South London Warlords A message from the Chairman and President
Dear members I hope the New Year finds you and yours safe and well. Much as I hoped we could be speaking in person, it seems we are still some way and several injections away from that moment, and so the committee wish to update you on the next steps for the club and Salute. These next steps have been worked through by a small group supporting me as chairman and President and agreed by the whole of your committee. Club Nights We are of course dependent on what government rules will allow and when. We are constantly in touch with the Church Hall authorities and as soon as Monday nights can resume, rest assured that they will. We will seek to have an AGM as soon as circumstance and rules allow. Salute 2021 As you know have previously publicised the date of the next Salute as being 10th April 2021. Our approach has always been that we would hold to that date until Excel, in interpreting government rules, tell us it is no longer feasible and then they advise us on how they will accommodate Salute on another date. We have now received that advice and accordingly we are formally postponing Salute until Saturday 27th November 2021. Excel have offered us this later date at no extra cost to us. We remain ready to react to any and all changing circumstances, and be assured we have discussed other scenarios and variations. We are totally committed to putting on the show and are definitely in a position do so on 27th November as long as Excel and government rules allow. We of course remain in close contact with Excel. We will now be rapidly advising and consulting with both traders and games organisers who were booked in for the postponed show. We will then confirm the date to the wider world. It would be appreciated if members could allow the committee to proceed with release of information in this order and not share outside the club yet to avoid confused messages. I can also reassure members that thanks to good work by my Cobra group and the full committee the club finances are robust, whatever happens in 2021, and the Warlords will certainly live on!
