I’m a member of two hunts so I’m trying to think what each does…
A raffle at each meet,
Annual hound sponsorship,
Quiz nights with multiple teams,
Festive meals such as Burns Night, New Year etc
This year, an on-line auction, including e.g. a day hunting up with the huntsman, a behind the scenes tour of a local racecourse, a day with an adjacent hunt, as well as art work etc
This year, an on-line raffle
Pre-Big Sport Event Q&A with panel of experts such as riders going to Badminton or Cheltenham National Hunt Festival trainers (popular with a wider audience than just hunt members),
Fun rides (about 10 miles) over some excellent hunt country with opitional jumps (good for attracting riders who don’t hunt)
Team chase (probably too insane for an American audience),
Get your horse ready for the season demo half-day with vet, farrier, nutritionist,
For one hunt I pay my subscription by a monthly standing order (a nice regular income for the pack) but the set amount I pay exceeds the actual cost so for two months of the 12 it is really a donation.
A personal favourite, a group hound walk. One pays and is then allocated a single Bassett hound to walk on a leash through some hunt country. Very sociable. Can have moments of excitement with a keen hound on a slippery slope.
