In 2006, the first ASFA lure coursing field trials were held here,
at Wolfwind Farm, followed by WRA & LGRA amateur race meets in 2007.
Our All-Breed NOTRA 300-yd oval racing was held in Glenville (Scotia) NY.
CLASS, the Central Leatherstocking Area Sighthound Society,
based in central upstate New York.
The membership is comprised of the old guard of tried-and-true sighthound folks
and young up-and-coming enthusiasts - the best of both worlds.
New members are always welcomed!
