2018 Results of Southern Michigan Hall of Fame and National Qualifying Trial
What a great time we had at our trial. We could have not asked for better weather, dogs and judges. We had beaglers, judges, friends and family come from West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee and Michigan. We appreciated the support of everyone that came out, as this is always a fun trial.
Friday we welcomed the incoming guests with New York Strip Steak supper, salad and baked potatoes. Before and after the beaglers took to the field to run or watch some dogs.
The Michigan weather was in low 70’s on Saturday partially sunny with no rain. The entries closed at 8:00 with 34 starters running only one class; we were up two dogs from last year.We want to thank our Judges Bob Kimber and Tom Belcher for the outstanding job they did! Thanks to the field marshals L.A. Williams and Rob Dillon at keeping the trial moving with the assisting gallery. The trial stopped at 12:30 for lunch and took to the field afterwards to finish first series, coming in for a break before second series. We had plenty of rabbits, and they came quickly for each brace.
