Darren Marsh won the summer eclectic. Congratulations to Andy Harris for his clean sweep in the Club Championships and to Ian Tinsley and George Taylor for winning their respective knockout  titles.

c) Honours Boards: Work to update the honours and officers boards is in hand.

d) Summer Knockouts: these have now been completed with John Swain winning the Club Knockout and George Taylor winning the Seniors Knockout.

e) Winter Knockouts: the draw was done and put on the notice board. (See Special Events Page) It was decided that mid October was too early for the first round of the club knockout to be completed as it was only three weekends and included the weekend away. It was felt that min November dragged things on too much so the committee agreed that the first round of both competitions should be completed by end October with subsequent rounds one month later.
