KALAMAZOO, MICH. Aug., 24, 2012 – United Kennel Club welcomes all dog lovers to the Wayne County Fairgrounds in Richmond, Indiana, over Labor Day Weekend where hundreds of the country’s best coonhounds will compete, from August 30 through September 2, in UKC’s 53rd Annual Autumn Oaks event.
Autumn Oaks is considered by many to be the premier national Coonhound event, as well as a kind of “family reunion”. During the four days of world-class competition, thousands of spectators and participants travel from all over the United States and Canada to east-central Indiana to attend “The Event Where History is Made.” Participants compete for prizes provided by event sponsors, as well as prestige and national recognition, as Major Winners receive
national titles and acclaim.
The sport of hunting with coonhounds has been part of American history, going back to the early 1700s, and continues to this day in all parts of the country. In accordance with UKC Rules and Regulations, no game is taken and no firearms are allowed at UKC events. ”As individuals, we may be as different as night and day, but these seven coonhound breeds unite us into a crazy family of sorts,” Vice President of UKC Events Todd Kellam said. “And Autumn Oaks will forever be our reunion,” he added.
The coonhound community is proud to offer this family-friendly event. Spectators are welcome, but are asked to not bring their dogs or pets to the fairgrounds, as only dogs registered to compete are allowed on the grounds.
