10th Blaston Hound Show: Leicestershire - Sunday 26th June 2011

The 500 mile round trip with hounds leaving the kennels at 4.30am proved very well worthwhile.
The further south hounds travelled the warmer it became ending up the hottest day of the year so far.
The show was very well organised with classes for Old English packs being added for the first time.
Fortunately the Old English packs showed in the morning before the temperature reached roasting point.
Lunch was provided by the two cars of Percy Supporters who also made the trip and hounds started the long journey home straight after lunch due to the heat.

Seven packs of Old English hounds were present and judging began at 11am, the judges were Mr J Lang (Burton 1967 - 2008) and Mr A Wilson (Morpeth).
