Suggested European Events
Here is a list of accessible events in Europe in the 2017/2018 season.
Competition Format and Selection - Ballot of Members
The voting has closed and the results are in. Thank you to everyone who voted and to returning officer John Mason. There was a total of 257 votes cast:
Option A - 106
Option B - 37
Option C - 114
I therefore declare that Option C is adopted.
The immediate outcome is that the committee can set the dates for the 2018 calendar.
The BVF Championships will revert to the 2016 format, 2 rounds of poules, then DE with no age categorisation. We plan to hold the event in the first weekend of March over 3 days.
The Age Group Qualifiers will be in the 2016 format, poule unique up to 24. We plan to hold the event in the first weekend of June.
The committee will be now be looking at introducing a ranking system based on a number of competitions, but not initially to be used for selection.

World Championships Selection
The squad for the 2017 World Championships in Maribor, Slovenia is here: Selection amended 30/8/2017
Membership is open to Men and Women aged 40 or over or who become 40 in the current calendar year.
This is the same as saying if you are 40 or more on December 31st then you are a vet.
Vets events such as the European or World Championships have a similar rule: your qualifying age is your age on December 31st this year.
