The Whippet Club News & Archives – All Purposes
NEW FOR 2020
This year, 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.

We were all looking forward to our First WCRA Championships being held at Ryemeadows Club track but, despite our best efforts, heavy rain from the Friday evening, deep into Saturday meant we had to make the very difficult decision not to run the First Championships on Sunday, 29th April.
