CTARC: FoxHunt: This Saturday, 10 December

All fox hunters and interested members are invited to attend our club’s foxhunt this coming Saturday 10th December. Please be at the clubhouse at 11:45 for the briefing by Peter ZS1PC.

The fox will be switched on at 12:00.

Time limit to find the fox is 2 hours. Meet back at the club for results afterwards. 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.
