Junior Contests Peter McCalister writes: We are indebted to the Sinclair family for their help with compiling this list of contests. There is no central database for these competitions, and so we thought we would start one. If other junior members and their families can help expand this area, please be in touch with us on guidetothegames @googlemail.com. The Royal National Mod is mentioned above. Venues different each year but entry closes early. Note there are a number of local Mods throughout the country – check http://acgmod.org/ for details – the list below was accessed from that website in Feb 2012.
