British Pointing gets go-ahead for early April resumption

Point-to-Pointing in Britain is set to resume at the beginning of April after the English government’s announcement of a four-step plan to bring the country out of lockdown.
 
In a statement released on Tuesday, Peter Wright, the Chief Executive of the Point-to-Point Authority stated:
“Following the Prime Minister’s Announcement yesterday, point to pointing is planning to restart in week commencing March 29.

“We are working hard to create a new fixture list which reflects the situation, and hope to have one available by the end of this week – there are no shortage of volunteers. 

“I realise that this will be disappointing news for some as we are inherently safe with very low densities, no fomites and no ventilation problems - apart from it sometimes being too windy. However, we do not operate in a bubble, and we have to be on the same page as other amateur sports. 

“This will still leave 11-12 weeks of the season. I know that many of you will be concerned about the going, but I note that one wet year in the last decade had fixtures with a hundred runners in June. Furthermore, there are several courses out there which traditionally have good going late in the season.

“In terms of the paying public and Owners, the government position is not totally clear. However, I am afraid that no-one other than participants will be able to attend up until April 12 at the least. We will open it up as soon as we can.”
