VCA Representatives Course

Postby Kate Eltringham » Thu 26 Jan 2017 6:42 pm

A requirement of running retrieving, field trials and RATG's is the appointment of VCA reps. It is not an onerous task just one that needs to be completed. Keeping in mind that anyone associated with the running of the event for a club or is related to a judge officiating at the trials CANNOT be appointed as a representative the pool of reps has been severely depleted over the past couple of years and has been left to a miniscule group of people (thank you Marg Carty and Peter Eley who have covered a huge amount of the trials the past year or so).

Dogs Vic are running two courses one north and the other south of the city in March, please give serious consideration to volunteering to becoming a representative - the more reps we have the less onerous the job. Details listed below:
