Thank you to the Northern, HoE and Mercia squads for making this such an enjoyable event, we hope to see you all again next year.
Our thanks also goes to June & Mike Ricketts and Maureen Mountain who were responsible for the majority of the organisation on site.
There were a great many helpers that helped to make the day run smoothly, I would like to thank those that helped set-up the pistes and equipment in the morning and helped clear away at the close of play, and to those that were there helping all day whilst we were playing. Thank you all.
Thank you Morris (Goodman) for being our umpire for the day.
