I would just like to make a few comments about the hunt. First I want to thank all the judges for their hard work on getting on the hounds. Ya'll did an outstanding job. Also I want to thank Bub, Ben, and Wes for having the pen in outstanding shape. The running was absolutely as good as it gets.
Then there's the South Carolina crowd!! Thank you guys and gals for all you do to help make this hunt such a success. There is an intense rivalry between the Georgia and SC hunters. I think this year Ga got the best end of the deal. But it's about time, ya'll been handing it to us pretty regular the past few years. This is a rivalry, no doubt, but a great, friendly, rivalry. Everyone helps each other,and we really act like one big family. Thats a good thing, and a testament to what true sportsmanship is all about. And how about old Sand Man. And I do mean old! Sand Man was first in hunting, 3rd in trailing, 2nd HGA, and put up 300 sd on the last day. Not bad for a 10 year old hound.
And then there was Anthony Cone( Amped Up Kennels ) winning the whole thing. Anthony is new to our sport, but his name will now be etched in Ogeechee River History. Congrats again on a great win, with a really nice hound.
Thanks again to all who had a part in putting on another great GEECHEE RIVER hunt. We look forward to seeing you all next year.
