NAFA Flyball Tournament Seeks Record


NAFA® Flyball Tournament Seeks Record as World’s Largest

A new world record, Largest Flyball Tournament, will be attempted at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on Saturday, October 9, 2010, during the 2nd annual  NAFA® CanAm Classic Flyball Tournament.

NAFA®, the North American Flyball Association, is hosting the international tournament and hoping to set a Guinness World Record  (

Largest Flyball Tournament is a new category established by Guinness World Records specifically for this event, says Lee Heighton, NAFA® Executive Director. In order to set the record, we will need at least 500 dogs to participate.

Last year’s inaugural CanAm Classic was attended by 123 teams that competed in a four ring tournament layout added Leerie Jenkins, Chairman of the NAFA® Board of Directors. This year we will have six rings spread over four acres indoors. Teams will be traveling to Indianapolis from across the United Sates and Canada. We are looking forward to having the ultimate authority on record-breaking achievement recognize both our sport, and the enthusiasm of the dogs and people who play it.

The NAFA® CanAm Classic takes place at the Indiana State Fairgrounds October 8 through October 10, 2010. For more information, visit Sponsorship opportunities at a variety of levels are available; contact Nancy Garcia at for details.
