2020-April Snap-a-Thon

2019 - November

2019 certainly had its ups and downs, however typically the club rallied and enjoyed a sumptuous Christmas dinner and good company.   Lots of presentations were made and our Judge for the evening was Peter Philip who presented trophies at our End Of Year function.  It was a great night.

Thank you everyone for your kind support and tolerance with some of the issues I have had, however 2020 is going to be a  great year and I am handing over the position to Ray Sweeting.  Ray will do  a fine job and is the lucky one to start the new year off with our new system, developed and designed by John Giddens.

CONGRATULATIONS to all our winners,  from EOY Competition and throughout the year.

Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas with your families and look forward to seeing you back at the club in the new year.

Josie
