2021 South of England Junior Congress postponed.

Post by Andrew Martin » Thu Aug 27, 2020 6:16 pm

With regret, I announce the postponement of next year’s congress. If it is possible to reschedule, we will. We may have to wait until 2022.

I’m sorry about this.

Sorry to hear that.

If I may ask, is it the organisers' decision or was it a decision of the school venue?

Mutually agreed.

Basic common sense.

A diplomatic description of official "advice".
If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.

It's a shame but expected in these times.
I know, in the past a couple of our juniors from Lancashire travelled all the way down to play in the tournament.
It will leave a big gap in the OTB junior calendar.
I'll pass on the sad message to our Juniors.

Hopefully, we will be able to hold the Congress later in the year if things become safer and I can find a gap in the calendar. Yateley Manor has indicated that they would be happy with this. Then back to normal, last weekend of January in 2022.
