**AS OF 9/12/14, GHC HAS BEEN APPROVED FOR IT'S "SANCTIONED "A" MATCHES**
In July of 2011, Erin Hall, Eddie Dziuk and Kathy Weichert came up with the idea, that Illinois and Missouri (near the St. Louis area), needed a Hound Club! We quickly came up with a Club name and filed for 501c(4) status! From that day on, we have been on a mission to complete the AKC requirements to become a fully licensed "Specialty Club" by 2014!
We have gathered together a great group of people, from breeder/owner/handlers to AKC Judges and Delegates! Their expertise, experience and knowledge in their respective Hound Breeds is immense and we couldn't ask for a better start on our way to becoming one of the premier Hound Clubs in the country! We are based out of the new "Purina Event Center" located in Gray Summit, Missouri just 35 miles west of downtown St. Louis! We are incorporated in the State of Missouri as a Non-Profit Public Corporation.
