Southwest Area Competitions Weekend

This year, the Southwest Area competitions weekend was returning to Weymouth. Around 25 members chose to spend the whole weekend up there competing in various competitions and going to parties. It was also time for the dancing, show choir and member of the year competitions at southwest level. First of all it was the dancing on the Saturday night, where Launceston gained a well deserved 2nd place. They gave it it their all, but it was Devon that came away victorious. The other two competitons we taking place on the Sunday afternoon in the pavillion theatre. Club chairman, Oliver Stephens was taking part in the member of the year competiton after winning the Cornwall round. He did very well to acheive third place, competition was very strong. Following this, it was the drama competiton. Launceston chose not to enter this year, but cornwall was represented by St Buryan who came third, Somerset came first. Finally it was time for the Show Choir competiton. Teams from Devon and Somerset were also participating and as we were last to perform, we knew what whe had to beat. In the end, we came joint first with Devon - the judges couldnt pick a winner! Both teams will go ahead to the national finals to represent their counties and the South West in Blackpool on 8th May.
