2013 Lakeland Open results

A small team from Clyde Judo was down in Kendal on Saturday for the 2013 Lakeland Open competition.

Despite relatively low numbers attending, it was a pretty tough competition and the team did well:

  • Erin Peden – Pre-Cadet U44kg – Bronze
  • Connor Wilson – Pre-Cadet U46kg – Bronze
  • Christopher Love Pre-cadet U50kg – Gold
  • Benedict Maclennan-Patton – Pre-Cadet O55kg – Bronze (5th)

We have a picture of Christopher Love in fine form on his way to the gold medal:

Our thanks to Kendal Judo Club for a well-run competition and the ever excellent bacon rolls.

Event round-up

There are a few competitions coming up that folk should be looking to enter (and sooner, rather than later, as entry often closes early).

  • Ultimate Rumble on 25/08/2013 (closing date 16/08/2013). This is a good competition for less-experienced players.
  • Granite City Open on 05/10/2013 (closing date 27/09/2013). Note that this competition is earlier in the season than usual.
  • Hibari Kan Junior Open on Saturday 26/10/2013 (closing date 21/10/2013). Note that this competition is grade limited and will be a good competition for less-experienced players.
  • Scottish Age Band Championships 2013 on Saturday 09/11/2013 (closing date 01/11/2013). This is a tough competition so check with Susie before entering it.

Not a competition for the club but certainly an event will be the Glasgow European Open Judo competition on the 19th and 20th October 2013 at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow.

Tickets are on sale now and this will be a great opportunity to see some top-flight Judo.

Book before the end of August for a free programme with every adult ticket!
