Ely District Striking Competition 14/05/2016

There was a record turn-out for the Ely District Striking competition this year, with 8 teams in the Call Change section and 4 teams in the Method section. The judges, Alan and Marj Winter, congratulated everyone on entering, and the district on arranging the competition, and on the organisation of the evening. The winners of the Call Change section were the home band, Longstanton A, with Cottenham placed second and Stretham third. In the Method section, Cottenham were placed first and retain the trophy, with Over second and Longstanton third. Full results are here. Thanks and congratulations are also due to the Longstanton band for the delicious and plentiful refreshments that were provided during the evening, and to the Cottenham band for winning the railway-themed quiz.
