i was wondering how mant of you all were planning on attending the english whippet derby at newton aycliffe as the man from the council is a very good friend of mine, i spoke to him the other night and he was saying that the council have gave us anther £500 to go with the £2000 all ready add so weve decided to add the £500 for the mondays open, i also know that there booked a top artist for the sat night with disco and are booking another artist and kareoke for the sun night this will be the best english whippet derby yet. the food is great we eat out there quite alot and really cheap. anyone wanting to know anything about newton aycliffe please ask as i live here, there plenty to do
Hi denise i think it is a waste of good money best keep it in your pocket and invite a few people you like over and put it to good use in the best pub in town, only joking . Well done i realy hope those attending appreaciate the skills of a good beggar and enjoy a cracking weekend i am sure you and the others staging this event will do the best they can to make it a success and i hope i win it .
hi well done with the sponsership  

can you make camping Avaible for the week straight before

from the championship's for those coming up north if we can

afford it , ten hour's towing each way. lot's of money.
hi mark i will get in touch with my mate on the council and ask them if anyone traveling the week before hand to seaham would be able to camp all week or even leave there caravan at aycliffe if they want to go home for a week to return the next weekend i will see whats said and let you know but if not and you wanted to spend a week up here im sure i could sort something out
how big are the traps, will wonderwall get in and out

of them ok.
i think that chris brings there own traps the ones used at seaham last year but ayciffe have just got new brancephs traps so i dont know if youve ever run out of them there okay had alot of big dogs trap out of them over the years we had a 56 dog called max that use to run in the handicap for a couple of years out of them jacks back brock the track record at new brancphe a few years ago out of these traps so i would think that they will be okay
