Due to the complaints for the lateness of the last issue of TDW a reminder that we are sticking to the close off date of the 1 Sept for schedules approved and notices/reports etc for the next issue. Let me remind you that Distinctive Web Creations that do our TDW are not to blame in any way for past lateness, they get the information and it is always done in a timely manner. Also I might mention clubs are run by volunteers who also have fulltime jobs and families and dogs and run dog shows. They all try very hard to get the schedules in on time but sometimes it does not happen for many and varied reasons. Those who complain should get on a committee and see how difficult it can be at times. Yes volunteers should and are aware of their responsibilities on committees but in the real world things don’t always go to plan. If we had a few more volunteers on committees then things might run more smoothly and more timely. We will be having an AGM for one of the clubs in the next month or so. Here is your opportunity to join a committee and make sure things are done in a timely manner and submitted on time and therefore TDW will be out on time.

Padlock Issues at the Front Gate

It has come to our attention that our members are incorrectly locking the main RASNT gate. This is not an isolated instance, but infact has happened 6 times in a 4 month period.

The inconvenience caused to RASNT staff is not tolerable and continued issues may lead to denial of use of that gate to DogsNT members.

There is a picture on the Shean Road gate of the correct and only procedure for locking that gate.
