Members Day points

There is fierce competition for the Busby Trophies after one event – here are the placings after our first Members Day

Virginia Toogood on 12 points
Susan Johns & Jenny Mckitterick both on 10 points
Anna Thomas on 9 points
Still anybody’s race!
The Juniors are doing really well too, all very close with only 3 points in it.  With 2 more members days planned it’s anybody’s race at the moment. Will it be Kate Adams, Leah Wills, Charlotte Adams or Phoebe Wills lifting that Junior Busby Trophy at the end of the year? Or, will they pipped at the post by a dark horse jumping in at the next competition?
