To their credit, GRSA have identified the issue, and are working hard to ensure South Australian race-goers can also enjoy a pleasant visual experience between greyhound races, by announcing The Greyhound Racing SA’s Bunnie of the Year.
In a move that is sure to see many questioning the relationship between sex and greyhounds, and one that is sure to have Queensland’s own Big Dog Bunnies shaking their proverbial tails in anticipation; GRSA has today announced one of the most exciting competitions to hit South Australia’s greyhound industry for many years, Greyhound Racing South Australia’s Bunnie of the Year.
One lucky young South Australian will become the South Australian Bunnie of the year and win over $4000 in prizes plus a modeling contract with FOX Models and become the face of Greyhound Racing SA for the year” said Natalie Bailey, Marketing Manager – Greyhound Racing SA.
Eager young “bunnies” can register online at : http://grsa.ccm-solutions.com/bunnies/BunnieSignup.htm and entries close January 22nd 2009.
While we at Australian Racing Greyhound will definitely be putting our names forward to be on the interview panel, we understand final voting for GRSA Bunnie Of The Year will take place 11th February 2009, but between now and then “Joe Public” will get his chance to cast a vote online by going to the GRSA website and voting for his or her favourite.
Aa a nice bonus for all us hard working voters, anybody who logs on to the website and who votes for their favorite Bunnie automatically goes into the draw for the “Be Hef for a day” prize, which also has a great prize; over $5k in prizes and a date with the 12 Bunnie Finalists.
Patrons can also enter on course by simply filling out the entry form and placing it into the entry box.
From the voting, 12 finalists will be selected, they will be interviewed by the selection panel which includes Board Members, model agency representatives, fashion icons and media personalities and they will also then participate in a fashion parade at Greyhound Park on Thursday 12th of February 2009.
The winner will be awarded at about 9.30pm that night.
The “Be Hef for a day” prize will be awarded on the same night (12th of February) but the prize will take place on the 19th of February 2009 (we are leaving this date free on our calendars !!!).
