Points Championship

Your Committee voted, earlier this year, to have the End of Season Presentation Night after the final Outdoor Competition. This year it will be held at Pentre Mawr on October 1st ( incorporated into a Charity/fun weekend) This means that the final Outdoor competition ( usually Henbury) can be included in the Points Championship for that year. This will make things so much easier all round. As this Season is the transition period, we will be including both last year’s Henbury and this year’s in the Points League. This will mean there will be seven eligible events. Your best six scores will be counted. You must have completed, without Elimination, four competitions in order to be eligible for the Points Championship.
