British & JK Relays - Early Closing Dates

Having ensured that an entry form was included in the last BOK News for the JK relays, I'm afraid we failed to notice that the British relays, to be held in the New Forest on 1st March, are also operating a phased entry, with the first closing date even earlier than the JK. So if you want to enter the British relays at the least expensive price, you must return an entry form to your Klub captains by Friday 9th January. An entry form for both the JK and British relays is available from the Hot Links on this website. Please note the different closing dates and prices for each event - we recommend that you submit your forms as soon as possible. Please also spread the word to those who may not have seen this.

New BOK Tops now Available

Jackie Hallett writes:
If you are stuck for an idea for Christmas here is your answer. We now have a new supply of BOK tops. These range in sizes from extra small to extra, extra large. Since first ordering these tops the prices have doubled, and together with a poor exchange rate, a significant increase in price has had to be made with Adults at £35.00 and children at £25.00. We also have trousers in sizes from small to extra, extra large at a cost of £16.00. We will have the tops at all local events, just look out for our camper van.
