The dates for the 2019/20 season will be a little more complicated than usual due to the re-dating of the Parks Challenge which has been moved to January and also 2020 being a Summer Olympics year.

Round 1: 21st September 2019 (Champion's Twist)
Round 2: 16th November 2019 (Normal)
Round 3: 14th December 2019 (National Rail twist)
Parks Challenge: 11th January 2020
Round 4: TBC (Sometime in March) (Normal)
Zone 1 Challenge Cup: Friday 29th May 2020
Round 5: Saturday 30th May 2020 (Twist)
Round 6: Will be combined with the 2020 Summer Tube Olympics in July (Normal).

If this isn't giving advance notice then I don't know what is!!!

Hi tangy - thanks for the heads up - you just need to amend subject title to 2019/20

On another note - I'm just wondering - would it be possible to add a feature to the R15 generator sometime to enable a list of excluded stations to be excluded from a spreadsheet? I like to run the generator a few times in advance of an R15 to try out different permutations and the list of stations to be excluded this time is rather awkward to keep re-entering - the way the page is currently set up it's very easy to miss a station and accidentally include it - which is presumably why we occasionally find when we open the envelopes that there is a closed station on the list.

Obviously there'd be some work involved in adding this feature and I'm certainly not saying it should be added before 21st September - I'm just making a suggestion for a possible future improvement.

If you set it all up with your excluded stations and run it to get the list of 15 stations, hit F5 and it will refresh the page and also the station list with a new set of stations.

For reference re-running it from the results is what introduces the possibility of a nominated starting station being featured twice. I'm pretty certain it doesn't happen any other times. If you're doing it purely for fun anyway and you notice it happening then just press F5 (or Command+R for Mac users) and it should go away.

(no, you can't have a CSV upload, sorry)

And having done the F5 thing a few times, it also seems to reintroduce the excluded stations...
