Area Competition 2017

Area Competition Dates can be found here

Team members are required to pay their own entry fees at all competitions other than the Summer Areas and The Championships. At Summer Area competitions members will be asked to pay half the entry fee, with the Branch paying the remainder. In most cases, entry fees are not refundable should the member withdraw from the competition. Therefore, once a member has committed to take a place on the team they will be asked for their contribution. The Branch will pay the full entry fee for any member qualifying for the Championships.
