The Tulsa Sighthounds Association and the Trinity Valley Rhodesian Ridgeback Club are teaming up to bring an exciting event to dog enthusiasts nationwide. This December, they will host the 2023 AKC National Lure Coursing Championship, a thrilling competition that pits top-performing sighthound dogs against each other in a race to the finish line.
“Hold the dates! The 2023 NLCC will be held December 1–3, 2023, in beautiful Ardmore, Oklahoma, at the Wilkinson Ranch, a private property extended to us by a lovely couple. Also, believe it or not, we will have deeply discounted room rates at 2 host hotels for our volunteers as well as reduced rates for exhibitors. I think you will all find the property exquisite, and the city is being very welcoming to our event,” said Andrea Stone, the NLCC Chair. “More news to come, along with a planning meeting for all those that have generously volunteered to help this year!!!”
