 Field Trial #4 Sandbanks Hunt Club

 The Gates County Hunt Club "Sandbanks", in Gates Co., NC, will be hosting a VOBA hunt on February 7th, 2015. It is a 4 hour, 2 class speed & drive hunt, males and females, with trophies awarded to the top 15 in each class. There is an 18" height limit. Entry fee is $15 per dog with an optional $5 side bet. Registration begins at 5:30 at Hall Ruritan Club, 99 Tinkham Rd, Eure, NC, 27935. Cast at 7:30. To get numbers, call Bert Davis a (804)248-3441. The Hall Ruritans will be serving breakfast and lunch, and there will be raffles as well!

We have a field trial permit in place that covers all participants, as long as they have a valid hunting license in their state of residency

We are just below Suffolk on the VA/NC line. We are less than 5 miles

We are located near the intersection of 13 and 158, behind Tarheel Bar-B-Q, all the way to the Chowan River. We have 60 members, who cannot enter hounds, but are mandatory to judge. Come out and have fun!


 ~~About the V.O.B.A.~~

              Welcome to the Virginia Outside Beagle Association’s website.  The association was formed for houndsmen and sportsmen that love to hunt their beagles and strive to keep our sport alive.  We have been running a beagle field trial series on outside game for about 4 years now and it has grown into a huge success mainly in the southeastern region, but we wish to branch out to all areas of the state.  This is the second year for our association so we are always building and welcome all that want to come out and run with us at our trials.  This website will keep up to date trial results, pictures, association field champions, news, and other topics of interest.  The V.O.B.A. has grown a strong relationship with several hunt clubs who participate in our events and invite us to have our trials on their lands.  Each club has to send an application to the VDGIF to obtain a dog field trial permit (4 vac 15-290-115) to have events during the field trial season (Aug 1-May 31).  This authorizes the Assoc to have such organized events (not training).  The permit covers the species specified for the trial, but occasionally other game may be pursued and will be scored points (i.e.Fox).

            The membership dues are $20 per year for each participant, click News/schedule tab for more details on how to join.  The trials are $15 per hound to cover cost of trophies and to raise funds for the participating hunt clubs,  one dollar per hound will be donated to the VaHDA to aid in their support efforts. Our trial series have 6 point hunts with our first starting in September and the other events picking back up after the deer season is closed in January.  To round up the season at the end of our point trials there will be a Championship hunt for all qualifying hounds (Top 30 dogs per point trials).  So our Association invites all that enjoy running their beagles to come out and join us on a hunt.  We're looking forward to see you in the months to come.  We also welcome you to sign our guest book below. Thanks and Happy Hunting.
