Great weather contributed to a very enjoyable competition for all involved, both players and spectators alike. A buffet and drinks followed at Sheldon's base of the Chelmesley Wood RBL. Major Peter Stanley (Coventry Branch President) kindly and graciously presented the Dougie Portsmouth Trophy to Dave James on behalf of Sheldon Branch as well as the individual team runners-up and overall winners trophies. A great big thank you to everyone who took part, helped organise and gave their support to this event, it is very much appreciated.
