I have heard from many people how much they enjoyed the Centennial event at Hermitage Village Hall. One of the highlights which I did not mention in the Breed Notes last week was seeing Chris Ormsby along with Tessa & Tim Abbott. They were accompanied by their daughter Annabelle. Chris, like the SGHC, was born in 1923, what a wonderful spry lady she is. At the dinner she made a short speech about the dual functionality of our hounds and the importance of retaining this. Of course, in Chris’ day it was hare coursing which of course we cannot do now. There was a show of hands of people that actually did course their dogs with probably only 5 raising. We were pleased to be in that group plus we can say we still are running our hounds with the lure.
Hopefully the SGHC will in due course set up some dates and venues for lure coursing. I will post when I hear what is going on. Until then there is only the UK Sighthound Sport’s four events to attend. Lynn Ward contacted me letting me know that Nicole (Nicolefarhi Del Borghino (IMP ITA) ) won at the UKSS Summer Championship her 3rd Lure Coursing Certificate making her a Lure Coursing Champion. Congratulations!
