With heavy rain and cold weather, Sunday was not looking good, but …. the clouds disappeared and the sun shone on the straight track at Virginia for the 70+ participants. An 18 race program saw the season get underway with winners pretty well spread across all participants.
The usual coursing stalwarts were present with a few new faces. Don’t forget, your points only count from when you renew your membership. All renewals MUST be paid prior to our next meeting on Sunday 18 May.
Our fields are displayed on the GRSA website and I would suggest that you take note of the location of the fields for future reference.
Our next meeting is scheduled for Sunday 18 May – all grades catered for and four dog fields will continue for the time being. The starting time will be clearly marked on the fields.
