Wildeklawer 2018 – teams

29 September, 2017 beet 171

The core teams have been retained for the annual Wildeklawer 2018 (probably on Sat 28 and Mon 30 April). Changes see HTS Middelburg and Garsfontein exit while Drostdy and Menlopark are back in.

There’s still the excitement of the finalised fixture list to come. In most parts 2018 fixtures including the St John’s Festival fixtures haven’t been finalised yet so based on info available here’s an idea of many of the clashes (crosses highlighted in red) that the Wildeklawer organisers will have to sidestep when they produce their own fixture list.
