Indeed the might Hunter Thickheads will be on the trail again from dawn
to dark and with all respects to our previous mighty leader, the team
expects to crack 200 this year even if we are a bit shakey on
Blackbirds. So watch out Alan. We are an even greater force to be
reckoned with. Send all to contributions to the Hunter indeed! Our
champagne team,led by Tom Clark will be competing in fine style as
well. Support the Hunter Thickheads and Lesticum Foridae!
Good Luck and Best Wishes
