2019 Lone Star HRC Hunt Test a Solid Success
The 33rd Annual Lone Star HRC Hunt Test was one of the most successful events in club history. Held March 23 and 24 at Edwards Retriever Training facility in Bonham, TX, over 200 dogs entered at Started, Seasoned and Finished levels. Members, amateurs, along with their families as well as pros from several states entered their dogs for a chance to capture points and the coveted ribbon.
Once again, a Saturday night complimentary banquet featured the great food from Chef William Goodnight and live entertainment by Whiskey Holler, followed by a raffle to go along with the ribbon ceremonies.
