Ontario Lure Coursing Association originally consisted of a group of people who got together in the late 70's to have fun when lure coursing was being developed as a sport for sighthounds.
In 1979 the first official trials were run on June 16th & 17th at Coldcreek Conservation area in Bolton, North of Toronto. These trials were held under the auspices of CSFA, (Canadian Sighthound Field Association) which was the governing body for lure coursing in Canada at that time.
On Saturday the entry was made up of 8 Afghans, 6 Borzois, 1 Scottish Deerhound, 1 Greyhound, 5 Salukis, 16 Whippets and 4 Irish Wolfhounds (total 45 Hounds). The Sunday trial was bigger as there were 3 Afghans and 2 Borzois added. There was one less Whippet entered so the total number of hounds was 49. As was usual for any club starting up the first time in lure coursing the result was a big financial loss to the members of $432.88, however the trials were successful
The club became inactive for a few years but then started holding trials again in 1983.
OLCA currently holds trials 4 times a year. Two trials in the Spring; May and June. A weekend in New Liskeard in August in Northern Ontario (6 hours North of Toronto) and we finish up the year in October.
