As many others, we are also obliged tofollow the rules of GDPR. We are a legal subject, an international nonprofit organization.
Our basic goals are:
1) Protection of nature, interest in all aspects of cynology, and the protection of interests of animals.
2) Providing useful (free of charge) services in the area of cynology in relation to the well-being and protection of animals.
3) Cooperation with other subjects on both national and international levels in the area of cynology and animal protection.
4) Participation in administrative and other functions which may have an impact on cynology and animal protection.
5) Publishing and distributing materials related to cynology and animal protection.
To our website we added the PRINCIPLES OF PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION (GDPR) in both Czech and English. You really don’t need to worry about this at all, we will only be collecting data that are necessary for our events. After all, we will probably need even less data than before. Please, get yourself informed about our new policy and do not worry that WGA might not be doing anything this year. If you want us to sponsor your weight racing event, contact us on email@example.com.
We promised to not organize any weight racing events ourselves in 2018 in case the FCI starts to doing so on their own and we intend to keep that promise. When the year is over we will meet and discuss FCI racing focusing for example on the number of events, their quality, and the number of participants. We will compare them to our WGA races from 2017 and then decide what our goal will be for 2019. We value your support deeply as weight racing is without doubt the future of our beloved sport.

WGA is true to its word. In 2018 the FCI started testing weight racing on a national level in some European countries. Because of this effort, WGA decided not to organize any events on its own this year. We will use this year to observe and evaluate the direction in which weight racing will go. If the results are not satisfying, we will reconsider our stepping back and will be happy to start organizing events again in 2019.
In the years 2016 and 2017 our races attracted many participants and were consideres a great success. Thank you to all of the coorganizers and sponsors! The biggest thanks goes to Dog Gear, our sponsor of many years. As to the sponsoring, there will be no pause in this area – we offer our resources to any weight racing organizers interested in our support. In case you want us to help sponsor your race, contact us on: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are sponsoring the European Weight Derby organized by the Amatori del Levriero club in Lostallo. This event will take place on the 13th of May 2018. Hope to see you there!
