 New!!  TEMPORARY CESSATION OF NON MEMBER ENROLMENTS & ORIENTATION NIGHTS

Updated Tuesday 05/04/2022:Due to delays in Council completion of our training grounds we are unable to accept the enrolment of any further new members at this point.  There will be a temporary suspension of new enrolments from people who are not current members or who did not join at the March 2022 Orientation Night.

Please continue to watch our club website or Facebook page for updates.

FURTHER POSTPONEMENT OF RETURN TO CLASSES – 22 MARCH 2022

Updated Monday 21/03/2022:   Unfortunately our grounds at Glendenning are still not ready for training to re-commence,.  At this point Blacktown City Council are unable to advise  when the Glendenning grounds will be ready for us.  CLICK HERE to view additional information from Council.  Updates will be provided as they become available.

POSTPONEMENT OF RETURN TO TRAINING – MARCH 2022 

Updated Monday 14/03/2022:   Due to the condition of our grounds following the recent severe weather, we have no option but to postpone our return to training again.

As the grounds have been waterlogged Council have been unable to mow the grass, and Council currently have some of their staff diverted to help with the clean-up of flood affected residential areas.

At this stage we will be returning to classes for all members on Tuesday 22nd March 2022.

We will conduct fit-out of collars and leads for new beginners on the first night back of training. Updates will be shown here when they are available.

MARCH 2022 RETURN TO TRAINING – CURRENT TUESDAY NIGHT MEMBERS

Updated Thursday 24/02/2022:  It’s time to dust off the collars and leads and get the treat bags ready. We will return to training on our Glendenning site from 8th March unless there are unforeseen problems.

Although our buildings will not be ready until later in the month we will have our portable building from the Showground and access to toilet facilities. Our grounds are looking good and will be ready for us.

Please limit the number of people coming with you as there will be no facilities where they can sit under shelter or the availability of seats. It would be ideal if it was just the handler and dog for the first month.

Please note we cannot accommodate unvaccinated members at this time. Please be prepared to show your vaccination status or your exemption on your first night.

We look forward to seeing you soon. Denise Fraser – President
