RQ reminds stakeholders that December is the final month of phone nominations before online nominating becomes compulsory for all Queensland greyhound meetings.
We now have most trainers nominating online. However, we still have some trainers who have not attempted online nominating. RQ urges trainers to get this done as soon as possible to ensure they are accustomed to the OzChase system come the new year. RQ will provide support to trainers who require assistance using the system and a user guide will be provided to the industry, which can be referred to at any time.
If you do not currently have an OzChase online nominations account or you require help with setting up your account, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1800851155.
