Good news…organised outdoor meets are recommencing in England.
The Committee have agreed that organised single day Club Meets should recommence from March 29th with up to 20 participants. BMC Guidance based on Government policy must be followed. This does bring its challenges, but I hope that it also brings significant benefits to Members and Associate Members. I intend to run a Meet in the western Peak on Easter Saturday with numbers restricted to 12 given this is likely to be a very busy weekend [details to follow before 31st March].
Members of the Committee have worked very hard to develop detailed guidance; information on the meets available will be added as members volunteer to co-ordinate a meet. You will need to be logged in to access this information as it is held within the Members Only Documents area of the Website, which can be accessed here.
Ad hoc ‘Rule of 6’ mini-meets are also permitted and we imagine that members are likely to take advantage of these too, although they are out-with the Club organised Meets.
Log in and check the Members Only Documents area for regular updates on organised day meets close to your locality…we encourage members to stay ‘local’ as far as possible.
Finally, I would like to thank our Outdoor Meets Organiser and Covid Officer for their hard work in developing this guidance and our Website Team for developing the secure ‘hosting’ area in the Members Area.
