New Competition Year

Members, welcome to a new competition year.
For this next competition year the committee has produced Gold and Silver award cards, for those members who achieve either of these awards in each Aggregate Competition. Our Society uses the awarding of Gold and Silver for progression to higher grades.
Other clubs use similar cards to reward their members for Honour and Merit. Unfortunately, there will not be an award for Bronze recipients.
These cards will be presented at the following month’s Aggregate Competition night, for every award of Gold and Silver.
It is good to honour those members who achieve the highest awards.
Good luck to all in this new competition year.
