Swatara Field Champion Trial
May 01, 2019 - Swatara Beagle Club, Elizabethtown, PA

Results provided by Field Trial Secretary, Don Kraly.

Swatara opened with 15 Males under Judges Dave Kerr and Randy McClellan and 23 Females under Judges Ken Backus and Jessie Foster.  We thank them for their time and evaluations.

\Weather was good, it didn't rain at Swatara. Actually the grounds were drier this year than in many of the past years, even though we had plenty of rain in this part of PA. The grounds were in good shape. Rabbits were more than adequate with limited brush beaters.

We thank Purina for feeding the trial and Mike Luchetta is here representing them.

We thank Bob Hartman for doing the kitchen for breakfast and lunch.

We miss Jerry Nessinger not being with us.  His wife Sue came Thursday with desserts and the both of them are in our thoughts and prayers.  We were sorry to hear about Sonny Price having an aneurysm and wish him a full and speedy recovery.

We thank our marshals, brush beaters, path watchers and cart drivers for getting the hounds to the field.
