At this time of year, we would normally be encouraging last-minute bookings for the BASC Dinner as well as inviting everyone to the BASC AGM. Regrettably, this year will be different.
Until the government introduced its rule changes in September, we had anticipated that larger functions would be possible in the autumn. However, at the point where we had to commit to the event or not, the likelihood of larger functions being possible disappeared. The changing nature of what is allowed in this pandemic also means that, whilst it might have been possible to plan the event, there was a significant chance of rules changing at short notice, forcing cancellation of the event. Reluctantly, and with disappointment, we decided that we had no choice but to cancel this year’s event. Those members that have paid will have received full refunds by the time you read this article.
Please put 19-21 November 2021 in your diary. We will endeavour to ensure that we have a bumper event. We are holding 2020 prices and there is no need to make any payment yet with your reservation.
Having no Dinner Weekend means we have to make alternate arrangements for the AGM. Following the success of the Pre-Championships Zoom Session, we will hold the AGM via Zoom. The notice of the AGM is included in this centre section of Backtrack. We hope as many members as possible will join in. We cannot offer you the usual buffet to proceed the AGM, so you will have to prepare your own drinks! If you are new to Zoom and would like some help in setting it up or checking its operation, contact us.
