We had a good year at the EPA Inter-Regional Competitions at their new venue on Hayling Island finishing 2nd in Division 1 of the Inter-Regional Championship and 4th in Division 1 of the Challenge Tournament. Two of our teams with two teams from the Chiltern Region were the winners of Division 2 of the Challenge Tournament.
