THANK YOU to everyone who made our Lure Coursing trials a success this weekend! The terrain was tough and unforgiving, so rest up those tired paws and safe travels to everyone heading home. So many people stepped up to help field clerk, release dogs, encourage newer folks, and so on. Special shout-outs to Fiona for organizing the whole weekend; our judges, John and Pat for lure coursing, and Laurel for conformation; Marion and Ivy for their trial secretary magic; Thom, Ed, and Bert for operating the lure and keeping the dogs safe; Piet for being our huntsmaster extraordinaire; David and Emma for re-stringing over and over and over and over and - you get the idea; the Berlins for their famous jam sale that everyone looks forward to... and again, to everyone else who stepped in and stepped up and all of the competitors for coming out. See you next year! ... See MoreSee Less

Online entry through AgilityRocks and e-transfer payment is preferred but the entry page includes information for mailed forms and payments.
