WGRF 2003 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE QUOTES
JERRY DESMOND, PRESIDENT WGRF AND CEO IRISH GREYHOUND CLUB:
"I remain thankful and indebted to the presenters and participants for their efforts at this year's conference. The information available for both mature greyhound nations and also those developing the sport was truly amazing. The attendance of the British Veterinary Society was most welcome and added immensely to the conference agenda. Finally, as greyhound racing continues to grow worldwide I am pleased to welcome many of the developing nations to the WGRF, and I trust that with such exposure international standards for greyhound racing will continue to be observed."
"e;In my opinion it was an all inclusive conference, we covered many of the critical areas impacting greyhound racing especially animal welfare issues and track maintenance. I was very pleased that the organisation of British Track Veterinarians was able to join us to see what the WGRF is doing in relation to safety of greyhound racing surfaces and welfare of greyhounds."
"The planners have done an excellent job attracting leading authorities from around the world providing us with updates about what is happening in their areas. It has been an excellent conference, very informative and worthwhile."
"It was a great pleasure to be a participant in such a prestigious conference. Such gatherings are of increasing importance as greyhound racing continues to grow across the world."
"A marvellous gathering of world expertise in greyhound matters."
