WCRA Championships 2020 & 2021
2020 has become a memorable year but a desperately sad one for many, many people – the effects of which will affect us for some time to come.
Our first priority has to be that of the racers’ health and recent developments regarding the pandemic are worrying therefore we have made the decision to cancel all our Championships this year.
Obviously we were looking forward to celebrating our Golden Anniversary in 2020, with so many of us racers in the older generation the health risk is simply too great. However, we do intend to carry over our 50th into 2021.
NEW FOR 2021
In 2021, the WCRA Golden Anniversary, we are offering the chance to win a portrait of your dog and also the opportunity to sponsor weight groups in the WCRA Championships.
We have on offer the opportunity for people to sponsor one or more weight groups in the Main Championships, Veteran Crowns and Superstars Veteran Sprint.
The cost for sponsorship is £10 per group per Championships or £30 for all 4 Main Championships for 1 group. Veteran Group sponsorship is £10 per group or £15 for 1 group for both events.
There is an option to commemorate a person or dog for a specific weight group or groups which will be published and displayed in the Program accordingly.
I found some excellent whippets of very high quality and was more than pleased with all my winners!
Temperament was fantastic all over and the only thing I would have liked to see different in the majority of the whippets was a harder muscular condition, but we all know it is Winter-time!
