Inter Regional Championships

Stephen Snudden has placed the following link on the EPA Facebook Group. Follow the link at the bottom of Stephen’s article to see day one fixtures for the Inter Regional Championships at Hayling Island.

With just under 11 weeks to go, this years Inter Regional’s draw has now been posted to the EPA Website. (Subject to confirmation of entrants, promotion/relegation)

The summary tables are replicas of those that will be on display in the control room with the addition of links to each days order of play.

When results are refreshed in the control room they will also get updated on the EPA website. Those players unable to make the weekend will therefore be able to keep up to date with the state of play.

As for last year the Junior Precision Shooting will take place on Saturday afternoon.

Refresh/Upload of the state of play will stop 2 rounds before the end of play on the Sunday. This is intentional so as to keep people guessing as to final positions, top teams etc.
