The Silken Windhounds had the pleasure of participating in the weekend event and opening of the new large dog performance field in Holister, Ca. This place is huge, especially for here in Northern California! It has an upper field and lower field that can each easily host a good 800-1000 yd. course.

Region 2 Director Christy Beetz and her husband Bruce were instrumental in getting this field up and running in their small rural farm town of Holister, and they both have been very supportive of our Silken’s the past few years. The 2 clubs they are both involved in, PHFNC & MBCA, have been some of the first coursing groups to invite our breed out to course.
