There were 11 clubs competing in the competition and each club entered 4 PDIs and 4 Prints. PICO was 1st with 146 points, Deepings 2nd with 145 points and we were in 3rd place with 140 points. We were quite pleased to come 3rd (5 points more than Wisbech in 4th who normally beat us) although we were leading the competition at the halfway stage by 2 points following a strong showing with our 4 PDI entries. The Judge did a good job and was consistent with his scoring – only 1 PDI & 1 Print scored 20.
