Our annual prizegiving and AGM will be on 17 March in Milton.
Anne will arrange for the club trophies to be engraved with the 2017
winners' names, but she needs the trophies to be returned to her by mid
February at the latest.

So - if you have a WAOC trophy, please can you pass it on to myself or
another committee member e.g. at an event, or make your own arrangements
to return the item to Anne by mid-February.
