02-04-20 COVID-19 UPDATE

Further to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, the Flag Officers have agreed that the club will continue to be closed for organised racing, training and social events for a further period up to May 31st. Any events detailed in the Social Programme during this period should be presumed to be cancelled.
We have also decided with regret, that due to the organisation involved in putting them on, we need to make an early call on two further events scheduled for June and July.
These events are:

  • Saturday June 6th – NBYC Has Talent
    Postponed until later in the season
  • Saturday 18th July – The NBYC Summer Fundraising Ball
    Postponed until 2021 (The office will be in touch to arrange deposit refunds)

 I very much hope that we shall begin to have a clearer view on the effects of the pandemic as we enter into early May that will allow us to begin to plan racing, training and social events for the remainder of the season.
Despite everything, we do have a couple of things coming up to help entertain you during this period of lockdown.
James ‘Duggers’ Dugdale will be running a ‘Facebook Live’ Quiz Night – watch out for details being announced shortly!
I can also share that Ian Richardson is planning some virtual racing – If you’re interested, just head over to the NBYC Facebook page and leave a message on the VIRTUAL RACING post and Ian will let you know how you can get involved.
So that’s your update for the time being. Please be assured that we continue to monitor the situation and in the meantime look to identify and act on areas where overhead cost savings can be achieved, with the purpose of minimising the financial impact of this awful virus and securing the future of the club.
Best wishes, stay safe,

Paul Youngs
