Hey BDawg, lets just find an empty football field and grab some pulleys from Home Depot and build our own! It CAN'T be that hard!
I was supposed to be going to Leesburg next weekend too. That stinks that they won't have practice! Although there is another one scheduled out there either next month or July so maybe all us DC people could meet at that one?
Turns out this is an international sight hound invitational – definitely not open to anyone. But should be interesting to go and watch -- presumably some of the best lure coursing top dogs in each breed will be there. Here is a site with more information:
Yeah this should be the premier lure coursing event of the year. Here is the breakdown of the dogs entered.
Afghan: (4 total) 3 open, 1 FCh
Azawakh (1 total): 1 open

A total of 276 dogs.
Piper is still way to young to actually course but I'm very excited about going and watching all the great dogs run. And it's also a great way to socialize a puppy, so many sights sounds and smells not to mention all the dogs they get to meet.:)
ladyeagle1998 are you planning on going?
I am planning to go – since I live in Ashburn it's right next door. Since I'm still at the stage of deciding which breed to go with this is a great chance to see a variety of the hounds. Unfortunately it appears the Basenji events are first both Saturday and Sunday -- and I'm not a fast starter on Weekends!
Well even though the basenjis are running first all the dogs run twice so the second run of basenjis won't be until all the other breeds on their field have run once. So even if you don't get there right when it starts you should still get to see the basenjis run once.
Since I'm not that close, I probably won't get there until around 10:30, maybe I will see you there.:)
Is anyone going to the coursing event next weekend in Leesburg?
