Scottish Districts Championships 2016

Thanks to all those who attended the Western District Championships. With 43 lifters, the competition ran on well into the evening and was the biggest Western Districts in living memory. Thanks to all the supporters, organisers, loaders and officials who made the event possible.

Following on from this, the Eastern Districts has 62 entries, which will make this an even longer day. It is certainly the biggest Eastern District Championship we have ever had.

Both these events are now so well supported that the board is having to consider how to handle the increasing numbers for next year.  The options seem to be:
   1 Having a 3rd District (Northern District)
   2 Running the current Western and Eastern District Championships over two days.
   3 Setting a qualification standard for the current Western and Eastern District Championships.

Your feedback on these options, or any other ideas would be much appreciated.

General Secretary
