Please make sure to pre-register for this event. We will be accepting registration and payment on arrival, but knowing how many people and dogs we will have for coursing and lunch is extremely helpful.

• When your dog is not running the course he/she must remain on a leash

• Everyone is responsible for picking up after their dog

• No females in season, please

• Feel free to bring lawn chairs and blankets so you have a comfy place to lounge in your down time

Lure Coursing:

• $4 per dog per run for members
