Brighton Breeze - postponed to 2021

Post by Dougie »

Due to the covid-19 pandemic we have had no choice but to postpone Brighton Breeze 2020 until next year. We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused by this for those of you that have booked time off work, ferries etc.
It may appear an early decision, but we were approaching the point where the club were going to have to pay substantial and non-refundable deposits, we couldn't run the risk of losing that amount of money on an event that will more than likely be stopped or severely restricted by Government guidelines.
Apologies also to those Committee members that have already put many hours of work into this years show.

The club Annual Rally and AGM on the weekend of August 16th will hopefully still go ahead. It is a much smaller event, no access for the general public and far greater chance of social distancing. However this is obviously under constant review, any changes and you'll be the first to know.

We're looking at doing a plaque or sticker for this year overstamped with 'The one that got away' or similar. Be a shame for those that have a collection to end up with just a gap.

Maybe next year's metal badge and fridge magnet can say 2020/21 for those like me that have them all lined up in date order!
I think both prudent and sensible to not run this year...it's lot of dosh to invest in a risky time...and who knows what life in Sept will look like...
