Don’t give your entry through anyone else, I do not accept indirect or word of mouth entries, they’re too vague.

Visitors’ parking vouchers from Jim Wheeler beforehand, contact him direct.
COVID: This event will be played as if it is still the year 2019 and no specific COVID precautions will be taken, e.g. no social distancing. Please note: do not attend if you have COVID symptoms or have recently tested positive; facemasks are optional; hand sanitiser will be available; failing to shake hands will not be thought discourteous. And please be sensitive to others’ approaches to COVID risk, which may not be yours.
