World Conker Championships 2011 Cancelled
Thursday October 6th, 2011
Due to today's high winds, it's been impossible to set up the conker playing area and marquees. Although the wind is set to drop on Saturday, the wind will be too high on Conker Day itself to risk running the event.
And so, after seeking professional advice, The Ashton Conker Club has decided to cancel this year's event.
Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused. We will be in touch with all competitors to discuss the 2012 World Conker Championships.
The Grand Conker Raffle draw will still take place in two weeks' time.
Anyone who has sold raffle tickets is urged to send ticket stubs and money to:
Players registered to play in 2011 are being contacted to ask if they wish to play in 2012. If you don't ask to play in 2012, your entry will lapse and your entry fee will be donated to charity.
