The PKC Staff Members have all finally made it back to their respective homes. It usually takes us a few days to recuperate from a week of 15-17 hour work days, but the drive home is usually a reflective one. We think back on all those that step-up and help throughout the week and what we can do to make the future events even better for PKC Members.

The 2017 Spring Super Stakes Championships held last week in Sullivan, Indiana was another outstanding test of top young hounds and great handlers. The Sullivan County CHA, along with the clubs of Greencastle, Washington and Robinson did their normal outstanding job of providing quality guides, competent judges and a warm, welcoming atmosphere.

This host club and satellite locations are among the best I have worked with for getting it all done in a no nonsense kinda’ way. The guides from these clubs put 335 casts in the woods Monday-Saturday. These hard working guys and gals are the main reason everyone looks forward to coming back to Sullivan, Indiana every year in early April!

The PKC membership showed outstanding sportsmanship, even when lots of cash and bragging rights were on the line. Entries were extremely strong, we had 947 entries in the early rounds. These additional entries allowed the 2017 PKC Spring Super Stakes Awards to increase well over $43,060 from 2016. In the end, over $247,000 was paid out to deserving members with smiling faces!

We sure could not have pulled this off without Toby Crosby and the guide network that worked closely with him from Sullivan, Greencastle, Washington and Robinson. Our full-time judges, not only worked all night, but many helped with the entry taking process as well; Shane Patton, David Dial, Clayton Dial, Tom Wilson, Mike Lennon, Darrell Mayne, Payton Roberson and Ronnie Wilbanks. Both Dustin Troutman and Justin Haddon served as full time Hunt Directors and late judges at Washington and Greencastle all week. We usually picked up 6-8 volunteer judges each night, as well.

Thanks go out to all who judged, guided, served on panels or helped out in any other way. We appreciate all of you! I am happy to report that the PKC Super Stakes program is not only alive and well, but it is growing with Sire, Litter and Pup enrollments all on the upswing.

For all this we say, THANK YOU!
Prepare yourself and your hound. Hunt the dog, read the Blue Book, and your Good Book!

I know that the Greencastle club did an excellant job. The hunting was great, a bunch of coons were treed and everyone was very friendly.
