Jan Grootoonk – Bant

 

Jan Grootoonk is one of the big champs on the marathon flights! Jan Grootoonk has pigeons since the sixties and together with his brother they basketted their pigeons on a bike as they had no drivers license as teenagers. But it was a great time, like many of us will remember. Since 1979 Jan lives in Bant with his wife and 2 children, of whom his son Yoel races with pigeons too, together with his dad. Before the turn of the century Jan had allround/program pigeons and was amongst the champions always! He remembers that he once had the 1st National Ace pigeon Middle distance Vredesduif Competition and 2nd National Ace pigeon Middle distance NPO/WHZB. Since Jan decided to start participating on the marathon flights only (somehere around the year 2002), he went to Noord-Holland to buy his first extreme long distance birds. The strain of Nico Volkens (direct and via Terpstra-Koper) is the foundation of his current breedingloft. He crossed the Volkens (Sam de Jong/Bonte Koppel) pigeons with pigeons from Ad Pegels and his successtory was about to begin!

 

Jan Grootoonk’s most memorable championships from that time were:

1st Cat. 5 Nat. Fondspiegel 2009 !

2nd Cat. 5 Nat. Fondspiegel 2010 !

Jan is always looking for pigeons to cross with his Volkens based breeders and over the years he introduced pigeons from Jelle Jellema (direct and via KC Friesland & van der Veer), Arjan Beens (direct and via Appie Pas & Henri Hoeks), Gebr. Limburg and Kramer-Ouwehand. Looking at the amazing results in the overview below, one can say that his search for the best pigeons only was very succesful.

Without any doubt, Jan Grootoonk is one of the big names in the Dutch marathon pigeonsports. He built an own strain of pigeons by crossing his Nico Volkens/Sam de Jong stock pigeons with the modern Jellema/Beens pigeons and became very succesful by doing so, as the undermentioned 2019 results show:

1 NPO Bergerac

1 NPO Cahors

4 NPO Bergerac

6 NPO Periqueux

7 NPO Periqueux

8 NPO Dax

 

In his auction on Pigeoncom, Jan Grootoonk offers a select group of 15 youngsters from his best breeders, including Nygel, Marnix and Aimay and from his best racers, including Marianne – 1st National Bergerac!

 

Note: Sex of the birds is believed to be correct by Jan & Yoel Grootoonk, but is not 100% guaranteed.
