Mask wearing is not compulsory but if you wish to then please feel free to do so.

It will be the responsibility of the club coordinator to obtain the necessary declarations and forward to the Covid Lead by 17/09/2021. Any subsequent changes to this declaration must be notified to the Covid Lead.

1.7 It is recommend that due to the nature of current circumstances, nobody commits to non-refundable travel or accommodation. The promoter will not be responsible for any losses, regardless of circumstances or cause.

1.8 By entering this competition, or the purchase of a coaches/team managers/chaperones pass, competitors and their supports agree that they will follow the instructions of the Covid-19 lead at all times. Failure to do so may result in the removal from the premises and competition.
