OM Beagling Report 2018
11 July 2018

For the first time since we merged with the Palmer Milburn, the Puppy Show was held in the College. On a beautiful day in late June, guests, visitors, College pupils and parents enjoyed a splendid show arranged by kennel huntsman, Danny Allen, and Master-in-Charge, Gregor McSkimming.

The hounds were also in the College on Prize Day when students and parents enjoyed the spectacle of them racing against one another.

As usual, the annual Lawn Meet was held in the College in March, followed by trail-hunting at Temple Farm.

Thanks to the enthusiasm of Danny Allen, beagling continues to be a very popular activity, with about 24 students coming out every Tuesday afternoon. This year’s winner of the Dempster Cup for Beagling was Arabella Methuen (U6, MO).

A very successful season involved trips to Wales, Northumberland and Cumbria, attended by current students and OMs. It was great, also, to welcome several young OMs to the annual Dinner in April

During the summer, the hounds were paraded at a variety of shows across the country from Builth Wells to Rydal.

As always, I would like to thank all the landowners over whose land we are allowed to hunt. As well as Danny Allen, our indefatigable huntsman, we are indebted to Masters, Max Rumney, Trevor Gore and Julian Chadwick.
