Provisional Race Dates, Season 2017/18

The committee, and in particular, Tim, has been busy securing race venues in preparation for season 2017/18. The following provisional dates have been agreed;

Oct 28/29 Sherwood
Nov……11/12 to be confirmed
Dec 9/10 Darnaway
Jan 20/21 Culbin
Feb 10/11 Rothes
Mar 3/4 Ford
Mar 31/ April 1 Bowlands

we look forward to seeing everybody again in the new season.

We have had one of our members contact the committee this week to inform us that their dogs have shown signs of kennel cough. After attending the vets it looks likely that this is the cause for the dogs’ coughing, and so they have asked us to inform all of those who attended Ford so that everyone can be on the lookout for any symptoms. As always, we ask our members to be vigilant with any illnesses to reduce spread to other kennels, and we greatly appreciate our member’s open honesty and consideration of others so that they are able to monitor their own dogs.

Race Results, Bowland Trails

Every season the last race seems to come round all too quickly.

This has been a great season for SDAS with some new trails and many new members, seeing an increase in the mono-sport classes. It was great to have Eagle Brae and Rothes back on the calendar, we hope to visit these trails again next season.

We are also looking forward to more new venues in season 2017/18, dates will be announced as soon as possible to let everyone book their holidays!

Thank you to Alan Daniels and Debbie Ward for their contribution to the organisation and running of races throughout the season, they will be missed on the committee, but we will be pleased to see Alan race his home-bred pups next season.

On behalf of the SDAS committee, thank you again to all our members for making the season a fun and enjoyable one.

Ford 2017 results

A big thank you to everyone who made the race at Ford, this weekend, an enjoyable one. I think that’s the fastest a course has ever been dismantled and packed away, with everyone helping with as much as they could. It  was lovely to see some new members, who we will hopefully see again at the next race and in future seasons. Particular thanks to Steven Studley, who liaised with Ford & Etal Estate and organised the race on behalf of SDAS.

As mentioned at the presentation, the next, and final, race of the season is at Bowland Trails, Blairgowrie, Perthshire on 18 & 19 March, just 2 weeks away. At this race we will also hold the AGM, a reminder to anyone who wishes to put forward any suggestions for changes or improvement to SDAS should send them by email to Mary Carter at  bowlandtrails@gmail.com or post them to Mary at Netheraird of Glasclune, Blairgowrie Perthshire, PH106SF.

Likewise, anyone wishing to nominate new committee member(s) should send the details to Mary with a bit of information about the nominee and what values they would bring to the committee. Reiterating what was said at the presentation, you don’t need to be a committee member to help out, we are always looking for new venues and race organisers, don’t be shy!

The closing dates for Bowland Trails are; postal – Wednesday 8 March, and email  – Friday 10 March, payment must be made with entries and can be by cheque, PayPal payments@sdas.org.uk or bank transfer, please ask for bank details if you wish to use this method and don’t already have them.

We look forward to seeing you there, here are your Ford Results.
