We held our second inter club competition of the year today, which saw 98 competitors take part in three disciplines; Pattern, Sparring and Special Technique.
Our competitors aged 8 & under kicked it off first at 10am, after a short introduction and welcome from Mr McIlvaney, they got down to the business of striving to earn themselves some new medals competing against their peers. With the under 8’s finishing 20 mins ahead of schedule the umpires took a well deserved short break and a refuel of coffee, before commencing with the 9-13 age group. We must also mention Mrs Dickson who umpired all day today even though it was her “21st 😉 birthday” today!! We took the opportunity of course for a rendition of HBTY and a cake 🎂, before the second half of today’s competition, and finishing on schedule at 2.30pm 😁
Well done to everyone who took part today, it was a pleasure to watch you all perform to the best of your ability, whilst at all times encouraging team mates and new friends along the way. Whether you won a medal or not today you should be as proud of yourself and we as instructors are of you all. Top effort
