report from Joy Crompton, results courtesy Sherry Buttrick and Julie Cook:
"Kudos are warranted to all who helped to make our Puppy Show a success! To start - Kenny Chapman and his crew, along with a lot of help from Matthew and Tommy, for sprucing-up the Kennels with new paint! Julie Cook and Carolyn Chapman helping to get hounds to the show ring.
Having the Farmington Beagles join us made the evening that much more fun! The little hounds and little people showing them were very entertaining! Of course, Pimms are always a hit! Thanks to Forbes and Sherry for providing and, additionally, for working with us to join forces!
Of course, no Farmington Hunt event can be without a wonderful "tailgate" following. Thanks to new Social Committee Chairwoman, Stacy Stinchfield for organizing a terrific supper at The Club House and to all who contributed!"
Thorn and Pistol placed 1st and 3rd in the dog hound class
Overall champion: Pansy.
