Unfortunately a decision was taken to cancel todays Craig Cup ,The reason at the time was due to localised flooding around the course. There are still a few members who can win this years Boff Plate and as such it would be a shame to deprive them of the change to grab the glory,After battling away all season with that in mind a decision was taken to run the Craig Cup along side next weeks monthly Medal . Any details will be ironed out during the course of this week and will be clear come next Sunday before the Competition begins. we trust you will understand why this competition has to be run before the winter league begins, good luck to all those who have qualified for the Craig Cup Final.
