    Sat 5/7/22 Carolinas’ 44th Annual Hound Show

    The Salute the Hounds dinner on the Friday night was during a thunderstorm and power outage, but the crowd remained in party mode!

    PAH Huntsman, Martyn Blackmore, beat out 8 other huntsmen to win the Horn Blowing competition.

    During the show Saturday, Dynamo was placed 4th in Unentered Dog, which was not bad for a 9 month old puppy, whose immaturity showed, although he moved very well.

    Wallace won Stallion Hound

    Magnet was crowned Champion English Dog

    The bitches swept the board with Mischief winning Unentered Bitch

    And not forgetting Sparky for taking Jack to Southern Pines to retrieve the hunt truck!
