LET’S CELEBRATE VOLUNTEERS WEEK!
Where would coursing be with its huge team of volunteers?
Put bluntly we wouldn’t get one course commenced.
The Executive of the National Coursing Association of Victoria Inc. would like to thank the volunteers at all of our coursing clubs. Each and every one of you contribute significantly to our wonderful sport of coursing.
Our tracks are kept in pristine condition, our facilities too are maintained by some industrious volunteers, not to mention our wonderful canteen staff who keep us feed and hydrated. Coursing day staff, from the judge, to the slipper, to the lure driver, to the club steward, to the slips steward and the catching pen staff all give their time freely.
At every coursing meeting you will see people volunteering their services to keep our coursing clubs active. In turn give our canine charges something different to let off some steam and let the wind flap around their ears and run at top speed.
Thank you one and all.
BENALLA TRIALLING - For those wishing to trial at Benalla the week before their cup meeting which is May 28, trials are planned for the Sunday morning May 21. Any queries feel free to contact either Murray Hehir or Andy Scott, for their phone contact details click here

A special thanks to the team at Sandown GRC., Greg Miller and Yvette Oudman for decking out the marquee. This area created a perfect atmosphere for the coursing stalwarts to talk about old times and to hear that coursing has a strong following in the Greyhound Industry. Thanks also to GRV for your participation and to the coursing folk who travelled down from Kyabram, Longwood and particularly the Charlton CC to be a part of a memorable night and witness Marty Sait's presentation of the Noel Banks medal.

FIELDS FOR THIS YEARS WATERLOO CUP AND SUPPORT PROGRAM HAVE BEEN UPLOADED ON THIS SITE.
The Executive of the National Coursing Association of Victoria with deepest regret, advise the passing of Lionel Kraemer. Lionel was a respected member of the Lang Lang Coursing Club committee, and a Lang Lang delegate and Executive member of the NCAV. Lionel was a passionate greyhound man for over 35 years training winners on the track and coursing ground. Some of his best charges included the Group 2 & 3 winner Phantom Devil, the Healesville Greyhound of the Year Bomber Lucas, and the 2015 NCAV Coursing Greyhound of the Year Noise Attack. Lionel's dream had been to win the Waterloo Cup and he had hoped he would have one last chance on his favourite coursing ground at Lang Lang in 2016 with Noise Attack, but sadly that was not to be. Our thoughts are with Cath and family at this sad time.

BENALLA PLUMPTON COURSING CLUB NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT!!!!!
At the Benalla meeting last Sunday it was pointed out to everyone present that the club is in DESPERATE need of helpers to keep this excellent venue available to all Greyhound trainers in the area and surrounding shires. If this club folds then this will impact upon any future trials being conducted at this facility.
Firstly as a Coursing Club who are unlike their cousins on the ‘circle’ are run entirely by volunteers. Yep, people who give up their time not only on the day to conduct a meeting but at other times to conduct trials and also to maintain the track. The Benalla club would undoubtedly have one of if not the best surface and it would be a pity to see it not available because there was no one available to maintain it. If you live in the surrounding area and can help out in any shape or form you might contact their secretary/treasurer Helen O’Brien on 0431 717 038 or their delegate to the NCAV Carolyn Mills AH on 0408 317 874 to offer your support as the situation is becoming desperate.
