Message from the NZSDTA President  - August 2021 

Regarding 2021 Trans Tasman Test

Regrettably, due to the extreme uncertainty of safe travel with the ongoing Covid-19 situation,  I wish to advise  that the New Zealand Sheep Dog Trial Associations’ test team will not be travelling to Tasmania for the impending Trans Tasman test series in October.

This decision has not been an easy one, but in the end it is apparent that we cannot travel with confidence, due to the airline policies and government isolation rules that are continuously changing thus bringing significant financial risk.


Phasing out of Cheques

Due to our banks phasing out of cheques, competitors are advised to take their bank account numbers and give to club secretaries on entering at each trial.
