Competitions 2016-17

Throughout the season, we have many competitions between ourselves and, occasionally, with other clubs.
Below is a summary of this year’s.



A Group entries For the 5 Club Qualifying Competitions, the A Group can enter 2 x Prints.
2 x Digital entries can also be entered but, if there are so many entries that the evening would run late, only one entry may be shown.
Alan Gould, the Digital Secretary, has to be clearly informed of either which is your first choice to be definitely shown or which one to be omitted, otherwise he will decide arbitrarily.
The Digital competition would consist of either all entries or just the first choice entries.

Only one 20 points

We will continue to ask judges to award only one 20 points for each of the 4 sections comprising each of the Club Qualifying Competitions.
