The site aims to provide our members with an up-to-date service, providing the latest news of our events and the results of our club activities.  2019 has been a busy yet successful year for the club and we're looking forward to a few months of rest before we get into the swing of 2020.  Please keep an eye on our website and social media for all the latest updates and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in the new year.

On behalf of the committee, we would like to thank our landowners, judges, sponsors, helpers, guest training and members for continuing to support us through what is a difficult time for everyone.

Keep safe everyone and we hope to see you soon.
