CETC Club Championships took place on 16th December 2018 at Lasswade.
There were 251 entries competing across 4 disciplines (TRA, SYNCHRO, DMT - and newly introduced for fun this year DMT SYNCHRO!). The event was a HUGE success despite the Clubs computer recording system completely failing us on the day – which caused a bit of a panic at the start of the day, especially with a planned 5 panels running - but was handled by the ‘old school’ manual recording back up way, by our trusty volunteers!!! PHEW!
There was a Tuck shop, Kit sale stall and our Famous Annual Christmas Raffle tickets were available on the day also.
We would like to thank this year’s Sponsors; Registers of Scotland and DowMcCartney Construction for their donation of £500 each towards this year’s Annual Champs event T-shirts, and to Edinburgh Car Sales who sponsored Coaches Kit (with a £500 donation) which was issued to all of our current Coaching team.
The youngsters did themselves proud, giving many fabulous performances, showcasing their hard work from the year, and cheering very loud and proud for their Club mates! Certificates were issued to all participants for TRA and DMT and the top 10 pairs in SYNCHRO. Top 3 placings were issued with medals. Overall level prizes were awarded to the following individuals who scored highest in their level across all age categories:

A great time was had by all! This event as with all Club events, would not be possible without the commitment and input of the volunteers at the Club, and we thank everyone involved with Club Champs and all other CETC events this year for their ongoing support.
'Team work makes the dream work'! And here's to a fantastic 2019 season!
