At this worrying time I hope that you are all well and keeping yourselves safe.
As I am sure most of you are already aware that BRC announced yesterday (17th March) that all BRC activities are being halted until June 30th.
This will affect all of our club competitors, team qualifiers and championships, lessons and also summer camp and the planned ride at Badminton. We are seriously keeping our fingers crossed that after June we will be able to get back to business as usual however we obviously can't guarantee this. We will endeavour to get as many of our planned activities moved as possible but will not manage to move all of them and Camp may have to be put off until next year.
For any of you that have already paid for lessons, area quals and camp. You will be fully reimbursed as soon as possible.
So to keep our spirits up and give you all something to aim for we are putting together a schedule for a summer league of video competitions. There will be all the normal classes and each class will be a qualifier for our Club Champs which we hope will still be at West Wilts EC in September. If the worst happens and we are still on lockdown the champs will also be done via video. The schedule will be out asap.
Lessons are a little trickier. As a club we cannot continue to organise the lessons during this period as the insurance will not cover us however our instructors are happy to still help you in small groups or as individuals and Manor Farm can still be used as a private / semi private venue with or without your favourite instructor so long as you all adhere to the rules. Wash your hands and keep to a sensible distance from each other and please don't come if you are feeling unwell or anyone at home is unwell. If you want to keep up with your training please contact your fave instructor direct.
Also why not make the most of your SWRC family and maybe meet up for a nice hack or meet somewhere different. I'm sure we all have a favourite hack that we could share with a few others!!. If this is something you would be interested in please contact one of the committee or pop a post on the members only facebook page.
Let's all keep our fingers crossed that come July normality will be resumed and keep safe everyone.
SWRC has embraced the digital age!!!
