Participants are advised that the Tasmanian Greyhound Local Rules and Policy Manual have been amended effective from 13 August 2021.
The Local Rules have been amended with Rules 36.14 and 36.15 being rescinded.
The Approved Lures policy has been amended to reflect the requirement that only synthetic material can be used as a lure in connection with greyhound training, education or preparation to race, racing or trialing.
If the Stewards identify any tanned and professionally processed sheep skin products during an inspection after 13 August and prior to 13 October 2021, then that product will be confiscated and the person and their offence will be detailed in Stewards Reports, but no other action will be taken.
From 13 October 2021 onwards, if a tanned and professionally processed sheep skin product is found on a property, an investigation as to a breach of GAR 86B (1) will be initiated.
