Versatility Weekend

The 8th annual Northwest Versatility Weekend, hosted this year solely by WWWA, will be held at the Roy Polo Field over Memorial Day weekend, May 23-25, 2009. This event is a showcase of the versatility of our wonderful whippets and the other sighthound breeds, and there will be something for everyone!

  • Saturday is straight racing - NAWRA for whippets and LGRA for other breeds.
  • Sunday is all-breed NOTRA oval racing, followed by a conformation match. We'll have a special class just for Versatility entrants, but also classes for young puppies, adults and veterans, so bring out your youngsters for training and your oldsters to revel in the fun.  ILPs and spayed/neutered hounds welcome!
  • Monday is ASFA lure coursing.
  • At the end of the day on Monday, Versatility awards will be conferred to the top ranked hound in each breed who completes all four events.
  • Other fun stuff: a silent auction and 50/50 raffle, potluck lunches with prizes for best dish, a pancake breakfast on Sunday morning, vendors, and plenty of practice opportunities.

We need volunteers to help with a wide variety of jobs. You don't have to be an expert to help out! We would love to help you learn the ropes, and there are plenty of non-running-related duties to help with.
