4th Annual Flyball Tournament this weekend


Staff report



GREENVILLE – Are Your Rrrrrready??? The dogs are back in town! Local Flyball Club, Extreme Insanity Dog Sports, is bringing flyball back to Greenville on May 14 and 15 from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Darke County Fairgrounds Coliseum.

It’s free to the public.

Not sure what flyball is? It’s a 4 on 4 dog relay drag race where each team sends one dog at a time down a straight line course. It’s 51 feet over four jumps to a spring loaded box where a tennis ball awaits the dog. The dog catches the ball, returns back down the 4-jump course where the next dog is anxiously awaiting to start the course. Currently it takes less than 15 seconds for the world record run of four dogs, 32 jumps, 408 feet and 4 dead stops and turns!

“Now that’s a fun dog sport for all to watch!” said organizers. “Come out for two fun-filled days and cheer on the local and first Ohio team, Extreme Insanity Dog Sports, as they go head to head with some of the fastest teams in the world today in the fastest sport on 4 legs…FLYBALL!”

Arcanum’s New Winery, A.R. WINERY, is sponsoring the tournament. For more information call Russell at 937-423-2546 or visit us at www.extremeinsanityflyball.com.
