UKCAA & COVID-19


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are suspending the 2020 UKCAA events programme indefinitely for the following reasons:

1. We are a responsible group and put the health of our members foremost.

2. We don't want to put people under pressure to travel and attend

3. We don't want members to feel they may be missing out if we do run events and they choose not to or are unable to attend

4. We remove the risk of cross contamination with host club members and any obligation the club may feel to host an event.

We will restart the programme when it is deemed safe to do so

I don't want to put an end date as we really don't know when it will end, we will follow Government advice.

We will suspend further membership renewals for this year and roll forward anyone who has already renewed until 28 Feb 2022. Any members not renewed this year will have their membership rolled forward until 28 February 2021, new members will have their membership extended until 28 February 2022. If your membership has lapsed and you wish to leave the UKCAA, pleas let me know and I will remove you from the database.

We are really sorry about this, we hope the programme will resume some time during this year but it is more important that the health and well being of our members is maintained.

Please assume that events are OFF (irrespective of what you may see in BMFA News or RCM&E) unless you receive a notification from me to the contrary.
