In between the finals came the raffle & a trophy presentation on behalf of the BRCA to present the trophies for the BRCA Clubmans 17.5 U13 category as they didn’t all make it to Halifax. 1st place going to the talented Adam Southgate (12) also making the A final at the last round 2nd went to young Frazier Tucker (7) & 3rd to Ethan Southall (9)
The Raffle was then presided over by the sultry tones of Kris Kennedy joining us this season as the PA & the ever present Snippy ready to relieve any wallet of funds for this years chosen charity the Herts Air Ambulance.
At the end of a fun packed day all that is left is to thank everyone who attended & the unsung team that put it all together, we appreciate you coming and look forward to seeing you all for Round 2 Finally a big thanks to all our sponsors who without we couldn’t put this together.
