SilkenFest 2017 Lure Coursing Results

Parker. TX

We had excellent lure coursing, on a beautiful day with two highly respected judges (Karen Arends and Jack Downing), lure operator (Rick Brown), huntmasters (Keith Hicks and Iola Stetson), field committee, Silkenfest committee and participants. Thank you to Mary Childs for pinch hitting on inspections with Lynn Wall when one of our team was unavailable, and thank you to Victor Whitlock for helping everything to run smoothly as an exceptional field clerk. A successful National event takes a village, and fortunately the Silkenfest 2017 committee and field committee rose to the challenge.

Our first ISWS hosted National ASFA Specialty in two years was also one of our better trial entries, on Sunday, March 20, 2017. We had 31 Silken Windhounds running, with a total entry of 45 including nonregular (ISWS conformation champion and kennel) stakes.

Many thanks to all for entering your hounds and helping to make this event a success.

Judges: Karen Arends and Jack Downing
