    Messara report

    Greg said yesterday that 1/2 the dogs coming in from OZ have a ticket. So how about the one with 1st ticket pays $1k , 2nd ticket $2k. and we do not take 3rd,one. As he said we have to send them to GAP, this is our problem not the OZs.

    Thoughts for AGM

    To whom it may concern, As the CD clubs have not asked for submissions for this years AGM I have a few for you to suggest. 1. All high grade dogs get a start when nominated. Eg. If a reserve in a C5 you would get drawn into a C4/5. The highest form C4 would run against the lowest form C5. The highest form C3 would run against the lowest form C4, and so on till all the higher grade dogs all get a start each week. If a reserve in any high grade race you would be drawn into a lower grade field. 2. Kenneling times to two hours,instead of the three hours. Eg. With split kenneling the norm and kennel staff there all day,If the trainer wanted a two hour kennel they should be allowed. This would mean the first four races would have to kennel,but the first seven could kennel if they wished, and so on. 3. Shelter for the dogs outside the kennel block. Eg. A cover for the dogs and handlers from the sun or rain, for the 10 /15 minuets before the race. 4. Dress code, shirts tucked in. Eg.Under the human rights act men and women should not be discriminated against based on there sex. At the moment men must tuck shirts in, while women may choose if they want to or not. In Australia they know it is a human rights violation and that is why they do not have this rule. Most men will tuck them in, but it should be a choice in an equal rights world. 5. Nomination closing times. Eg. Noms should shut in order of race days. At the moment PN Monday shuts before Auckland Sunday. Wanganui Friday shuts before Waikato Thursday. Noms should shut in order of race days. Thanks for taking the time to read and respond. Wanganui and Palmerston North member Earl Duganzich.

    Ray Huntley Memorial

    I would like to thank the Huntley family for giving coats as a prize,for getting in the final for the Ray Huntley Memorial . As we had 3 dogs in, we got 3 coats, which is very good for cold winter nights. And for them to give away a coat to all dogs that made the final. Again thank you, Bev Duganzich

    Not mine.I think we now have races on Wednesday, trials Thursday, races on Friday, so if you would like to trial you can only do it once a week at that track. you can trial race day but if you are break-ing in pups it is not a good idea. While I'm on it if you would like to go to the races on a Friday night you will have to book as they book out all the tables. They had 2 tables for Greyhound people. There is over 100 members but no room. Now this would be good if they gave something back to the member's who helped to build the stand. This year we didn't have a BBQ. EX Board member Bev,
