BRC and the Advisory Committee have been looking at the viability of rescheduling/carrying over qualifications for the above events. Originally, we felt that it would only be possible to do this with the Novice Championships. However, we are a member driven organisation and due to the feedback from our intermediate competitors we have reconsidered. With some changes to the format we feel able to run both the 2020 Novice and Intermediate Winter Championships alongside the 2021 Novice Championships at Arena UK, 26 – 29 March 2021. The 2021 Intermediate Winter Championship is unaffected and will take place as planned 23-25 April 2021 at Bury Farm.
The event will take place over four days with the 2021 Novice Championships occupying the weekend days and the 2020 Novice and Intermediate Championships taking place either side of this. Schedule and timings TBC. The FAQ document that accompanies this statement will detail the format, procedures for areas that did not run a qualifier and the rationale behind the decision not to reschedule for later this year.
As you can imagine, this will be a big undertaking and therefore we will need the membership to come together and help us along the way. We will no doubt require more volunteer support than usual, so anyone that is willing and able should email firstname.lastname@example.org
It is also worth noting that the event will only go ahead if entries are sufficient, we have enough volunteers to run safely and if we are permitted to run an event of that scale under the government restrictions at the time.
