Trapper Jimmy Brooks

For the second year in a row, the National Lacy Dog Association was a Bonus Sponsor for the TDHA Hunt For The Hungry. The hunt was a huge success, bringing in 29,176 pounds of meat to feed needy Texans. We also had four NLDA members hunt with their Lacys as part of Team Pork Stars. Mike and Kas Brooks, DJ Middleton and Steve Williams caught an impressive 813 pounds of pork, earning them tenth place out of 68 teams.

The NLDA also took an active role in the Lone Star Hunting & Working Dog Expo. Our booth served as place for members to met while giving us the opportunity to educate the public on Lacy Dogs. Two members were also asked to give presentations in their area of expertise. President Jimmy Brooks put on a trapping demonstrations while Director Betty Leek held an informative seminar on raw feeding.

Thank you to all who supported these events. We hope to see everyone next year in Hallettsville for the 2011 Lone Star Expo and Hunt for the Hungry!
