New Random 15 Championship season.

Post by tangy » 28 Jun 2018, 23:26

The BERC here to sort out dates for the 2018/19 Random 15 Championship.

There is no Tube Olympics this year, so will be looking at the usual "one round roughly every two months" scenario with three normal rounds and three twist rounds.

We have the first two rounds pretty much fixed already, these are:

Round 1: Saturday 22nd September (Normal)- Cannon Street Run
Round 2: Saturday 17th November (Champion's Twist)- day after Children in Need

Round 6 will be in its usual slot- the day after the Zone 1 Challenge Cup (on Saturday 1st June 2019).

I am looking for the other rounds to be in early January (National Rail twist), late February (normal) and early April (twist round) but obviously avoiding Easter.

So I am asking you the challengers... is there any dates you definitely CANNOT attend or is there other events that I could tie an R15 onto (e.g. Comic/Sport Relief). If so speak up NOW...or don't complain when the chosen date does not fit your other commitments!

Thanks
Tangy- The BERC.

This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

For the unconfirmed 3 rounds-

Round 3 - Saturday 12th or 19th January 2019 look to be your best dates (Saturday 5th Jan a bit too close to New Year and people may still be off on holiday).

Round 4 & 5 - Easter is late next year (Sunday 21st April 2019 is Easter Sunday) so most schools will be off on holiday the 2 weeks before that. Comic Relief is Friday 15th March 2019. Therefore, my suggestion would be Round 4 on Saturday 16th March 2019 and Round 5 on Saturday 27th April 2019 (avoiding Easter Holidays). This does put it on the same weekend as the London Marathon like Round 5 this year!

Hopefully I have a place in London marathon I would recommend not as security would be very tight.

Although January is down as the 'National Rail' twist. it will also be the first R15 after the opening of the central section of Crossrail.

Cause for a 'commemorative start' at one of the Crossrail stations?

Peter has already broached this idea on the Facebook group and we are discussing how it would work with regards to the ticket barriers determining whether it is the "same or different station" as applies to the NR twist in particular.
