thankyou! :worship::thumbsup: the 90degree thing had me confused for a while because I'd read it as no MORE than 90 degrees when it really should say no LESS, but your wording of no sharper makes more sense and is easier to understand. I'll study the course you've posted.

Another thing to take into consideration is that most courses are run in both directions so you need to make sure it works both ways. :)

Yes, I was looking at yours and imagining it going the other way. thanks. Did you plan that from a google earth map or have you got a drone?

Google earth. That way I can see how it fits in the actual area being used.

Cracking photos again Kirislin, love the Afghan in full flight :thumbsup:

We had our "Fastest Dog in Australia' heat on Good Friday, it was a lot of fun and Poppy ran like the wind - she is so eager and keen for the lure now :D

I believe there are still some states left to run their trials for this year's competition, so take your dog along and have some fun!

Yep, our club will be running it in Vic next month.

Look forward to hearing how you go Kirislin :)

I was just looking at the ANKC rules and wondered how clubs are going with getting judges - looking at the criteria, it seems like it would be pretty tricky to find anyone matching the below requirements, especially the bolded points?

Just curious, as not having participated in any ANKC sports before, how do 'new' sports get off the ground and get judges trained etc.?

12 LURE COURSING JUDGES

Australian judges recognised by the ANKC as eligible Lure Coursing Judges may be approved to judge at any sanctioned Lure Coursing Event, and must be members in good standing with the Member Body.

Overseas judges may be contracted to judge at sanctioned Lure Coursing Events in Australia, provided that they are in good standing and registered with an ANKC recognised overseas organisation.

A registry of Australian Lure Coursing Judges will be kept and maintained by the ANKC

.

There are two separate intake streams just as there have been for all the start up ANKC recognised sporting activities.

The first intake is the people who, in the opinion of their state or territory board/council, are suitable to be recognised as judges to get the sport off the ground. Without judges you cannot have trials so you have to start somewhere. These people across the states/territories I am familiar with have relevant experience (again, which is ratified by the board/council of their governing body) that means they are suitable to get things started.

Once trials have been run, then the judges' training scheme follows what is set out in the rules.

There has been unofficial judges in Qld for quite awhile now and they have trained under Sabine who is a recognised judge from overseas (and who was one of the founding members of the club). From there it will go in waves.

QLD ran a testing day to qualify their first intake of judges and one of the new NSW judges also went to that testing day.

Poppy had what could be her last ever course on Saturday :( We are moving back to the UK and from the looks of it there are no 'all breed' clubs doing coursing.

We will probably get a greyhound once we are settled in our own house, so will have to take it up again then and Pops will have to find some rabbits to chase in the meantime :laugh:

The weather was awful and we were at new grounds, so the course was a short 100m run. Poppy still loved it and forgot all about that rain once she spotted the course being set up!

Looking keen between her runs - let me see that lure!

These are her runs.....
