Thank you for the tremendous work on this. I will be amending my entry to add the early part of the O Festival. (I'll also change my age class- YAY!)
Great, thanks! Looking forward to it. The timing is perhaps a bit more complicated for us with school sports starting mid-August, but we'll make it work!
Interesting. This will probably pull us from the UK out. It’s the same exact week as the Scottish 6-days. So not “the same time next year”. it also gives us only a day to travel then back to Scotland if we did go to make it to the Euromeeting in prep for WOC 2022. This is going to be a hard decision.
Edit: IOF just announced the cancellation of woc 2020 so who knows Really still the competition calendar. Might make plans easier or might put a different euro meeting at the same time. Feeling like right choice by IOF though. We can’t just have two years worth of events in 2021. Good luck to everyone working out scheduling it sure isn’t fun!
Obviously, it's impossible to please everyone. Thanks for rescheduling. Looking forward to the summer of 2021 already!!
Thanks very much for the info, Stephanie and BAOC folks. I am looking forward to 2021!
Thank you BAOC! Looking forward 2021!
