2009 JHB Prize Giving

This past weekend we had the prize giving for the 2009 season in JHB. The event was at the JHB Country Club in Woodmead.

As soon as all the results are mailed to me, we’ll update the site – but in the mean time… here are some pics from the evening.

Usually, when we see each other at the hunts, it’s at 8am on a cold, wintery Sunday morning. We are all more often than not tired/hungover/flu-ish and dressed in our oldest, dodgiest jeans, beanies, caps and jackets. Oh, and covered in beagle hair and dirty paw prints!!

So, to be all dressed up, and not dragged around by a beagle is a different experience for us!

We all clean up pretty well, don’t you think??!?

PS Thanks to Sarah for the photos! 🙂 – you really seemed to capture the festive mood and happy atmosphere

The table all beautifully set 🙂

    Thank you to every one the past years hunts was awsome and next season I’ll be bringing some of Onderstepoorts beagles with a lot of students and please you guys come and visit me with the Otau beagles at Onderstepoort come and see 24 happy beagles running around in a big grass camp and enjoying the fresh air.

  5. […] The fees for the 2010 season are R180 per family (regardless of the number of beagles you have)… this money goes towards buying the bait we use to scent the hounds, as well as towards the social events we have throughout the season, and it also goes towards the venue hire for the end of year function – which is a very glamorous prize giving, and well worth attending!! See pics etc from last years function HERE […]

  6. […] up to the nines to spend a fun evening honouring our hounds! (see our site for the last 2 events: 2009 and 2010 […]
