Internationale CACIL Herfstcoursing 2020 (English)

2020 is a special year, because of the Covid19 crisis, far-reaching measures have been taken in all countries of the world to keep the virus in check. The situation surrounding the virus in the Netherlands is such that it is again possible to organize coursing matches. In doing so, we will of course observe the measures announced by the Dutch government. The most recent measures can be found on the website of the National Government.

As a participant or visitor to one of our coursings, you must of course adhere to the announced measures. At and around the coursing field, the WvCNL ensures that the measures can be followed up and enforces them. So always follow the instructions of WvCNL employees.

On Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 October 2020, the WvCNL organizes the 'Internationale Herfstcoursing 2020'. The competition will be held on the beach of the lake of Recreation Park Ronostrand, America 16, 9342 TC Een (navigation coordinates: 53’6’0’’N 6’22’19’’E). 

More information about the Ronostrand can be found here.

The coursing will start at 10:00 am on both days, handing in coursing licenses between 8:30 am and 9:30 am.

The registration fee is € 22.50 for the first dog, all subsequent dogs from the same owner € 20.00. The program book costs € 1.00.

The provisional breed classification is as follows:

Saturday October 17: Afghan Hound, Azawakh, Basenji, Barsoi, Galgo Español, Saluki, Sloughi, Whippet Plus - Sprinter / National Class

Sunday October 18: Chart Polski, Cirneco dell'Etna, Deerhound, Greyhound, Irish Wolfhound, Italian Greyhound, Italian Greyhound - Sprinter / National class, Magyar Agár, Pharao hound, Podenco Canario, Podenco Ibicenco, Podengo Português, Whippet

Note: The classification of the breeds can still change due to the final numbers of registrations in the different classes.

As of July 1, 2020, 7.50 am, all Whippets (standard class) will be placed on the reserve list. As of July 6, 2020, 8:01 pm, dogs of all other breeds will also be placed on the reserve list. This means that dogs can still be registered and are eligible for a starting place at the 'Herfstcoursing 2020', when dogs are deregistered. Don't worry, in 2019 we had 17% cancellations (about 50 dogs).

You can register online for the competition here.
