    The competitors: P Birkett, M Clay, M Walls, M Carr, A French-Wollen, K McNee, A Prins, L Almond, M Prins
    At 4am 15 competitors and spectators set off from the Shaftes with Mr French-Wollen at the helm who drove us through the snowy conditions safely.. 4.5 hours later we arrived at Penarth Leisure centre, Cardiff - the venue for the championships. We set about finding some good seats and got comfy - ready for the 9:30am start.
    When the clock struck 9 the venue was packed with competitors, officials and spectators - the 6 competition areas had been marked out and everyone was either warming up or looking nervous! The event organiser, Master Ian Lawes VII, called the first categories and the competition was well underway by 10am. There were plenty of familiar faces, including Master Nicholls, Mr Skyrme, the Imperial directors/executives, Mr Walkinshaw Tommy Hayes and Alex Heslop.
    One by one competitors were called up, some got golds, silvers, bronzes - but everybody took away the experience and a new set of goals to achieve. Your instructors are very proud of you!!
