  • The results after the second EA League event of 2017 are now online. Trophies for 2016 league winners will be presented at the SOS event on 2nd April.
  • The EA Championships are on Sunday 19th March at Rushmere (SMOC). Please can all 2016 champions ensure that their trophies are engraved and either brought along on 19th March or given to someone who will be going. It is particularly disappointing for the junior winners if there is no trophy for them on the day. If you are aware of any champions who have left the Club or Region it would be very helpful if you could let the Secretary know. The prize giving will be held as early as possible on the day (weather permitting!)
