First part Team de Hoogh:
The start from Dries de Hoogh and son was easy: get pigeons from most of the family members. When this was done they were really quick at the top of the Netherlands. The general championship of our province was won immediately in 1988 just 5 years after the start with youngsters. Over the years we won 11 times the 1st provincial championship. Our 1st and 2nd National Cahors was also a big highlight in our career.
Were playing with 40 widowcocks and since 2023 with 24 widowhens. We start every year with about 100 youngsters. The emphasis is on the middle distance (300-500km) and long distance (500-700km). The feed we give to the pigeons is from Ronny van Tilburg and for the medical part we rely on Jan van Wanrooij of Belgica de Weerd.
