Grounds & Habitat
Given the success with increased rabbit population in our second series running grounds, additional clover and orchard grass food plots will be planted on the far side of the island and the back 40 acres.

Spring of 2021, the membership will be cutting standing locus and black walnut on the back hillside behind the kennel.

Additionally, in the spring of 2021 a crew of members will be repairing and rebuilding kennels and holding pens.


Fundraising

Again working with SPAR Firearms, we had a very successful Hunt and Banquet in February, 2020.  Many teams and interested supporters showed up at the Banquet.  Over fifty teams entered the full four rabbits and vied for the $5,000 in prizes.  Lots of raffles and drawings are associated with the Banquet.
      
    We are always looking for good prizes for this year's Banquet.  Call an officer if you wish to donate a prize and be recognized. 

    Our other major fundraising effort is the September "Daily Number" raffle.  If you might be interested in any of our raffles, be sure to contact a Club officer to be sure you get on the Club's mailing and email list.

Building & Structures

    The new dog kennel continues to impress everyone who sees it.  In addition, the older kennels have all been refurbished and we now have over 35-runs/boxes available for short and long-term use.

Rabbit Propagation

    Fall of 2020, the upper training pen was cut to remove large trees.  Cover is sparse but will start to regenerate this spring growing season.  The lower pen needs some repairs prior to stocking.  A few club members have volunteered to help,

Membership & Committees

    We are always looking for new members.  Also, a "Friends" group has been initiated and has been very successful.

Field Trials

    The first AKC Field Trial, in over 30-years, was held on Club grounds in October, 2017.  Additional AKC "2-Couple Pack" field trials are now held in May and September each year.
