West Side Field Meet 2014
Saturday December 6th, 2014
This is the MHC West Michigan Hawking meet! This is a HAWKING meet, all about flying our birds and chasing game! No fluff, no distractions, just a day in the field with other falconers! This event is open to MHC members and immediate family. If you want to bring an interested friend, that is fine, but remember, this is all about hawking, so be prepared to get out in the field. Register
online or bring $5.00 per person the day of the meet. Dress for being outside all day (a change of clothes is a good idea) and some money for your lunch and dinner. PLEASE REGISTER BY SATURDAY, November 29th!
