Area Mounted Games

Well done to all the teams that competed at the Area competition in Caerwys on Sunday. They were all very well turned out and a credit to our Branch. The Senior A team (pictured) finished in 5th place and B team in 7th place. The Junior A team finished 3rd and the Junior B team finished 7th.


The weather was better than last year, but this time the seniors had to endure the rain and wind and it improved for the juniors in the afternoon.

Thanks to all the helpers and stewards who had to stand out in the rain all morning and the scorers and commentator in the commentary box, for making the competition a successful one; and to everyone who worked organising the competition and preparing the venue. Thank you also to Arwyn, Tina and Rachel for training the teams.

Good luck to the Junior A team who will hopefully get a wildcard for the Zone competition.
