    Ian,

    We have a larger team in place and with a non mechanical lure! We are kicking off with the terrier racing at 12.30 so hope to start the other racing before 1.00. The Roscrea Club are confident they can do it and I have confidence in them to do it. If it runs later than 6.30 I'll buy you a pint and if it finishes before 6.30 you can set me up one on Sunday!

    does non-mechanical mean live?

    Be sure to widely publicise the whippet registration papers requirement or people are likely to be caught out with no documents even if their whippets are kc registered

    Shane uses a manually operated lure which he claims is less prone to breaking down and more sensitively controlled.

    We will be publicising the splitting of the whippet classes.
