Ed Cloutman on judging during Covid

I would be quite happy to judge an online inter-club competition if a club was prepared to organise it. 

I have done this remotely before and it takes the form of a PtoE file with voice-over, so it is just the same as a club night but you have to watch it at home on […]

COVID-19 and Government Advice

Some of us are thinking about online activities that we might provide.  Please keep your eye on Newsflash and […]
