Lure coursing event to
be held this weekend
The hounds will be running this weekend at Misty Rivers Plantation, 117 Cross Dike Road on Puget Island. The Willamette Valley Basenji Club is sponsoring an AKC sanctioned All Breed Lure Coursing Field Trial on Saturday and Sunday, May 29-30.
Two type of lure trials will be held: a CAT or Coursing Aptitude Trial in which the dogs chase the lure around a random course, and a Fast CAT which is a timed 100 yard dash. After the Fast CAT, each dog receives a score expressed in miles per hour. Running will start around 9 a.m. each day and will consist of a regular CAT and a Fast Cat in the morning and again in the afternoon.
Entries may be made online at the Willamette Valley Basenji Club website. Spectators and their leashed dogs are welcome. Parking for participants is in the coursing field in back; parking for spectators is off the driveway in front. Limited handicapped parking and restrooms are available in the back.
