West Devon Win the Devon Inter-Area Jamboree for the Third Year Running
The Plymouth and South Hams Clubs combined to represent West Devon on Sunday 17th January 2016 in the Devon Inter-Area Jamboree at the Royal Beacon Hotel in Exmouth. Four South Hams club members were in the team - Ben Wilkinson (the West Devon team captain), Stephen Levy, David Archer and Phil McConnell. Unfortuanately North Devon did not enter this year and so it was a three horse race.
West Devon retained the trophy with 8 points out of a possible 12 - a very solid performance.
