Incorporating The Vintage Championship, Draw for Solo 6000 and a Band!
Wednesday, August 31, 2016
There are just under 3 weeks until the 2016 Harken Inland Championship at Rutland.
This event looks to be truly memorable as it also incorporates the 60th Anniversary Party and also the inaugural Vintage Championship and, on top of that, the Draw for Solo 6000.
Unfortunately the weather put paid to all the hard work and organisation that went in to our "Celebration event" and as we are now deep into the season the logical decision is to combine a vintage championship within our Inland Championship.
Before I am bombarded with hate mail can I say that we will look at holding a vintage championship, in it's own entirety, next year and beyond.
Harken Inland Championship
Harken continue to support possibly our biggest event of the year and have provided us with some fabulous prizes.
