    Dear Members and Trainers Thank you for your patience with the trial process while we are developing new sets of trial rules. The club is here to improve our trials, and limit the ability for any mistakes to happen. Less mistakes, means a safer trial for your dog. After last week, we have adjusted a couple of the rules. Below is the full set of rules, so all trainers know exactly what is allowed to do and what is not. These conditions will commence for race day on the 22nd February 2019 The new procedures are 1. Trials on race day must be out of the closed boxes and must either be a 305m trial, 520m trial or a 520m box to 520 m box trial. These trials may also be able to be done on a trial day. 2. Hand slips are only permitted on a non race day. Hand slips must finish with the lure pulling up at the "pirates" club rooms and must not exceed one full track length 3. Please let the 520m boxes go first. 4. All trainers to buy trial tickets from the secretary. Each trainer will need to fill out the trial ticket to explain the trial they wish to commence. If the ticket is not filled out, no trial,. The starters will not accept any verbal communications for trial distances. 5. Only the trials on the ticket will be allowed to commence 6. All dogs must be cleared to trial, without being on an injury stand down or have any suspected injuries 7. Trials will finish half an hour before the first race 8. There will only be 25 trials before the first race. All other trials will be held after the races on a Wednesday 9. There is no limit to the number of trials after the races 10. Trials booking for before the races will need to be done during the previous day, and should be lodged before 5pm on that day. Eg .. for trials on a Wednesday, Bookings need to be completed by Tuesday 5pm, and Trials on a Friday need to be booked in by Thursday 5pm. This should be via the secretary on the scratching line. Only reserve dogs are permitted to purchase a trial ticket on the day of the races. 11. All trial tickets will be numbered, and you must go in order. If you are not there when you dog number is up, then you will lose your place in the queue and will be trialled when possible. 12. Reserve dogs and qualification dogs will have preference in line of that box. Reserve dogs to report to the kennel steward who will be given a vest on presentation of their papers 13. During trials, there will be a limit of 2 dogs to one handler at all times Please be courteous to our staff, as we continually review these policies.

    You would be referring to this part of the fiasco Mike. "Recently one of the club members filed a claim in the Disputes Tribunal against the club. Due to the findings from the hearing and after seeking legal advice we are implementing immediate changes to the trial process to limit the club's liability. At this stage these changes are temporary measures until further notice. "

    Sounds that way but I don't think so. At this stage it's more like who knows

    J.B./Ian Hastie.RIP

    I met Ian when I got into Greyhounds. I was lucky enough to lease Ciame Go, Mistress Honcho and Iteru Ka from Ian and Ron which gave me a great start. He was always available to offer his support, advice and friendship freely. He pushed me to become a lure driver at Auckland and helped with my breeding program for my dogs. I will always be grateful to Ian for giving me a great introduction to racing and am honoured to have called him a friend. Rest in peace Ian

    Didn't start this thread to stir shit Scooby and it's sad that others feel the need to fling it. Only asking what a lot of people want to know

    Hair Follicle testing

    Well considering I've never started a petition before why would I start now. And whoever you are that won't put your name to your post, what is wrong with asking a simple question without people like you turning it into a joke. Maybe you are one that doesn't want it to start?

    I was told over a month ago that this would be started within 2 weeks. Why are we still waiting?

    Sad state of affairs

    Go and read up on autism and then come back and tell me that. People also need to realise that he buried his grandfather the day before the incident at Wanganui and was told on that day that a certain person was going to bury him and his family. My son is 24 and has autism. I'm certain he would have reacted the same way in the same circumstances

    Sad state of affairs

    There had been an incident at Wanganui track a couple of weeks before but my point is that he had done nothing on the day ( yesterday) before being banned. If he had been banned from all tracks then he should have been told beforehand and he wasn't
