The Magazine Team are currently working on the next edition of The Saluki which will be available at SGHC Centennial Championship Show on Friday 2nd June 2023. It is likely that this edition - covering 100 years of SGHC existence - will become a reference item for the future. What better way to inform saluki enthusiasts worldwide about Champions made up/CC’s won/Agility/Lure Coursing successes - plus any and all other significant saluki events. There will also be the opportunity to congratulate the SGHC on 100 years of service to the saluki community. Whilst content is obviously of major importance for every edition of The Saluki - it is a fact that adverts and features brought together in this way contribute significantly to archival material for enthusiasts in years to come.
All adverts will be very welcome. Those that are required in the first instance are the ‘Insert Adverts’ on offer for all of those awarded 1st and 2nd places at SGHC Championship Show October 2022.

It is our hope that as many exhibitors as possible will wish to contribute for Centennial year. However because they form part of the editorial process – in order to ensure your pictures are featured – critique photos are needed as soon as possible. DEADLINE FOR ALL OTHER ADVERTS: Tuesday - 25th April, 2023.
