It was a VERY hot day, and everyone had a great time! Congratulations to all Teams. Great turnout and participation – 43 hounds and 2 foxes.

Congratulations to W4GO and his family on being the winner!

We went to Messick’s Farm Market for after-the-hunt socializing and telling of tall tales. We invite anyone interested in foxhunting, especially anyone who has not done it before, to join us. Those new to the hobby can ride with an experienced hunter. We always have a good time, win, lose or draw.
