Shooting Ratings 2017

Shooting Ratings 2017

The annual Shooting Ratings of the Weimaraner Klub of Gauteng will
once again be held this year at Oppiedam near Nigel on 24th June 2017.
We need to organize the following before then:

1) Arrange for birds for the tests
2) Arrange for catering
3) Arrange guns, throwers etc for the tests.

In order to plan and organize the Ratings successfully, we require
your input as to how many people will be attending and how many dogs
will be entering in each test.

1) How many dogs will you be entering?
2) In which tests will you be entering the dogs?
3) How many additional people, if any, will be joining you for lunch?

Because we get the use of the venue for free, we are required to make
use of the catering and cash bar for the day. Therefore we require
each handler of a dog to also pay for lunch. Cost of the catering on
the day will be R150 per person, which will also include coffee and
sandwiches on arrival.

The tests that will be offered this year and their costs are :

Novice Shooting Dog: Club Members – R150, Non-members – R200 per dog entered
Novice Retriever Dog: Club Members – R150, Non-members – R200 per dog entered
Shooting Dog: Club Members – R150, Non-members – R200 per dog entered
Retriever Dog: Club Members – R150, Non-members – R200 per dog entered

Note: Your dog must first pass Novice Shooting Dog before advancing to
the next test. You can enter for both Novice Shooting Dog and Novice
Retriever Dog on the same day but will only be eligible to participate
in the Novice Retriever Dog test if your dog passed the Novice
Shooting Dog test on the day or at a previous Ratings

All Weimaraners are welcome, registered and unregistered

Please let us know who will be attending and entering which test by
email to [email protected] or by phoning 082 896 0378. This
should please be done by 31st May.
