Western Branch Striking Contest

As you are all aware we had to cancel our planned contest on 13th May because too many teams were unable to attend. The Committee have decided to re-arrange the contest for a weekday evening between Monday 17th and Friday 21st July . A suitable tower will be found depending on the night chosen and the teams entered.

The purpose of the contest is to award the Branch Call Change Trophy and Method Trophy, and to select a team to represent Western Branch at the YACR Final. The final will be on Saturday 16th September 2017 somewhere in the East Riding Branch.

If your tower plans to enter a team please email Bob Schofield by Friday 30th June stating:

a) Name of your team b) Method or call changes c) Any evenings in w/c 17th July on which you definitely cannot attend.

In 2018 the Striking Contest will be held on Branch AGM day which will be Saturday 17th March 2018,
