BOSSS Spring Gala. We have had confirmation that this gala will definitely be going ahead. There is the possibility that Saturday may be a shorter day than usually expected in a two day gala, but will let you know when a final decision has been made; it does depend on the number of entries overall.

Please note the change of time for one of our Diddy League fixtures. This is due to the withdrawal of some teams from the League and the need for the entire fixture list to be amended.
The last heat gala on 27th April at Middlesbrough is changed from afternoon to 9.00am for 9.35am start.
We will assume your availability remains unchanged from that stated on your reply slip to the Diddy League Gala Availability letter unless you let us know.
