As competitors will have seen we have reluctantly decided that it is not feasible to run the Comps this year. Reviews by the committee and BGA have looked at likely government guidance and legislation, and the risks and challenges of running a Covid-Safe organisation. As well as protecting the competitors we need to consider club members, comps organisation, staff and visitors. Any competition also places demands on the local environment for accommodation, eating (and drinking) out, supplies and non-flying activities. The view is that there will still be significant issues around this by mid-summer and therefore to keep everyone safe and respect the local community the best decision is to cancel the Club Class this year.
We hope all competitors stay safe and enjoy some socially distanced XC flying for the rest of the season, and we hope to see our friends back at the BGGC when possible.
