    the following is a suggestion that was put to us and something Dee and myself have been talking about, it would help to hear what NNWRF members think

    As some members don't race the bends for one reason or another would you be interested in a 100 mtr race which would be from the traps at the top bend down to the finish

    This was tried at Warwick once before, I do recall it being vaguely successful with the exception of Jackerella deciding to go for a swim instead lol

    the bunny could be taken further round as for handicap and weight classes etc open to suggestions

    my own veiws - it sounds ok something for those who don't do bends but the more I turn it over in my head I'm really not sure regarding the safety aspects of it, mind you I don't even like the dash on the straight, having said that Highgate do have a 100 mt race,

    :wacko:

    My gut feeling is as you say Linda safety aspect, are you meaning dogs don't do bends purely because of the distance, can't take the bends well or don't do the 'bend' which even if on straight would they be steadying anticipating the bend which could cause collisions. I think the dash is good for dogs that do bend and I would think would see some good finishes, if a decent format was found, as another event think it could work would possibly be a good alternative to consolation racing for dogs wanting a second run if knocked out :thumbsup:

    my opinion on it linda would be forget it .getting straight dogs to run 100yds when they are at full flo and then stop on the bend i think its a disaster waiting to happen as jade said my own dog jackarella did it and it took me bloody ages to get that dog right afterwards (JUST MY OPINION ON THE MATTER)

    keep bends for bends and straights for straights simpelsssssssssss :thumbsup:
