IT looks like Sunday’s Sporting Clays Afternoon and Picnic hit the target for these happy participants. The group won the package at the 2010 Hound Welfare Fund benefit auction back in March, and their winning bid went straight to the Iroquois retired hounds. Thank you!
Thanks also to Tommy Dulin and Andre Pater for offering their good coaching services and to hosts Jerry and Susan Miller, who held the event on their farm. After several hours of shooting clay pigeons, the party moved creekside, where Susan Miller laid on a sumptuous spread at one of the prettiest spots in the hunt country, on the shaded banks of Boone Creek. The participants also will receive a DVD highlighting their shooting exploits.
The company was excellent, the conversation great, the food and wine delicious–and it all benefitted the hounds. Thanks again to everyone for making the day such fun!
Here are a few highlights from the day, first in video and then in some photos. If you missed out of the Sporting Clays afternoon this year, keep your eyes open for the 2011 HWF benefit auction program and come back to bid again!
