These two major inter-club competitions will take place, as usual, during ANNUAL EXHIBITION week at the Civic Hall in Poynton.
Wednesday, 21st March is the date for the PRINT COMPETITION for the North Cheshire Challenges Trophy and the PDI KNOCK-OUT COMPETITION for the Alan Adshead Memorial Trophy takes place on the following evening, Thursday, 22nd March.
Judging for both events commences at 8.00pm prompt, but doors are open from 7.00pm for viewing North Cheshire’s exhibition displayed around the main hall. Early arrivals are able to reserve the best seats, but there is ample accommodation for over 200 people and a large free on-site car park.
We are delighted to have secured the services of two leading judges: Tom Dodd FRPS, FIPF, DPAGB will be commenting on, and marking all the prints submitted for the Alan Adshead Memorial Trophy competition which takes place on WEDNESDAY 21st MARCH and John Cartlidge EFIAPp, BPE4* will comment on all the DPIs as he eliminates them round by round in the knock-out battle for the North Cheshire Challenge Trophy on THURSDAY 22nd MARCH. Trophies will be awarded on the night to representatives of the winning clubs and a full print-out of all the scores will be available for collection as the evening concludes – at approx 10.00pm.
We anticipate a really strong entry from in excess of 20 top clubs for both competitions and look forward to welcoming a strong contingent of supporters from all participating clubs to Poynton’s Civic Centre in March. Refreshments will be available during the intervals, at which time our famous raffles will be drawn.
Full entry requirements will be e-mailed to all our listed club contacts early in February with a deadline for entries set for the end of that month.
