Submitted by George Hebert
Mecklenburg opened their trial with a combined class of 11 males under the judgement of Jennings Ford and Wayne Plemmons.
Weather was beautiful after experiencing heavy rains earlier in the week. Catawba County had the grounds in great shape and rabbits were in abundance so that the first day's running was completed by 11:30.
Second day of running saw 15 little bitches go to the field under the judgement of Ben Smith and Ernest Williams Jr. Skys were Carolina blue with mild temperatures rabbits came easy and the class was completed before noon.
Final day was more beautiful weather with 14 big females going to the field under Bill Laney and Don Phillips.
Kitchen duties we're handled by Ernest Williams assisted by George Hebert. PURINA fed the hounds.
Ernest Williams drove the rabbit shagger, Jennings Ford, Wayne Plemmons and George Hebert served as Field Marshalls. Thanks to all who transported hounds, handled hounds for those who could not attend, watched paths, etc.
Next trial will be the Cherryville-Pee Dee River double header at Indian June 19-21.
