The Starter Round finished at the end of July. The BCPS regrets to announce that the distribution of the Postal Round has been delayed. It will be sent out but it is not possible at the moment to announce a date for this. This will mean that the closing date for the Postal Round will be later than the end of November and that the final will likely be dalayed to a date later than February 2023. We were already encountering difficulties in finding and booking a venue for the final, but it is hoped that one can be found.
Please do not send progress-chasing enquiries to either the controller or to Brian Stephenson. These people are both busy and answering such enquiries would be an extra burden. Thankyou.
