CTBC provides end of the year awards for Hound of the Year (the Beagle that earns the most points by dogs beat for the CTBC season, only counting CTBC trials).
In addition, we give awards out for Youth Handler of the Year (only counting CTBC trials). All of the Youth Handlers also get a commemorative coin at each trial just for handling their own dog. This program is for kids that can actually handle their own dog with minimal adult help. In addition, CTBC counts towards the Michigan Youth Hound of the Year program!
Youth Raffle: CTBC provides goodies for kids to buy tickets for and win throughout the day, so that they have something to do at the clubhouse while parents may be out on a cast.
Adult Raffle: CTBC takes a portion of their profits and purchases items for the adult raffle. You can buy tickets and the numbers are called out for the winners. Bring extra cash!
50/50 Raffle: We also have tickets for purchase and at the close of the raffle, someone will win 50% of those proceeds!
NKC/ARHA has an apprentice program for Youth Judges – they can earn their judging card beginning at the young age of 14 so CTBC grooms its young people and helps them learn about good houndsmanship and sportsmanship.
