2016 UPDATE - We need your Help

Posted by Ant on 16 March 2016 at 13:26 | Comments | View Post

Hi All,

Firstly I want to apologise for keeping everyone in the dark regarding dates for this years competition. We've not gone 'troppo' on you.

There's been some dull administration reasons for the delay in announcing the dates that have been unavoidable. I really hate not being able to lock in a date in advance and I know many of you feel the same way.

All of which means we won't be having the 48 weekend during May this year. We're going to have to move it 'til later in the year and this is where we need your (and teams) help. If you could take one minute to answer some simple questions on this
SHORT QUESTIONNAIRE, it would really help us a lot in nailing down the comp for later this year.

Please SHARE this post with anyone you know who would like to be involved in 48HOURS as well.

Thank you for your undying patience,

Ant TIMPSON
