Recent news items

  • EA Champs trophy return - we request that trophies are engraved and returned in time for the presentation to the 2018 winners at the Champs. It is particularly disappointing for the juniors if the junior trophies are not returned in time. The cost of engraving may be reclaimed from EAOA. Paul and Barbara will be at several events before the Champs where they can accept trophies from people who may not be attending the Champs, ie NOR on 18 Feb, Tunstall on 25 Feb, SMOC on 4 March and CSC on 11 March.
  • The 2017 East Anglian League trophies will be presented at the CompassSport Cup/Trophy round at Shouldham Warren on 11th March.
  • Read Alex's report from Lagganlia on our Junior Squad page.
  • The EA League event at High Ash has had to be postponed. WAOC lost permission to use the area due the presence of a breeding pair of a rare ground nesting bird. They are hoping to reinstate the event later in the year.
