Time limit to find the fox is 2 hours. We wIll meet back at the club for results afterwards. Coffee and tea will be available courtesy of Tony TK, and Ice cold refreshments at club prices will be available at the club house after the hunt.
Could all those interested in attending let me (Peter) know. Further details will be provided once it is confirmed who will attend. We have a foxhunt Whatsapp group which Peter can add you to.
This is an excellent opportunity for anyone new to fox hunting to learn the equipment and the techniques; remember you can pair up and share a car. Or work solo, up to you.
