Thank you to the Mells Foxhounds for planning this special Championship Weekend! March 3 & 4, 2023 - Friday & Saturday
Countdown to Finals Weekend! We are looking forward to seeing you in the Heartland of Central Tennessee! The fun begins with a Welcome Hunt Friday, for Juniors and grownups alike. We are planning a fun, safe weekend, making new friends, seeing familiar faces and a lot of foxhunting camaraderie, especially amongst our Juniors. To that end, the schedule has been tweaked a bit from years past: most noticeable is the Finals awards ceremony and dinner will begin immediately after Individual tests conclude and our esteemed judges have placed their divisions. Also, awards and dinner will be at the competition site. We will dine, celebrate, crack whips, blow horns, judge hounds until the sun goes down. Plenty of time for a good night’s rest before our trip home on Sunday. So, shine those boots and clean that tack, and get ready for the JNAFHC Finals Weekend!
