    These events are a lot of fun and a great way to support the clubs.....no papers needed!..... Great place to socialize young hounds and blow the dust off the older hounds while seeing alot of great folks all at the same time....hope to see everyone there.......

    Yes Wildman, it is a scent drag and it is a group of 4-6 hounds at times depending on how many dogs we have. the water race is the same. Trophies for first line and tree on field trial and first line and tree for water race and first place for dog who barks the most at the treeing contest. The distance varies but i know ours is quite long,Clay knows exact distance but it is more than a few hundred yards and less than a mile haha. and the water race is about200 feet I think. Come on out and join the fun!
