Brushy Mountain opened the first of a three day licensed trial with a combined class of 13 males under the judgement of John Kiser and Buddy Clark. Rabbits came real good and six hounds were called back for second series which saw no changes and the trial was over before noon.
The second day of running saw an entry of 25 little females under the judgement of Jennings Ford and Ben Smith. The weather was beautiful, rabbits came quickly, but the running was tough. Six hounds were called back, two of which were defeated. Second series saw minor shuffling with one brace called for third series concluding the trial.
Final day drew 18 big females that went to the field under windy conditions, Don Phillips and Gene Chapman judging. Six hounds were called back. The high brace could not hold its position and the 2d and 3d braces were moved up to end the trial.
Notes of thanks go to the following:
Catawba County Beagle Club for allowing us to use their facilities which were in top condition.
Junior Williams for handling the kitchen and driving the rabbit shagger.
Pete Proctor and PURINA for feeding the hounds.
Our Judges who gave each hound ample opportunity to display their talents.
All who ran hounds, watched paths, drove carts, beat brush and contributed to the success of the event.
Overall a very successful trial due to all in attendance pulling together to insure its successful completion.
Next event the Derby Classic on November 25th. Hope to see you there!!
