(Apologies for any incorrect names)

Quite a list! 

Some famous clubs have no or few nominations, I wonder why?  Don't need the suits?  Don't run a 'New to caving' training? No members on UKC so don't know about the competition?  Not interested in competitions??

However, there are plenty of Clubs above who have been nominated and if you haven't yet joined in the competition, please do.  If you'd like a particular Group or Organisation to win they'll have a better chance with your nomination  :hug:

There are over 4000 views which is fantastic.  The more views and entries, the more popular competitions are the better the prizes and support (including future support for clubs) UKC can ask for.  Thanks, All  ;)

Oh and I've amended the end time to 10pm - same as another small event taking place on the 7th May  ;)
