Message from John Bromage: Thanks to all promoters – the insurance and levy payments for the past season are all in – there have been 136 trail meetings. I will be at all the Area AGMs, and will be taking puppy registrations, which are due in by 31st December – forms from myself (John) or Phil. Also due are subs and kennel fees for 2018 - Subscriptions – juniors under 18   £5,    adults 18 – 64   £20,     65 and over   £15.    All new members – 50p extra.      Kennel insurance - £10.

Please pay John Bromage (details above) enclosing money or cheques in an envelope with your details written on it.   Cheques should be made payable to HTA Ltd.

 

If you are using any bitch for breeding, please ask Phil for a certificate and return it to him, so that the HTA has a record of what litters are expected.

 

Message from the Secretary – 60 of the 123 puppies which were earmarked have now been registered.

 

AREA AGMs7.15 pm. (Area Chairmen – please let Phil know asap if any of these is inconvenient)

Aspatria/Wigton; Wed 22nd Nov – Wigton Rugby Club. (Please note change of date)

 

If any hound trailers are considering sending their retired hounds in for rehoming this year, please remember that some of the homing centres we work with, close their doors to new intakes in early December as the Christmas period is quite hectic and not the best time for a new family to adopt a pet, so if you are planning to send a hound to us, please get in touch asap. Feel free to speak to Barbara Leopold or ring Sue on 01697 478383. Thank you.

 

Notice to members – the Executive Committee has amended Rule 54.6 to include the words “and shows that include hounds from local packs” after “agricultural and horticultural shows” (i.e. all these shows may charge full admission, but entries shall be free, with no charge for cars containing running hounds.)
