*Update 5th July 2020*
After considerable deliberation in the past weeks and months, I’ve taken the decision to postpone UKTC VII (scheduled for January 2021) for one year.
UKTC VII will be back in mid January 2022. I will provide a confirmed date asap when I’m able.
At this precise moment holding an event like UKTC would be acting against government policy re covid19. I understand those restrictions may be relaxed as the winter approaches, though there is also the possibility of renewed lockdown rules e.g. through increased risk to vulnerable people in winter, or a possible second wave.
All of which means there will be considerable uncertainty about the event. Restrictions/uncertainties about foreign travel are a big factor too.
A distanced, mask wearing event might be achievable in theory. Though it would introduce significant logistical problems. And it wouldn’t feel right to be honest.
The financial model with a large university event is quite precarious and if the event didn’t hit the 200 or so players expected then it could leave us (me!) considerably out of pocket.
In sum, the time just isn’t right. So I look forward to getting UKTC back on the road in 2022.
Sad to have had to take this step. But I think it’s the right choice.
Take care all and see you soon.
