Striking Competition Results 2015

Wisbech District
Striking Competitions 2015
Date: Saturday 26th September 2015
Venue: Denver, Norfolk
Judges: Alan and Marj Winter
After last year, it was disappointing to see a reduction in the number of teams.  Only one official team, Methwold, entered the novices section, although they were respectably challenged by the scratch team of District Ladies. In the method section, two teams battled it out and March beat Shouldham by 1½ points, thus guaranteeing a rematch next year.

Winner March   
Second    Shouldham   
The result of this section was very close and the judges felt that both bands
would have made good listening on Sunday mornings.  March were judged as
winners, with 12 faults, and Shouldham came second with 13½ faults.

Methwold were the winners, and retained the trophy. DLB are to be congratulated
on taking part and we hope they enjoyed the experience and will want to do it again.

The District President, Brian Hullah, congratulated the winners and thanked the judges
for giving up their time. They were presented with thank you gifts. The Denver ladies
were thanked for coming along and providing refreshments. They had hoped to take part
as a team, but had lost ringers at the last moment. It was good that two of them had
been willing to take part in the District Ladies’ Team.
