Closing Meet at Butterfield
We couldn't have asked for better weather for closing.
There was a great group of people out and one of the land owners
was nice enough to accompany us for the hunt.
There were a number of blistering runs where we were close
enough to hear the hounds music echoing in the woods.
Half way through, the tally ho wagon was much appreciated, as
we were all parched from the exertion.
After our ride, we had a wonderful breakfast provided by
various members. They outdid themselves in quality and selection.
Sad to see the season over, but what an ending....
