Catawba County Beagle Club hosted the 2019 Carolinas Championship on September 27 & 28. Weather was warm and dry but high quality runs were experienced each day.
Catawba had it's grounds in great shape and rabbits came well.
Notes of thanks to our judges Davey Kerr and Jim Halley who gave the hounds ample opportunity to display their merit with second series runs resulting in high class winners.
PURINA fed the hounds.
Ernest Williams handled the kitchen and one day of driving the rabbit shagger with Ben Smith driving the second day.
Secretary John Hill handled the administration of the Championship suberbly and VP Dwight Miller was always on the spot to keep the machine running smoothly. Thanks to all who spotted rabbits, transported hounds and owners to the field and made our trial a success.
Field Champion Sunshine Lonesome Sam owned by President George Hebert was the most consistent hound during the running of our Qualifying Trials with Field Champions Bell Road Patience owned by Paul Smith and Carver's Bay Double D owned by Carl Smith following closely in second and third.
Of special note, the male class winner, Field Champion Amity Hill Lawmaker was also the winner of the the Pennsylvania Championship. Congratulations owner Jennings Ford.
Thanks to Lynette Cool for posting the pictures.
