Laws Hill, Miss. — The Como Amateur Field Trial Club hosted its three stake competition November 10-12 at Hendrix Farms in Laws Hill, Miss. Korry Rinehart of Hinkle, Miss., judged all three stakes. He was joined by Joey McAlexander of Holly Springs, Miss., in the Shooting Dog, Gary McKibben of Hernando, Miss., for the All-Age, Jonathan Burch of Holly Springs, Miss., for the Derby.

A total of 32 coveys were moved throughout the weekend which made for a spectacular venue for this year’s running.

A huge shout-out goes to Guy and Burke Hendrix for the use of their property and facilities.

Another landowner to be thanked is Mr. Albert Lay. A portion of the first and third courses are run on his beautiful property.

Bobby McAlexander was in charge of the dog wagon. He did an excellent job, and was always ready and waiting in the right places.

Of course the triail could not be complete without the help of club members, Jonathan Burch, Jennifer Burch, Brad Kennedy and Joey McAlexander. All were a great hand at making sure the trial ran smoothly. Jennifer was in charge of the lunches and dog wagon goodies. She is to be commended for all of her hard work and time.

The official trial sponsor was Sportman’s Pride. Brad Kennedy and his team are to be commended for their generosity and support for our sport. Without their help it would be nearly impossible to host such a great amateur trial.
