The official 2018 Grading Tables of the Midlands Region are now online.
Please see our grading tables section for more information. Thanks.
It is with great regret that Roger Webster has had to withdraw from adjudicating the Championship Section of the Midland Regional Contest in Sunday 11th March due to an illness.
With Roger`s help the Midland Regional Committee have been extremely fortunate to secure the services of Steven Mead to share the box with Graham Jones at the Championships next month. Our grateful thanks and appreciation go to Steven for stepping in at the last minute and our very best wishes go to Roger for a speedy recovery.
Get those pencils out….
