Update for Coursing Ability Tests

Screen shot 2014-03-14 at 6.36.56 PM

We have now been approved for TWO coursing ability tests to be held Sunday, May 1. There is a 40 dog limit on each test. (This is two separate events.) We have posted a revised entry form which has both event numbers on it. Just check one or both (depending on whether or not you want to run one test or two). The tests will run consecutively.

The entry fee is $20 per test by pre-entry and $25 per test, day of trial entry.

If you have already sent in the first entry blank, that’s fine. If you have printed out the original entry form, and you want to enter both tests, just write the second event number (2016496104) on the entry blank as well.

We appreciate your patience as we tried to get all of this worked out, and we look forward to seeing you all at the Coursing Ability Tests!
