Well done to everyone who took part in the Club Champs on Sunday 17th September ,
26 Members turned out to take part , which was a reasonable number when we look at the history, but quite poor when you consider that membership is now around 100. Are there any reasons, which we can change to ensure a better turnout for 2018
Please find attached the basic results sheet so you can study it before the Dinner and ensure , you are there to receive any earned rewards.
If for any reason you know you are to receive a trophy and cannot attend event, please can you ask someone to collect on your behalf, to ensure all trophies are presented on the night.
