2014 Yorkshire Trios CANCELLED

BTBA Tour – Yorkshire Trios 24th to 26th May

It is with regret that the BTBA announce the cancellation of the BTBA tour event to be held in Sheffield on the 24th to the 26th May due to lack of entries.  Despite lots of work by the people involved in the Tour events to publicise the Yorkshire Trios on the Web, in the newsletter and via social media only 7 entries were received, which was not considered enough to make the event viable.
