The Tryon Hounds (NC) celebrated the conclusion of its 90th season of riding to hounds with a grand hunt ball held at the Lodge of Lake Bowen Commons. Over 120 Tryon Hounds members and their guests attended the black tie affair. The Hunt Ball, a longstanding tradition, is also a major fundraiser. The live and silent auctions were a big success, raising over $35,000 for the hunt.
