Headlines - News in brief
Missing Photos - The WCRA have insisted that some of the photos taken at the May Championship at Maidstone be removed as they show Whippets with Children and they have received complaints - hence the missing Pictures. However I cannot trace any complaining owners so until this item is cleared up the Photographs have been removed.
The track by the Motorway.
First Championship run in Kent since June 2003 - held over 150 yards on the Maidstone track after a wet night. The entry was disappointingly low for this Championship meeting. Congratulations to the winners - the full results pages can be found under the Championship tag on this site - home page yet to be finished!
Five new Champions & four new VCs - congratulations to the owners of these dogs on winning their titles at the Championships - WCRCh Dollybyrd, WCRCh Polly Flinders, WCRCh Satin Sunshine, WCRCh Scallywag and WCRCh Markamy's Red Fred - plus VC Sumerleaze Bay, VC WCRCh VC Game On, VC Pretty Color & VC Blade Bunny. All have photos under the Championship tag.
New members of the committee - Janis Burrow & Ian German were elected onto the WCRA committee at the 2015 Whippet Club's AGM. It is good that there will be some local helpers at the 'new' Championship venue in Kent. Congratulations go to Tony Mitchell for being awarded the Lady Moonshire trophy for services to Racing - Tony was responsible for the bend track design and construction at the 4th Champs 2014 at Moreton in Marsh.
Superstars leagues. The points scheme has been amended for the 2015 season, may be as a result of the actions of the Affiliated Clubs. Winners of Championship weight groups will now be awarded 16 points. This will be interesting in the lightweight groups where a single dog may well get 18 points and not beat a single dog on the track.
