the season of 2018 brought with no less than 23 victories in big competition without doubles inclusive 4 NPO-victories. Unseen where the young birds where they managed to win on two different NPO races places 1 to 14 and places 1 to 11. With ‘Luka Modric’ they had a true ‘white raven’ on their loft as this super pigeon won 4x 1st National Ace bird in 4 different competitions with the young birds. With the eye on the future this top pigeon got a place on the breeding loft. Next to these they also won several Top 10 places on a national level with individual pigeon championships. Also very honoured were Hans and Evert-Jan by winning the title of National ‘Gouden Duif’ winner on the short distance races.

And Hans Eijerkamp, keeping pigeons keeps him young and active, despite the fact that he will have a hip surgery soon he stays on top of everything that happens within pigeon world as he is sometimes very active via WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram and the internet and follows everything in matter of his biggest passion, the pigeons.
