News from Berkelland » Children Eibergen and Beltrum can skate

By the editors on 02-12-2022

EIBERGEN/BELTRUM – Monday 28 November was the last lesson in the Piet de Wit Skating Project 2022 for the children from Eibergen and Beltrum.

Every year the Sports Association Berkelland (SFB) and Eibergse IJsvereniging take the registered children from groups 7 and 8 by bus to IJsbaan Twente in Enschede. “This year we again had help from coaches from the Haaksberg ice club IJSCH and from sports and exercise students from Graafschap College, which we were very happy about. All 60 children finally received their skating skills certificates at the end of the 4th. and last lesson. It’s always nice to see how much fun the kids have on the ice and how quickly they learn to skate. Now we hope for natural ice cream, so that the children in Eibergen and Beltrum can show their parents what they have learned. Our thanks go to the volunteer coaches, Het Graafschap College, transporter Hartemink and our sponsors: Welkoop Eibergen, Plus Koenders, Amazing Facility Services, Profile Eibergen Vermeulen, Bouwbedrijf Penterman and Profile Bicycle specialist Bleumink. We will definitely go again next year!”. Says John Willemsen from SFB.

Borculo and the Geesteren in the character of traditional draft hunting

BORCULO/GEESTEREN – The Royal Dutch Hunting Association (KNJV) and Hamelandse Ruiter’s annual slide hunt in Borculo and Geesteren took place on Saturday for the 47th time. Amazone Floor van Roon has traveled with more than a hundred yachts throughout the country and, like other participants and many visitors, likes to come to the Achterhoek to get the slip yacht.

“It’s super nice to drive in this region, in this region,” says Van Roon. “People are very friendly here, and as far as I know, they also like us to be here. So it is definitely an environment we like to come to.” That participants like coming to Berkelland is evident from figures from KNJV. “If you look at the approximately fifty yachts they organize each year, we are in the top five in terms of participants. It shows that they like coming here,’ says Jan Markink from Hamelandse Ruiters. Visitors also know where to find the drag yacht: “We can always count on great interest. We always advertise it and then a lot of people come to see it.”

During the trail hunt, the forty participants do not hunt for prey, but follow an artificial fox trail through the landscape. “With a trail hunt, we draw a trail that smells of foxes, and then a pack of dogs follows the trail,” describes Van Roon. “Then there are three riders who lead the dogs, and we as riders go after them with the horses.” The riders then ride through the versatile nature of Borculo and Geesteren. “It’s about the meadows, the farmland and through the forest,” says Markink. “But also through, for example, ditches, that’s the beauty of it.”

Valuable tradition
For the Amazons, tradition is very valuable. “I especially like that you do it together with a large group of often the same people,” says rider Mathilde de Rooij, who often rides on a slip yacht with her parents. “And there’s no competitive element to it, which makes it enjoyable.” Van Roon joins a yacht twice a week: “Then you get to nice places in the Netherlands and beautiful pieces of nature where you wouldn’t get to otherwise.”

Keep the tradition alive
Markink also hopes that the tradition, which has existed in Borculo and Geesteren for almost fifty years, will continue for a long time to come. “It’s a tradition that needs to be kept alive,” says the organizer. “In the beginning you see so-called sonneurs who start the hunt and at the end of the hunt they blow it off again.”
