Last Weekend

I've been remiss in mentioning our field trip to the Birmingham Race Course last Saturday. We, Southeastern Greyhound Club, go over once a year usually the 2nd or 3rd weekend in January. This year we had 68 people signed up to go. We met at Cumberland Mall and then met the West-side folks at the first Alabama Rest Center on I-20. Unfortunately I overshot the reststop and had to drive about 20 extra miles to get off and get on exits to turn around. OMG, I won't be doing that again!

Anyway, we then took our caravan from the Rest Center to the track getting there right on time to start our tour of the Adoption Kennel and then the one of the Racing Kennels. Then, on to watch weigh in and then up to our Skybox to watch a few races.

The highlight, of course, is getting to see the dogs race. Oh, and that they did. Here are a few pictures. Just an awesome time watching the Greyhounds do what they love doing!
