    It turned out to be an awesome event!!! A big thank you to all who participated and joined the association! Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves even with the scorching temperatures that we had! It was so nice to see a big turnout for our first event. Bill, you forgot to THANK yourself for all that you did! You got the ball rolling and set everything up!! Without you this wouldn't have happened! So a big THANK-YOU to YOU from the MSDA!~ Congratulations to the Winners~

    I want to thank Bill and Marie for all the hard work you guys have done and are still doing to make things happen! I came up to the event all the way from Gray it was a 5 hour ride but was very happy I attended! I want to thank my buddy pat and Jon "trailterra" for comming up and supporting this sport that we all "love"! I heard from a lot of guys the reason why they didnt go was because they can do the same thing in their yard with their hounds.. but so could everyone who entered their 30 hounds but to me its all about supporting the sport that we love and it going to a good cause comming together having a goodtime and meeting new folks! I was VERY impressed with the layout of the course and water race you guys have a beautiful spot up there Bill and I want to thank everyone who was there to make it such a wonderful day! I wish all houndsmen were just like ya Bill if they were I really think we would have a lot more people joining this sport and sticking with it you are always willing to give your best advice and help with whatever you can and thats what we need to keep the sport alive numbers are everything! Hope to see everyone that attended and more next event!
