Sunshine & 6 pups--March 07

[Sire Trueman]



Wednesday March 7th --Catterick Racecourse

This was the venue for a fundraising event in aid of the Hunt Staff Benefit Society.

As our Huntsman is currently on the management committee of the HSBS a small team from the Blencathra, including Barry, had a day at the races.

The weather was fine;there were 7 races on the card and there was a parade of hounds by the Bedale hunt (assisted by the Zetland hunt staff) between the 2nd & 3rd races.

We came back poorer having been to the HSBS 'Bottle Stall' & by not backing anywinners..... but we met many 'friends' & hunt staff from other hunts & had an enjoyable day out.
