* OPENING RUN. The inaugural meeting- /of the above club was held on Wednesday and Thursday last, and proved a brilliant success. The attendance was a record one, and a number of ladies were present. The Club are to be complimented on the way in which they managed the affair, and although there were some who were loud in their complaints; —■ first about one thing and then about another —they are not taken seriously for the meeting was most successfully managed. Although there were not enough hares to finish the course this matter will be easily remedied in the future, especially when the club have their own stock of hares to draw on.
During the afternoon the cash fielders were in evidence, and did good business. The members, worked hard, and the various beats were got otf promptly. A word of praise is due to the judge, who was very quick in giving his decisions. 'The slipper had a difficult task, owing to several or she dogs being unused to slinzingFor the next meeting a number of minor defects will be remedied.
