Masters Dinner 2011

Barnham Broom Country Club in the County of Norfolk was again the venue for the Black Belt grading and Masters Dinner. The weekend starts on the Saturday evening when existing Black Belts and their Partners join the three SMA Masters and Grand Master Stanhope for a relaxing dinner at the Hotel. Having become very much tradition over the years, the Masters Dinner is held the evening before the Black Belt Grading. The dinner is only open to existing Black Belts and their partners. It’s a very relaxed evening where existing Dan Grades have the opportunity to meet and chat with Grand Master Roy Stanhope. Traditionally Master Soame always puts together a trivia quiz, which is always greeted with tremendous enthusiasm ! With such marvellous prizes available to the victor, the competitive side of all the Black Belts tends to surface and it’s become quite an achievement to lift the laurels for the evening !!! This Years Masters Dinner Quiz Champion was Maria Corder 1st Dan .
