MOB MATCH CANCELLED - as expected

Follow a meeting last evening of our club committee it is with considerable regret that we have decided to cancel the running of this year's Mob Match.
It is not a decision taken lightly as we had already booked the venue, applied several weeks ago for the road closure, sourced a technical "T" as the memento (on the basis that the race would possibly be the only or one of a few races this year) and carried out extensive risk assessments with various scenarios for the event on the day. 
 
Having done all of this however we are still very concerned with regards to the "uncertainty" of holding events with large gatherings (our paramount concern is the safety of those competing and spectating) even under current guidelines which 15 weeks from now could be better or worse. Equally, but to a lesser degree, we have to consider the cost involved and also the current situation regarding the issuing of race licences and arranging suitable first aid cover-several organisations are not prepared to commit that far in advance.
 
We therefore felt that we should be in control of making the decision rather than be forced to do so due to circumstances beyond our control.    
 
Could I therefore ask that you forward this information to clubs in the CRRG and also advise that as soon as we have a 2021 date for consideration then we will make sure everyone knows!
 
 
Regards
