Disappointing news today: no more Army events. http://www.baoc.info/
Can't see how this improves anything, anywhere, for anyone, at all. Just so stupid, narrow-minded, "COVID-compliance-seeking", & in keeping with the behaviour of many during the "2020 pandemic". (current infection rate in Bristol: 0.02% - or 1 per 5000)
And there goes many retired BOK & other club runner's fantastic Wednesdays. I'll miss them. & we'd only just re-started.
"Suspension of MLS Events
Sorry, The MLS is currently suspended as DIO have said no more than 30 civilians allowed at an event, as the military are unable to run the events without civilian helpers that means no orienteering for anyone. Drayton event from 7 Oct will hopefully be rescheduled for Nov or later. We are fighting the whole case, we may go for an interim model and ask 30 civilians to run the event for the military and then those 30 are also allowed a run. That would allow the various Corps Champs to happen in the run up to the Inter Corps. watch this space. Alternative is we try to find some non-military areas to run on, any suggestions welcome."
