A report from the Event by Mr Graham Knight

The first event was the Drill Competition. The 1st Redditch squad went first and then it was the turn of 1st Kidderminster squad. Anyone who has took part in the Drill will know the pressure and the nerves. After the judges Steve Bentham, Steve Howles and Dave Butler had finished adding up their scores it was time to fall in. 1st Kidderminster won the Drill and carried away the Battalion Colours and Drill Trophy. 

Next it was the Darts and Draughts Competitions that took place at the same time. The Draughts was won by 1st Kidderminster and the Darts won by 1st Lye. 

After lunch the Football took place outside. There was four teams in total and in the final was 1st Redditch and 1st Kidderminster. After twenty minutes of play it was 1st Kidderminster who walked away with the 1st place and the Football Shield.
