Get the "Bunny"!
Lure coursing field trials have been offered by the American Sighthound Field Association (ASFA) since the 1970s, and since 1991 by the AKC & UKC as well. Sighthounds can earn the ASFA titles FCh (Field Champion) and LCM (Lure Courser of Merit), and the AKC titles JC (Junior Courser), SC (Senior Courser), MC (Master Courser), FC or DC (Field Champion or Dual Champion), and LCX (Lure Courser Excellent). For more information on lure coursing, visit the ASFA Home Page or the AKC Lure Coursing Page.
The NCWFA has been an active participant in lure coursing from its beginning, sponsoring the first ever ASFA field trial, together with the Mission Trails Borzoi Club way back in May of 1971. If you have any general coursing questions, want to volunteer, or can suggest any potential new lure coursing fields in the Vallejo/Fairfield/Napa/Dixon/Sacramento area (fenced, large, clear of obstacles, and available for dog use), please contact our lure coursing chair Jen Haas.
There is a desperate need for suitable fields for coursing events to be found in Northern California. What constitutes a good lure coursing field? First of all the field must be at least 15 acres, with 20 or more being ideal, natural grass or plow, free of obstructions [i.e: softball backstops, soccer & football goalposts, etc], where off-leash dogs are allowed. The ideal field is fully fenced, but partially fenced fields that meet the other requirements will be seriously considered. Reasonable field rental fees would be nice. If you think you may have located a potential location, please contact our lure coursing chairperson, Jen Haas.
