  1. It's something to think about, but not for this year, I'm struggling with getting this organised, and running our business after the last difficult couple of years. Maybe we can look at ideas and suggestions for a future years, it is a good idea but just too hard at the moment. Sue
  2. Rules edited and Sunday changed to Saturday everywhere (I think) Sue

  4. Grr, and I asked Richard to double check, we both missed it!!! Wow that was quick, 1st entry form received. Which file Rob, give me a hint and I'll edit it.
  5. Dam, I thought I'd changed all the dates! It's because it's the one I created ready for last year but didn't use because it got cancelled. The dates inside the file are correct, it's only the title that's wrong. Correct file name uploaded now.
  6. I have just sent out the entry form, rules and route planner to all those I have email addresses for. I'm attaching them here, but do email bcnschallenge@gmail.com if you'd like them emailed directly to you, or have any questions. Looking forward to seeing you all in June.

  7. You've beaten me to it. I was just going to start a new topic! Yes the challenge will take place on the jubilee weekend, and because the bank holiday is Thursday to Sunday the challenge will run from Friday morning to Saturday afternoon. Let me know if you want an entry form, we are just trying to finalise the end point then we'll get the forms out. email me at bcnschallenge@gmail.com Sue
  8. Yes it will definately not happen on the 23rd 24th May. It may happen later in the summer if things improve and we can find a suitable date. If not it will be cancelled for this year. Sue
  9. Yes it is sad, but looking on the bright side (which it's important to do when you can) at least I'm all organised, proof read etc ready in plenty of time for the next one. Sue
  10. I'm sure this won't surprise any of you, but after discussion with the BCN committee we have decided to hopefully postpone or possibly cancel the challenge for this year,. Depending on what happens in the next few months it might be possible to run the challenge later in the year, with changes in timing to cope with shorter days. If not then I'm sure things will have returned to normal in time for next year. Whatever normal is by then. So Alan, there will be a lot more sleeps before the challenge now. Sorry everybody. I know for those taking part on theri own boats it's no different to being at home, but we couldn't really have a do at the end, and that's a very big part of the event. Sue
  11. Explorer Cruise itinerary. Saturday 23rdWolverhampton to Titford . Sunday 24th Titford to Tipton 6 locks Monday 25thTipton to Hawne Basin 3 locks And this from the organiser We should arrive at Titford sometime in the afternoon - sorry can't be accurate but we will move aside to let any Challenger to use the locks before us. The same would apply on the way down on the Sunday morning. We are likely to start at about 9am. I will instruct the cruisers to allow Challengers free pass. So that this into your account when planning your route.
  12. Sorry about this, not spotting that the finish is not an end point is an oversight. We did get a small comittee together to think about the changes, but none of us clocked that. I'll make ammednments and re-issue. To clarify the scoring per section. The bonus counts for the whole section, so this is the correct calculation ((number of miles * boat points per mile) + (number of locks * points per lock)) * bonus or if you prefer (number of miles * boat points per mile * bonus) + (number of locks * points per lock * bonus) Which gives the same result. I'll put that on the revised planning sheet so it is clear. We'll decide exactly how to cope with the end point not being at the end of a section and make the ammendments. I'll get that out ASAP but I do need to fit it in round work and my lambing shifts . Sue
  13. Yes we can supply a larger pulley, they are not very expensive and relatively easy to fit. Probably the simplest and cheapest first stage. We usualy recomend fitting the largest oneyou realistically can. message me if you want to discuss it. Sue
  14. I (We) are in the process of updateing the scoring system for this year. Once that's done I'll publish on the BCNs website, and send to all current participants. I don;'t see any reason not to make available to everyone, it might encourage otheres to enter. Not quite sure when, most of my spare time at the moment is helping my sister with lambing and calving on her farm, I saw 3 lambs born this morning, up and feeding within 1/2 hour. very cute. It will be in plenty of time for those who've already decided their route to rethink if necessary. Sue
  15. Possibly, I couldn't possibly comment (having won it twice, and not booked in early).
