Sorry we didn't see you yesterday.
It was a ball though. I loved seeing all of the dogs run.
Katie got to do a practice run, which was great!
I am so sunburned, but I can't wait to go to another trial!
I didn't set up the table until the end of the day until most of the people left because they needed me to be paddock master. I even skipped doing a puppy practice run with Zoni because I was so sunburned…even after putting SPF 55 on 4 times! It was still fun though.
There are probably other trials in the IL area if you check the afsa and akc sites. The MidWest Coursing Club usually holds either an afsa or akc trial each year, last year it was at the Greater Racine Kennel Club, which is not too far from IL. http://midwestcoursing.homestead.com/index.html
The BCOSW will have a fun day in July 11th in Rockford, and I think they will have the lure equipment there for some fun runs.
You can also try Deb Verzyl of Orru Basenji's. She's in BC as well. Deb is not breeding currently as her hubby is sick and she has a full plate with racing, school (she's a teacher) and her other activities. But she may be able to direct you in the direction you may want to go. She is the curret VP of the Basenji Club of Canada. Her published e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
