Fab Feb Update

We have received a few questions so here is an update. The situation has not changed significantly since the last report on SEN namely that;

  • No advance entries will be taken for 2021.
  • The MaxMen contest will be held at a slightly lower key.  This is similar to the 2 big California Fall events , the Sierra Cup and Kotuku Cup. These were held with reasonable attendance from California and other western states but there was no mid-west or eastern states and no international participation.  This contest is on the President’s Day weekend  12 to 15 February but the exact schedule has not been announced.
  • The F1E events will be held.
  • There is no final decision on the format of the North American , Ike and Kiwi Events.
  • There is no decision yet from the CIAM on World Cups for 2021.
  • There appears to be an increase in Covid cases in most places where our participants come from.  It is kind of obvious but there are 2 criteria for people taking part and this applies to both organizers and contestants – You have to be able to get to the events, no constraints on travel and availability of (air) travel and accommodation, that is beyond the individual’s control. Then secondly you need to feel comfortable making the trip and taking part in the event, that is a personal choice.
