In light of Greater Manchester being placed at a very high Covid alert level (Tier 3) the decision has been made to cancel all club organised events until the end of 2020.
Stockport MBC has refused permission for us to hold organised events in its parks at this time and, with members spread across Tier 2 and Tier 3, any club events could encourage competitors and helpers to cross into or out of the high risk area, against Government and BOF advice.
Sadly, MDOC have made the decision to postpone the beginning of the NSL series until January 2021, so the event scheduled in The Heatons on Thursday 29th October will NOT now take place.
As you can imagine, the decision wasn't taken lightly, but with the government guidelines strongly advising against travel between T2 and T3 (and vice versa) we felt it was the right thing to do.
Looking forward, we are hoping to relaunch the series in January (Covid - permitting of course).
Congratulations to Ben Kyd who won the 6th round of the TORUS Cup on Thursday, winning 4 of the 7 stations. He is now leading the competition overall.
John Kewley reports ...
Congratulations to Ben Kyd who won the 4th round of the TORUS Cup on Thursday! He is now 2nd overall, only 0.11 points behind, after the first 4 events.
River Edis-Smith completed the 4th round in 23rd place (2nd MDOC) with John Kewley being the 3rd MDOC counter - putting the MDOC team in 2nd place on the day.
However MDOC are still leading the Club competition overall.
