Stoke Contest - 10th January 2016 - Review
On Sunday 10th January the 2016 Winter
Guard United Kingdom season "kicked off" at the Fenton
Manor Leisure Centre in Stoke On Trent with 24 units in
competition across 5 classes.
In the Cadet Class the Avengers Cadets
took top spot, out of 6 units, with their Car Wash show whilst
with 7 competitors in Junior Class South West Academy took us to
the Garden Of Eden to take first place in that class.
The 6 unit A Class saw Mayflower take
the early honours as they portrayed their show based around
taking The Exam and in Open Class Kidsgrove Scouts came out on
top of the 4 competing units with their fast moving Elastic
Heart show with Mayflower being the only unit in World Class
debuting their Excess Baggage show.
A great start to the new season and an extremely
good size audience for the first show made for a fabulous day of
entertainment and showed how the UK units continue to impress
and push the activity forward.
