Last night saw the annual Ashby CC Interclub. This year hosted by the Ashby CC at Smisby.

The comp was a 20 print open theme judged by Ralph Bennett who gave some quite insightful comments on the images.

ESCC eventually squeezed into 1st spot piping Ashby 333 to 331

Special mention should go to both Sally Thearle of Ashby CC for her image “Gentle Billy” and Phil Mallin of ESCC for his image “Lu Lu” which both scored 20 although when asked for an overall winner the judge did favour “Lu Lu”
