    ** The committee have decided that aswell as our annual donation to charity (this year Chest, Heart & Stroke), all money raised from the raffle at this last event will be donated to Macmillan Cancer, in memory of our dear friend and Club founder member Eddie McKinstry who sadly passed away earlier this year. If anyone would like to donate anything as a prize, all donations will be gratefully received as we would like to raise as much as we can for this very worthy cause in Eddie's memory. **

    We are hoping to have someone from both of these charities/organisations present on the day to receive their cheques from the club.

    Please note :

    The SWC will run it's final race and show day of the 2012 season this coming Sunday at Dunsilly Kennels, Antrim. During the course of this years terrier, lurcher and whippet shows, a lot of accusations, allegations and in some cases downright slander, has taken place, played out for all to see on various forums.

    In going forward, our club will be considering it's options, the outcome to be decided...

    at our AGM early next year. In looking at those options the committee have asked me to post this, asking for anyone who intends racing at future club events to bring KC papers with them this Sunday if they have them for their dogs. This will not affect any racing on Sunday, but it will give us some idea of how many registered dogs there are out there.

    Just to clarify, KC papers are either English or Irish Kennel club registration papers, not a pedigree sheet.
