Kay Morgan, Chairman of the organisations Activities and International Committee stated,
“All members benefited from the varied competitions held over the two days with a high standard achieved by all. We thank all the judges, stewards and sponsors for their continued support of Wales YFC events, without their support it would be very difficult to hold such a varied programme of competitions for our members.”
