Apologies for the delay in opening the entry for the 3rd&4th races of our Championship Series sponsored by CSJ, Mucky Mushers Photography and Trailbaby, being held at Darnaway Forest on the 7th & 8th December 2019 however we have been liaising with Ben from Darnaway Estate after learning there was Forestry logging due to commence near our race trail. As always we will ensure we give you the best trails you’ve all been accustomed to racing at this event and as in previous years Ben and his team who have been amazing at getting everything in place for us to hold a fabulous event have done so again!

The form(s) must be filled in/signed and sent via email.  Apologies as postal entries cannot be accepted at this time. If you wish to enter via post please drop us an email/pm and we will rectify it for you. FB messages will not be accepted for entries.

We are still running our 2×1 Single Day Races formation, however unlike last season, competitors who are running the same class both days are now able to change dogs. Championship points will be allocated for each days racing for our Members. Members are now responsible for providing their own bib numbers which must be visible for the Timing Team.
