Oak Grove Hunt Club Opening Meet
The new fixture is in Hudsonville, MS north of Holly Springs. The McGees purchased land there a few years ago and have made friends with all of their neighbors, who have welcomed Oak Grove Hunt to the “neighborhood.” Other members of Oak Grove have also purchased land in the area. The terrain is rolling pastures and woods – a great habitat for wildlife!
The traditional Stirrup Cup is the secret recipe of Foxy Walker, wife of the late Harold Walker, who has provided the mixture for the past 40 Opening Meets.
The Blessing of the Hounds was administered by The Rev. Stephen Cox of the East Win Christian Church.
Tally Ho wagons provided transportation for spectators to watch the day’s hunt. After the hunt, everyone gathered at the “party barn” of the McGee’s neighbors Barry and Martha Johnson for a fish fry, with entertainment by Ronnie Caldwell and the Jo Jo Jefferies band.
