Christmas in July 2014 will be held at Kings Park. This year we’ll be having a BYO picnic, and by very special arrangement, we’ll have Santa there delivering presents for all the young mushers. 11-2pm. Full details will be posted soon.

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!

Training

As a result of the warmer than average temperatures, the season is off to a slow start for those off us living in the Metro area. Until we start getting some regular weather patterns that work in our favour, weekly training times will be decided on a weekly basis. Once the winter weather settles in, we will likely run training regularly on Saturday Morning, Sunday Morning and Wednesday Evening at Gnangara. Please continue to monitor the Facebook group for regular updates. Less regular updates will be sent around the members email list.

Do you have a dog that loves to run, has heaps of energy and tends to pull when out walking?

Have you considered a sport where you can develop a special bond with your best four-legged friend?

Our club is involved in what is termed ‘Dryland Dog Sledding’.

With no snow comes the need to change the way sledding is done in Australia, so out comes wheeled ‘sleds’ that allow this to occur.

Our club can help make this sport a reality for ANY BREED that loves to run and have fun at the same time.
