We have been lucky enough to be able to enter a team into each of these events in the past and we hope to offer something similar in 2017. This is likely to be the winners of the Scratch and Handicap divisions and possibly one other wild card place which will be played for at Gullane on the 27th @ Gullane as our final event.
