Fun at Sydney Lure Coursing Workshop

On Saturday 23 July 2016, Sookie and I attended a lure coursing workshop in Sydney run by the NSW Lure Coursing Association.  Instructing us for the day were Jeff and Kathy Lipps from the United States.  Kathy and Jeff are the breeders of Sookie's sire 'Vulcan' as well as many more coursing and show champions under the 'Windrush' prefix. Jeff is also a lure coursing judge and President of the American Sighthound Field Association.  It was great to get the benefit of their vast knowledge and experience.  It was also fun to catch up with some of the other puppies from the litter.  Five pups were in attendance on the day and all did very well, showing of their keen natural instincts. Some photos here of Sookie taken on the day.

On the Sunday we stayed around to help at the Lure Coursing Trial (Sookie is too young to compete yet) and the NSW Lure Coursing Association Annual General Meeting, at which I became a committee member of the Association.
