Competitions update

On the 15th March Anthony Williams travelled to Newtownards just outside Belfast to compete in the National C competition in the Irish Gala Weekend. The results website has pretty much been offline ever since and so we have not been able to get a detail result but we do know he came 2nd - well done Anthony!

Last weekend saw 16 of our members competing at the regional grading competition at Harlow, 11 of them at Regional G. With only four out of one hundred grade G entries qualifying to Grade F it is no surprise that few of our members achieved personal best scores although first-timers Tilly Ashcroft, Jonathan Gibb and Callum Wylie performed creditably. In other respects we did have some success stories with:
  • Abbie Goldsmith and Charlotte Hussey taking 3rd and 4th places in the 26-strong under-15 girls Grade G;
  • Jamie Perry coming 2nd in the under-15 boys Grade G;
  • Joe Dulieu-Hasler also coming 2nd in his first outing at Under-13 boys Grade F; and
  • Both Emma & Daniel Frost reaching finals in the over-15 Grade D (girls and boys respectively of course) and each posting 2 new personal bests with Dan also just missing on a trophy in 4th place!
Several others also saw good improvements in their overall ranking.

Upcoming weeks will see us hosting a special competition in support of Georgia's Teenage Cancer Appeal (see our main website for more details) and our national competiotors travelling to Cardiff for the Gala Weekend there on 25th-26th April.

Jack Petchey - January Winner

The winner for January was very deserving following a couple of months in which she has worked very hard on her performance and form and is now showing some considerable promise. Well done to Rebecca Martin!
