JK2017

As many of know the JK is mainly based in Sussex next year (http://www.thejk.org.uk/). The main officials are in place and most aspects of the event are on track. It’s now time to start working on the finer details of event organisation. Given the geographical spread of both our club and the JK, SO will be involved in three of the four events, with the intention that members will be available to help at the event closest to them.

It now looks likely that the JK that is being held in the South East next year will use this technology.
