I was going for the whippet racing or whippet coursing By the looks things thats Moria game fair off my list of events Not every whippet in Ireland goes to Dunsilly


Do you know if whippets without kc papers are allowed to run at Dunsilly?


Whippets do not have to be KC registered to race or show at the Sporting Whippet Club N.I. events at Dunsilly, but they do have to be pure bred whippets - not non peds!

thats debeatalbe !so many arguments on this subject...were in this country could we get a whippet expert to tell the difference...? i know i cant!
i got told off for letting 2 different "whippets" run at my show, so what does can a show organizer do to make it fair? the perfect answer stimulated coursing ! it least will sort of the workers from the pets !!

well theres not man shows would do that fair play to use http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... . But if there are enough whippets there on the day will you give them a run? http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub...


Yes if there's enough Whippets on the day of course we will give them a run,we just did'nt want to tramp on Janet & Co toe's as they have a Whippet event
on the same day

i did not realize dunsilly was on the same sunday....ok that makes sense now!! i have that young one,she has never seen a lure ,do you think i could give her a spin up on her own to see if she will chase it ?

I am more than happy to provide an extra trophy & rosette for anyone who wants to attend the racing on the
Sunday with their Whippet ,providing there is enough that turns up.
But as i have stated Janet's Club is running an event the same day and this is the reason we have not planned for Whippet racing on Sunday.

Hi Ian, Was wondering if you are having classes for 'Veterans' and 'Pairs' in the whippets http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... as you seem to have classes for them in both lurchers and terriers? http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub...


Hi
We have never had these class's for Whippets,but it is an option will take on board and will consider for our next show .

Thanks

Is it always easy to tell the difference? Does anyone ever dispute what their dog is?

Ian, it would be nice if you could have Whippet Pairs, Vetern Whippet, and Overall Champion Whippet at this years show . Whippet people make up quite a sizeable part of the show goers. Also are you having a child handling class. Children of today are the show organisers of tomorrow

Hi Margaret

We always have had a Overall Champion Whippet at Moira,as regards the Whippet pairs we last had a trophy for this
class 3 years ago but stopped putting one on as there was never any pairs appearing in the ring and we have never
have done veteran Whippet.
But having said that i totally agree with you Margaret that Whippet's have become a big part of our modern show event's
and at your request i have ordered more trophies to accomadate your request.

And aslo we had been planning to have a child handling class at the sart of the show with treats to be handed out to the kids.
It is very important to our club and me personally Margaret that good folk like yourselves feel very welcome at our events.

Thanks For Your Post
Ian
