Nationale Voorjaarscoursing Ronostrand 2022 (English)

Geannuleerd / Abgesagt / Cancelled

After two lean coursing years dictated by cancellations due to the COVID19 pandemic, we will start the Dutch coursing season in 2022 with the 'Nationale Voorjaarscoursing Ronostrand'. The coursing will take place on Saturday March 12, 2022 and will be held on the beach of the swimming lake of the Ronostrand in Een. Address details can be found here. The navigation coordinates are: 53 '6' 0 'N 6' 22 '19' E

With effect from 2022, the national Dutch regulations will change on a number of important points. Before registering for this coursing, it is important to read these changes carefully:

1. Height measurements for Whippets and Italian Greyhounds are no longer carried out in the Netherlands. In Dutch national competitions within a class is only split by gender (provided that at least 3 participating dogs of each sex are entered). In practice, this means that the former standard classes and sprinter classes in the Whippets and Italian Greyhounds will run in one class from 2022. When registering you can only choose 'Whippet' or 'Italian Greyhound', sprinter classes no longer exist.
As always, in 2022 all dogs from all over Europe with a valid coursing license are welcome at our coursing competitions.

2. The allocation of the (R-)CACNL has been changed in the 'Handboek Statuten en Reglementen' of the Dutch Kennel Club (former Kynological Regulations) and has been aligned as much as possible with the CACIL rules. To compete for a CACNL, an Exc-show result at a national show (in the Netherlands or abroad) must be submitted with the registration, obtained at the age of at least 15 months. The (R-)CACNL is awarded with a minimum of three dogs in the class and can be awarded up to a maximum of sixth place in the final classification.
The exact rules, included in the 'Handboek Statuten en Reglementen'', can be found here.

The start of the race is at 9am, coursing licenses must be handed in between 8.30am and 9.30am.

The entry fee is €20 for the first dog and €18.50 for all subsequent dogs of the same owner. The program sheet is free.

Registration for the 'Voorjaarscoursing' is closed on February 4 at 8.30 pm with 121 registrations.

When the official invitation is available, you will find it here.

To be eligible for the CACNL, you must submit proof of an Exc-qualification obtained at a national (CAC) show in the Netherlands or abroad at the same time as registration, at the minimum age of 15 months. This can be done by uploading it via the online registration form.
