I agree 100%. And that's what I'm attempting to do. I can't fix the fence alone, but what I could do alone is improve the running area.
You already have a bad taste in your mouth I see and I don't blame you. But what my intentions are, is to do my best at improving the grounds to their former self.
I've been a member for 12 years and just ran my dogs there. But now seeing what other beagle clubs are like I realize ours needs a lot of work and love. And that's what I'm trying to do.
Looking back I probably met your father about 5 years ago, he was a very nice man. I can't remember his name but he told me ran his dogs in the morning and then again in the evenings. And from what you are saying that was probably him.
I'm not looking to complain about the club, I want to improve it. I know you are probably jaded from past experiences but maybe we can work together and make positive changes.
