Lure Coursing / Play Date

Lure coursing 2011

The Greyhounds Only Lure Coursing Fun Day is next Saturday, April 14th.  We need a tentative count of people so that we can be sure that we have enough food.  Please RSVP to Deann or Suzanne if you think you might be coming; how many people and how many dogs?  Thanks so much!  Looking forward to a fun day with the Greyhounds!  Please note, we have moved the time to 9:00 am start due to this unseasonably warm weather.  We won't shoot you if you arrive late, but those who get there early will get the most/coolest runs in.  We will have multiple kiddy pools to cool dogs off in and shade until about noon.  

 

The cost, whether your dog lure courses or straight races, is  $10 per dog.  Your dog can run as many times as he's able.  The cost for lunch is $5 per person.  There is no cost if your dog only plays in the play yard.  All proceeds directly benefit TAGS. 

 

If it rains on April 14, 2012, the "rain date" will be Saturday, April 28, 2012.  This event is for Greyhounds only and all Greyhounds are welcome!!
