We thank all who supported the Jimmy Northcutt Memorial Shooting Dog Classic.

Thanks so much to our judges and a big thank you to Purina for their continued support and donations.

Also, a very special thanks to Perry Hicks who faithfully donates all the plaques every year.  We also appreciate our photographer, Curtis Moorer, and our griller, Michael Allen, who provided the delicious meals.  Both of these guys graciously donated their time.
