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)
Parks Challenge: 14th December 2019 REVISED DATE
Round 3: 11th January 2020 (National Rail Twist) REVISED DATE
Round 4: Saturday 21st March 2020 (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...

UPDATE: Due to engineering works on the Metropolitan line, the Parks Challenge scheduled for the 11th January 2020 and Round 3 of the Random 15 Championship have had to have their dates swapped with each other.

Therefore the Parks Challenge will now be held on the 14th December 2019 and Random 15 round 3 will now be held on 11th January 2020. Please adjust your schedules accordingly.

Is the Zone 1 challenge still going to be on Friday May 29th?

Not done a challenge for a while ... but that comes from getting divorced and all the stresses and strains that it brings!

Statement from the BERC regarding the rest of the Random 15 2019/20 season.

Round 5 due to take place on Saturday 30th May is CANCELLED as outlined here: http://www.tubechallenge.com/forum/view ... f=4&t=3614

Round 6 was planned to be part of the Tube Olympics in July 2020 but as real Olympic Games have been moved to July 2021, so our version will do so too.

Therefore, all this means that the current 2019/2020 Random 15 Championship season has been suspended and will not resume. Points gained from the first three rounds will be carried over into the new 2020/21 season which will hopefully commence as scheduled in September 2020.

Thank you for your understanding.

Tangy
The BERC
