Random 15 Championship 2020/21 season.

What is everyone's views on starting the NEW 2020/21 season as usual on the third Saturday of September?

Subject to no local/national restrictions being force at the time.

I will review all responses and make a decision whether to proceed or not.

Tangy.

One for Tangy

Has anyone been to the furthest north, east, south and west London bus stop in the quickest time possible?
Diamond Geezer has already visited them, but not all on the same day. He made a blog post too: https://diamondgeezer.blogspot.com/2015 ... stops.html

Re: Kensington olympia new regular service?

Could I suggest this 'virtual transport race' should have its own thread (perhaps in the 'games' area of the Forum)? I've been contemplating whether to post a similar idea of my own, but it's somewhat complicated! The virtual transport race and opening posts have been moved to Quizzes and Games, pl...

I am aware of the latest news but still intending to host this as planned in our small group. I have phoned ahead and our usual pub is happy to accept us depending on the current guidelines issued by govt. (i.e. if they decide to close all pubs like Ireland has).

What about Abbey Wood?
Yes Abbey Wood is definitely in south London and on Crossrail so should be included when it opens (as should the Woolwich Arsenal Crossrail station as I believe that would be separate from the current NR/DLR station).

If a station is shown as a request stop in the timetable but no one requests that stop then a pass through of the station is accepted.
