Eight teams of three from each federation exhibited.
It was especially noted how well the Mid Anglia Federation results compared
with the other exhibitors, considering that most of the other federations
were represented by very experienced, often international level, exhibitors.
The judges were all recent "graduates" from an ABPS exhibiting and judging seminar held in Hitchin.
See the Featured Items (left) for the next seminar in November.
