ASHBURTON COUINTY HUNT CLUB
Tile Hounds met at Mr Max Friedlanaer's, Lyndhurat, on Thursday, 27th June, Owing to the very wet morning only a small party assembled at the advertised time, but later on m the afternoon, as the rain held off, a dozen , or so more arrived. The ground was very heavy, but the scent, however, held remark- ■ ably well. Three good ranß were obtained; the first two hareß were each lost m the I plantations, the third, however, took a better course towards Mr D. Brick's property and was killed m the open after a most enjoyable spin of twenty-five minute's. This oonoluded the afternoon's sport. After full justice had been done to the good things so kindly pro* vided by Mr and Mrs Max Friedlander the party dispersed for home,- apparently muoh pleased with tho day's outing. On Wednesday, 3rd July, the hounds met for (he seoond time this season at Mr M. Stitt's, Winohmore. The strong nor-wester which had been blowing during the morning J went down and gave promise of a good afternoon's sport. As üßual a very large number of personß, consisting of between 40 and 50 equestrians and a number of vehicles, chiefly containing the fair sex, turned out and partook of the hospitality always extended to visitors at Winohmore. In the seoond paddook beaten puss was found and went away at a fast paoe, taking a winding course most of the time over the few paddooks m front of the house, which gave the large field plenty of jumping before puss was killed near Mr M, Booney's houße after a run of 38 minutes with only one or two obeoks, the hounds working very true throughout* Messrs Capon Broß. property was next tried, but was full of hares, and as it was found impossible to keep ths pack from ohanging, they were whipped off rather earlier than usual and were taken baok to Winohmore, where, after again partaking of refreshments, three hearty cheers were given for Mr Stitt before dispersing for home The first run was one of the best obtained this season and should do a good deal towards increasing the membership of the olub and the number of dirty coats shewed that more than one had greeted mother earth though fortunately without any serious consequences.
