MFHA – Annual Meeting in New York, January 25, 26 2018

Sue Levy, MFH, and Marilyn Mariano, MFH attended the annual meeting of the MFHA (Master’s of Foxhounds Association) in New York.  Marilyn participated in a New Master’s Luncheon and seminar.  A roundtable discussion was led by Tony Leahy, MFH, President of the MFHA.  It was great to exchange ideas and information with other MFHs.  Thursday night was the Master’s dinner, held at the Union Club.  There were so many opportunities to meet MFHs from hunts all across the country.  Very interesting to compare similarities, and learn about how different hunts manage different territories and traditions.  (the food and drink was amazing too!)  Friday was spent in the annual meeting, hearing presentations from the MFHA.  We learned more about what the MFHA does to continue the sport of Fox Hunting in the U.S. and the importance of member hunts participation.  Friday night’s Hunt Ball was a spectacle not to be missed.  Approximately 500 attendees at the Pierre Hotel ballroom.  The food and drink were, again, amazing.  The Band played all night, and the dance floor never cleared.  Those fox hunters are a bunch of fun and slightly crazy people!  So much fun.

Hark Forward –  Aiken Hounds Performance Trials

Congratulations to the Aiken Hounds for taking the top spot for packs at the Aiken Hounds Performance Trials held in Belle Meade territory in Georgia. Wentworth was unable to get our hounds out of the deep freeze in New Hampshire to provide some worthy competition, but a few of our members (Daun DeFrance, MFH, Sue Levy, MFH, Ann Wicander, and Linda Fernald) made the trek and had a phenomenal time. Our hosts were gracious, the territory was gorgeous and the hunting was fantastic. 

Pencil in December 6 & 7, 2018. We will be back and we’re bringing our pack next time!!!

Results here.

De la Brooke Joint Meet

A small contingency of Wentworth Hunt members participated in a joint meet with the De la Brooke Foxhounds in Southern Maryland on December 16.  Making the trip were Daun DeFrance, MFH and our Huntsman Rachel Duffy.  It was great fun to ride with this historic hunt and to see the beautiful Maryland hunt country.  It was also good to see our ex-Master and Huntsman Kami Wolk enjoying her new role there.
