UKU Nationals/EUCR-W 2018 Update

The UKU Competitions Committee have been reviewing the formats and schedules for all three divisions at EUCR-W 2018 (UKU Nationals). Apologies for the delay in sending this out to you, the original intention was the publish this information prior to the qualifying events taking place, however we did not want to rush the process at the risk of mistakes being made.

 

All competitions are to be held over two days, Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August.
