Welcome Members and Guests
Summer is pretty slow here for the Sunshine State Rhodesian Ridgeback Club.  We held a Coursing event in August and there were a few shows - including the National Specialty - that some members attended.  Now that fall is here, events are picking up and we hope to see everyone out and about.
