The Abbeygate Shield is a trophy presented to the winners of the teams-of-eight event where Suffolk clubs compete against each other for the shield – and the honour of respresenting the county in the EBU's Garden Cities competition. The Garden Cities is the national teams-of-eight inter-County comptetition with a regional heat held in April and a final held in June/July.
Full details of the competition are on the SCBA website and a cross-table in the 'Team Report' item, left.
With much else going on at the club over the summer and early autumn, there were only two seminars in this year's 'Summer School'.
