Hi Club Competition Secretaries!

You should have had at least 1 email with your clubs keycode for the upcoming Championships.

During the mass email of all clubs, I unintentionally created a fall through error in a scripting loop which has resulted in the email containing your keycodes to be sent several times. Many times in some case!
Please accept my apologies for this; it won’t happen again!

If you have not received your clubs keycode, please get in touch with either myself (webmaster@) or the championship team (Championship@) via email or the support page.

Further information about the Championships can be found in the Championship Section of the website.



Results are available from the Championships main page.

There is also available a small selection of shots from Steve Kirkby.
