JHB: Beagle Ball & Prizegiving – 2011

Hi Everyone…!



You have all heard us mention the Beagle Ball – our year end function. This is the end of season function where we all (humans) dress up in formal attire, have a fun evening, a wonderful dinner combined with a prize giving where we find out after a gruelling season where our dogs were placed and honour them.  For those who haven’t been to a Beagle Ball yet, click HERE to see some pics from our Ball last year, 2010, and click HERE to see pics from 2009!


We have once again had a year with a lot of new talent coming through, a few beagles who may upstage some of the veteran/seasoned beagles and we look forward to finding all this out. Who will be top bitch/dog, who will be our best newcomer, most improved, best puppy & so the list goes on.


Each beagle who has attended more than four hunts in a season will be awarded a certificate – but please note that these certificates are ONLY awarded IF you are at the ball!


As all of you may notice we do not give any indication during the season of where the dogs are placed which all adds up to the intrigue of the final results. You only get an idea of how the dogs are doing at each hunt by the scores that are called out. The Top Ten Hunt is the first time you will get an idea of top highest scoring beagles but that is just a small part of the whole season.  (See the Top Ten of 2010 HERE and the Top Ten of 2009 HERE)


The 2011 Beagle Ball & Prize giving will be held at BILLY G’s inside Monte Casino, in Fourways, on Saturday 15 October 2011 at about 18:00 (final time to be confirmed). The cost is  R200.00 per head. The deadline for payments will be

Sunday 14 August (hunt and breakfast). We need to get final numbers for catering etc. So, please get your money to Jane asap! Please bring your money on the 14th of August, or if you are not able to make the hunt on the 14th, but would like to come to the Prize Giving, please email me and I will send you Jane’s banking details.



This is a great evening and we look forward to a great turnout this year, and a whole new crowd!


** For those of you with trophies from last year please ensure that you have had them engraved and cleaned and returned to Jane  by the top ten (24 September) at the latest!
