Report and results of the 2016 Wessex Trophy inter-club competition, held at the Corn Exchange, Dorchester on 31 October 2016

Huge congratulations to Wareham for winning the 2016 Wessex Trophy, and to Greg Duncan for his first place in the individuals while competing for Wareham.

Thanks to all our photographers (Tim, Frances, Cheryl, Di, Martin, Tony, Iain & Val) whose work we entered and which won us 2nd place behind Wareham. The top three clubs were Wareham (72 points), Dorchester (70.5 points) and Wimborne (68 points).

Congratulations to Val Duncan on gaining 2nd place in the individuals for her "Vulcan Reflection", with Frances Underwood’s "Pocket Friend" 3rd and Iain Friend’s "Mountain Hare" being Highly Commended. Here is a gallery of all the Dorchester images

It was a great social night with members of 8 different clubs coming together in a spirit of friendly competition expertly judged by Barry Senior. Biggest thanks of the night must go to John Tilsley for organising this competition again, as he has since 2000. Thank you, John!
