We need EVERYONE to take part in the qualifier on Sunday 11th March at Nescliffe, near Shrewsbury.

We are up against Walton Chasers, Wrekin, City of Birmingham (COBOC) and ERYRI.

I will send you further information next month about the entry process.


Also coming around quickly is the JK at Easter, where POTOC are organising the long distance event on Easter Sunday.

We need every club member to help on the day of this event, It will be one of the biggest events we have ever organised.
