Fast CAT CANCELLATIONS
The Fast CAT events NWRRC was running for the following clubs are CANCELLED:
NWRRC in Ethel, WA July 25th and 26th, 2020
WWWA in Ethel, WA August 1st and 2nd, 2020
SBTCA in Ethel, WA August 8th and 9th, 2020
OKC in Enumclaw, WA August 15th and 16th, 2020
Tuesday, July 14th, 2020 Governor Inslee announced a continued “pause” in Phases for all counties in the state of Washington through July 28th, 2020. Thursday, July 16th, 2020 Governor Inslee mandated that counties currently in Phase 3 were “rolled back” from gatherings of 50 down to gatherings of 10 people maximum. NWRRC could not come up with a plan that would limit the number of people on site to 10 people or less per the mandate, so we knew we had to cancel the events. NWRRC then spoke to the contact person for Fast CATs for each of the clubs prior to announcing the cancellation of all 4 weekends.
The NWRRC, WWWA and SBTCA weekends in Ethel were paid through PayPal. I issued the refunds for entry fees and camping fees through PayPal yesterday, July 20th, 2020. PayPal shows it will take 3-5 business days for the refunds to process. Please let me know Monday, July 27th or later if you have not received notice from PayPal of your refund and I will find out what is happening.
All OKC Fast CAT entry payments were made by check. As stated on OKC’s website ( http://www.olympickennelclub.com/lurecoursing/ ), all checks and entries have been shred. If I receive any more entries in the mail, the entries and checks will also be shred.
NWRRC hopes things improve soon so we can schedule new Fast CATs when allowed under the Governor’s Phased Plans. We miss you and your dogs and hope you and yours are staying safe and healthy.
NWRRC Treasurer and Field Secretary
