    I looked into it a year or so ago to support other clubs and didn't have any luck. Hollaback may know, or Bones. Mt Abram Coonhunters and Albion may not be close but speaking for Mt Abram we welcome new folks and Albion club does as well. Sorry couldn't be more help.

    Don't know their status either......As far as I know Downeast houndsmen assn., Albion Coon,cat & Bear hunters Assn., and Mt Abrahams coonhunters Assn.....are the 3 active coon clubs that host events....UKC could tell you more if you contact them.....They will put you in touch with the last know people listed on file....and any contact info....Might be something some folks from that area can get involved in and get it back on its feet somehow....Last I heard they were functioning out of Rock o' Dundee snowmobile club in Oxford?????

    I remember when they had big turn-outs for the events and drew a lot of folks from all over....too bad to see it go down.....I know they was have'n a hard time to get a bench judge at their events but nobody ever wanted to apprentice and get it for the club.....Its a shame because they have a good spot to hold events with plenty of folks to go if it was turned around and run properly.....Hopefully a few will get together and rebuild it up......
