August 9/10 – Gnangara Gallop
Gnangara Gallop will be run on the second weekend of August. We will hold all original entries for this race. If you wish to change, or withdraw your entry, please notify committee. If you cannot make the rescheduled dates, any fees that were paid can be credited towards other races, or refunded.
August 23/24 – Race 4
Race 4: The long rumoured Race 4 will be held in late August. We are not yet revealing the location as we are still awaiting confirmation that we can use the venue, however for those that need to book time off, these are the dates. We will likely run Saturday morning & Sunday morning heats (to be confirmed), and expect a 2.5-3 hour drive (South from Perth) to the race site.
August 31 – Pursuit in the Pines
Pursuit in the Pines: This is our annual charity race; a fancy dress and handicapped race run at Gnangara for 1 and 2 dog teams only. It’s a fun morning, and all race fees and money raised through raffles, food and drink will go to charity.
September 13/14 – End of Season Mushdown
End of Season Mushdown: We plan to hold an end of season campout at Stronghills, in the Avon Valley. A great end of season camp out to run the dogs on some new trails. We’ll run a few workshops, and likely have a few large campfires. A last weekend in the mud before the AGM!
