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. The track was prepared for first class racing and looked superb but the access and parking were thoroughly waterlogged.
We would like to apologise to everyone who wanted to come and especially to those who had already arrived or were on their way. We did personally contact all those who had entered and also those who didn’t have dogs to run but had volunteered to help on the day.
We have rescheduled the meeting for Sunday, 22nd July (150 yards main straight and Veteran Crowns 150 yards straight) and therefore the entry has been re-opened with a closing date of Sunday, 1st July (postmark).
This event will accrue Superstars and Whippet News Top Ten points.
Existing entries for the 1st Championships are still valid and we can accept changes up to the new closing date above.
Alternatively, if you wish, we can refund your entry monies for the 1st Championships or use them as credit for the 2nd Championships (bend) on 24th June.
Please notify me on firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 01233 813119.
Wishing you safe racing and hope to see you all soon.
