The club would like to let everyone know that prior to the drawing of the two Field Champion classes that we will be auctioning off the hounds to create a little bit more interest in the event.
This may give someone other than the owner the chance to be cheering on a particular hound to a win or place. Each hound will be auctioned off with the highest bidder getting that hound and they would receive any of the win money from the auction should that hound place.
Each class will have the total amount taken in from the auction and broken out as follows: 25% goes to Lorain County Beagle Club and the other 75% will be divided: 40% - 1st place, 30% -2nd place, 20% - 3rd place, and 10% -4th place. This is a nice little fund raiser for the club and can make the lucky auction owner a very happy person and if it is the owner, then he or she is twice as happy.
Hope to see you at the trial,
Just in, Steve Redmon is replacing David Kerr, Jr. as one of the judges for this trial for the male class.
