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.
