  3. STATEMENT. The tablets found in a dogs cage at the lurcher racing at the game fair have been found to be propriety pain killers. They apparently were offered to a dog wrapped up in a digestive biscuit [not meat as had been reported]I It would appear the dog did not take any. We obviously deplore the actions of person trying ti administer tablets to any dog at the fair or indeed at any event but we are at a loss to understand what the person taking this action hoped to achieve as arguably the contents of the tablets could have enhanced rather than adversely affected the performance of the dog. We would make it clear that any person interfering with or attempting to interfere with any competitors dogs at the fair will be banned for life. GAME FAIR TEAM.

We would like to thank everyone who attended and contributed to the raffle. A big thank you to Mackin Transport, Albert Titterington, Jeff and Basil from Nutts, Omagh for their ongoing support of these charity events. Thank you to all the clubs that helped on the day – DWTC, Tullylish WTC, Armagh WTC, Drumbo Whippet Club, Tyrone WTC, their help and support was much appreciated. Thanks also to the Armagh WTC who sponsored a perpetual shield for Dog of the Day. A generous gesture from this very old club. Huge thanks to CRL Developments, who kindly give us the venue every year and to Jamie for his continued help and support. A special thank you to Appleblossom for her tireless efforts to report the results and take photos, sometimes a thankless job, but much appreciated. The £530 was delivered to Carole Murray, Dementia Support Worker on 19 September 2017. By 2021, 1 million people in the UK will be living with dementia and our donation will support them in finding new treatments and ultimately a cure.
