The database includes all dogs who have run from Jan 2012 through March 24 2013. I have also added dogs who earned titles in the past 5 years (approx).
You can sort by breed, by dates that titles were earned, by FTE dates.
Please check to make sure that the owners name is correct, I use the owner contact information I have in the database to mail the titles/certificates earned each year.
If you do see any errors please email me.
P.S. If you are still owed a certificate for a title earned in the past few years and never received it please get in touch with me to see what the problem was.
I have created a document that reviews some of the more important and mandatory instructions for OB race secretaries. I will also be emailing this to the current race secretaries for all clubs who hold OB race events. If anyone has any other information that you think should also be included please email me. I am also posting a link to an excel file that is a great example of the correct format for results and includes all the information that should be included to ensure the results are entered in the grading guide correctly and in a timely manner.
Thanks so much for your help and cooperation.
Here are a couple of results submitted in the correct format that race secretaries can use as a template or guide. These results include all the correct information necessary. Thanks to all the race secretaries who take the time and effort to review the results and check for typos/omissions/errors before sending them to me.
There are a couple of new forms that I created to assist in the FTE entries.
Another successful racing year has come and gone and both Susan and I have been busy compiling and publishing the statistics and top hounds for the year. Congratulations to the Basenji Ari, who earned the most NORC points for 2012 (42 points). Ari is loved and owned by Terry Colbert and calls the Midwest region home.
NOTRA is an all volunteer organization which sponsors amateur oval race meets for a total of 14 breeds of sighthounds. Sighthounds get to enjoy their natural instincts to run, while chasing an artificial lure consisting of synthetic fur and white plastic trash bags. Amateur racing in the US was originally an activity for whippets and whippets still make up a large percentage of the entries at many NOTRA meets. This site is dedicated to promoting the sport of oval racing with the other breeds that NOTRA recognizes, hence the "other breed" designation.
Eligible NOTRA breeds include Afghan Hounds, Basenjis, Borzoi, Cirneco dell Etna, Greyhounds, Ibizan Hounds, Irish Wolfhounds, Italian Greyhounds, Magyar Agars, Pharaoh Hounds, Portuguese Podengos, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Salukis, Scottish Deerhounds and Sloughis.
