RUURLO – On the morning of Saturday, December 3rd, the klootschieters from Holland were ready early for the first Championstour competition day, part street. With temperatures around freezing and strong winds, not the best conditions for high performance.
The site was the Geesterenseveldweg in Geesteren (Ov). During two rounds of 1000 metres, it is decided who is the best and goes home with the best result. The stake is a place in the starting squad that will qualify it for the 2024 European Championships in Neuharlingersiel (Germany) at the right time. The top 10 men, 6 women, 4 boys and 3 girls will be delegated on behalf of the Dutch Klootschietersbond (NKB).
The first 3 competition days showed mixed results for the klootschieters from our area. In addition to Patrick, among the men are two klootschieters from Achterhoek. Jurgen te Brake and Ramon Halleriet, both from KV Zwolle (Groenlo). In the first round things went well with ninth place (8 shots 30m) for Ramon, second place (7 shots 75m) for Jurgen and first place (7 shots 126m) for Patrick. The second round was even lower for the Achterhoekers. Jurgen was 20th (10 shots 118m) and Ramon 15th (9 shots 21m) disappointing. The exception was Patrick who was again third with 7 shots, but now with 32 metres. In the intermediate rating, Patrick leads by 28 points.
Besides Suzanne, no women from Achterhoek have qualified as finalists. Suzanne was doing well. In the first round she had 9 shots 77 meters which was good for second place. The second round went a little lower, but with 10 shots and 70 meters I was able to get third place. In the intermediate rating, Suzanne is tied for second behind European champion Silk Talk, who netted both rounds with 8 shots.
Unfortunately, there are no representatives from Achterhoek for either boys or girls. The second competition day will take place on December 17, 2022 in Lochem (at KV Klein Dochteren).

Borculo and Geesteren in the traditional hunting mark
PORKOLO/JESTREN – The annual slide fishing of the Royal Dutch Hunting Society (KNJV) and Hamlandsee Reuters in Borkolo and Jestern took place for the 47th time on Saturday. Amazone Floor van Roon has traveled with over a hundred yachts around the country and, like other participants and many visitors, loves coming to Achterhoek for the yacht slip.
“It’s very cool to drive in this area, in this area,” says Van Roon. “The people here are very friendly, and as far as I know, they also love that we’re here. So this is definitely an environment we’d love to come to.” The willingness of the participants to come to Berkelland is evidenced by personalities from the KNJV. “If you look at the nearly fifty yachts that they organize each year, we are among the top five in terms of the number of participants. This suggests that they like to come here,” says Jan Markink of Hamelandse Ruiters. Visitors also know where to find a tow yacht: “We can always count on a lot of interest. We always advertise it and then a lot of people come to see it.”
During a drag chase, the 40 participants do not catch prey, but follow the path of an artificial fox through the landscape. “Chasing the clouds, we draw a trail that smells like a fox and then a pack of dogs follows,” describes Van Roon. “Then there are three riders who guide the dogs and we as riders chase them with horses.” The riders then ride through the varied nature of Borculo and Geesteren. “This is about meadows, farmland, and through forests,” Markink says. “But also through trenches, for example, that’s the beauty of it.”
A valuable tradition
For the Amazons, imitation is very valuable. “I especially like that you do it with a large group of often the same people,” says racer Mathilde de Roij, who often drives a yacht with her parents. “And there is an element of competition in it, which makes it fun.” Van Roon joins a yacht twice a week: “Then you come to beautiful places in Holland and beautiful pieces of nature that you wouldn’t have come to otherwise.”
Keep the traditions alive
Markink also hopes that the tradition, which has existed in Borcolo and Jestern for nearly fifty years, will continue for a long time to come. “It is a tradition that must be kept alive,” says the organizer. “In the beginning you see the so-called Sonneurs, who start the chase and at the end of the chase they blow it off again.”
