Where have those years gone and what a big miss on my Callander the Blue Ribband of Coursing is.

They were my fav 3 days of the year from the Call over in Southport to the 3 days Coursing on The Withens and Lydiate.

There were some friendships made on those fields that will last a lifetime.

Part of British History and Culture gone due to Incompetant ' treacherous politics.

1836 - 2005 Waterloo Cup Winners of yesteryear got a audience with the Queen.

Crowds of 80k were the norm.

The Grand National was born off the back of William Lynn and the Waterloo Cup.

Great Memories and a terrible Shame all round it's no more.

I still have the video (somewhere) of the last day..
