Four Corners

The last official meeting of the season involved the voting for the Four Corners competition.

Unfortunately, we were down to three clubs this year but, nevertheless, it was a good competition and Cannock came out winners. Brevard (Florida) came second, followed by Rochester (New York), making their debut.

The Best Image was a tie between Carl Mason’s ‘Is this our train, Dad’ and ‘Grandpa Elliot’ by Marc Szczesny of Brevard.

Hopefully, the competition will be held again in 2015 with the full compliment of four clubs as this makes it a far more interesting event.
