East District Age Groups Round 2 – January 13 and 14 at Michael Wood Centre, Glenrothes

I would like to say thank you to everyone who gave up their weekend to volunteer and help at the East District Age Groups Round 2. 

It was a very long weekend but without your support we would not be able to run these events. Your help is very greatly appreciated.

A huge thank you also to all the technical officials for supporting our event. Your support is also greatly appreciated.

I look forward to seeing you all again at Round 3.
