DIVISION 6 WITHDRAWALS:

Dinner Dance and Trophy Presentation 2013:
The Annual Dinner Dance and Trophy Presentation will be held once again at The Bridge, Walshford, on Friday 4 October. Again, please display the flyer sent to your Club on yoiur noticeboard.
Since the event has been held at The Bridge for several years, the Committee looked at the possibility of moving to a more central Harrogate venue, but were deterred by the prices asked. The Bridge is good value and ideal for our requirements.
