The club's print workers took a bashing at the annual Pat Goode Memorial Shield on Monday 11th November 2013, when they finished bottom from the 12 club entry.
Thankfully, before the break the four DPIs had placed us fifth equal - giving the club an overall position of joint seveth, one place lower than the previous year.
Mel Harris was the highest March scorer in both prints and DPIs on a night when only one maximum 10 was awarded in each of the two categories.
Judge for the night was David Gibbins ARPS AFIAP BPE3, with Peterborough the top club.
