2016 Highlights

Highlights of the year

1 |    Hounds went out 177 times during the 2017-2018 season, and had only 3 cancelled meets due to inclement weather (extreme cold or ice).

 

2 |   One litter of four whelped in 2017, the B litter, by NT Voodoo and NT Ursula. Two other litters in 2018 gave us Cerces and Captain, and Deva, Dorsey and Dauntless.

 

3 |   N-T B continued the Adopt a Highway program, and gathered a whopping 95+ bags of trash on Westwood Road throughout the year. 

4 |   The summer party had the highest attendance of several years and dinner by Love at First Bite was scrumptious. Local Artist Gail Maslyk talked about  sketching horses and scenery.

5 |   In April, staff and several juniors paraded the hounds for the crowd at the Blue Ridge Hunt Point to Point.

6 |    Once again, the annual fundraiser and dinner at the Millwood Club was a pleasant evening and generated funds to cover the season. 

7 |    The 1940s tradition  of the Beagle Games were revived. Members, subscribers, and friends gathered for foot races, a scavenger hunt, candy hunt, wine and beer hunts as well as horn-blowing and whip-cracking contests.

8 |   The Huntsman’s Diary of the 2017-2018 season was prepared as a gift to subscribers and supporters. For its cover, Ms. Lynden Willingham sketched a wonderful hunting scene in pen and ink, graphite and gouache.

9 |  In addition to weekly summer walk-outs (often with muffins and mimosas!), daily hunts continued through the year. Russ welcomed members to join him for the exercise and to learn about the hounds.

10 |  As in previous years, N-T B supported the Berryville Main Street holiday campaign; participated in both spring and fall trials at Aldie, maintained the N-T B cabin there, and supported the National Beagle Club work weekend.
