The road curves around, going past several farms and houses. You will crest a hill and 2755 will be on your right. There will be a STCGW Event sign at the driveway entrance.

If you are coming from the west, take Rt 15 north from Frederick to Emmitsburg, and then Rt 140 East toward Taneytown. You will pass through Taneytown, go a few miles, and look for Mayberry Rd on your left. Turn left, and then take the immediate left turn onto Bear Run Rd. and follow the directions to the farm above.

  4. To advance the interests of the breed and of the fancy and to foster sportsmanship and fellowship among its members.
