Message from the Executive Committee to all HTA members.
In the light of recent incidents, the Executive Committee has decided to bring to the attention of all HTA members Rule 30 (c) of the Powers of the Area Committees; “to enquire into and determine any complaints arising out of matters occurring in the area of that Area Committee of fraudulent, discreditable or mischievous conduct which, in its own opinion, may be calculated to injure the Association or to be prejudicial to the sport of hound trailing or which may, in its opinion, be a breach of any of the rules of the Association.”
IMPORTANT NOTICE: By order of Natural England, no practice trails are to be run on Bowness Moss (Cardurnock) or Wedholme Moss (Grassings) without permission from Andy Horn or Brian Shaw (BHTA).
This is a clause requested by Natural
Margaret is still trying to locate a silver challenge cup which went missing a few years ago. It was given during the past 5 –15 years or so for one of the trails at the October HTA meeting (not the Senior trail), and among the engraving were the words “won by Sister Susan”. Please look in your cupboards and on your shelves, as it would be good to have this trophy in circulation again. No questions asked!!
Keswick Area Presentation – Saturday 29th February, Rosthwaite Village Hall, following trial trails at 11.00 am. If you would like to order the buffet lunch, please contact Carole Jackson on 017687 77677.
