SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) 17.03.06 Whitbarrow Scar CANCELLED
It is with regret that the Whitbarrow National Event has had to be cancelled. We apologize for the inconvenience that this will cause. We have tried to make as early a decision as possible whilst at the same time waiting for the weather conditions to hopefully improve.

One of the main problems (but not the only one) is that Whitbarrow Fell is still under large amounts of snow. The weather conditions at the moment although not snowing, are still very cold and the thaw is slow going which could result in snow still covering limestone rock on Sunday. This would make the conditions underfoot unsafe as there are grykes and holes in the rock.

We would like to thank all team leaders / helpers for all their efforts that have gone into the event so far.

It is our intention to hold the event at a later date and this will be conveyed on our web site once permissions / calendar dates have been sorted out.

Once again our apologies for the inconvenience caused.

Brian Jackson / Dave Hargreaves (SROC)

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) 16.03.06 Whitbarrow Scar
The National Event on Whitbarrow Scar on Sunday 19th March may have to be cancelled due to adverse weather conditions.

This particular area of Cumbria has suffered unusually high snowfall over the weekend, and again on Monday evening. As of Wednesday evening the car parking field is under 3 inches of snow and the fell top is under 6 inches of snow.

As it stands the event cannot proceed. The forecast for the next few days remains dry but with cold temperatures. We need the snow to thaw, the limestone fell to be free of snow on top of the rock and the car parking field to dry out.

There will be a further inspection on Friday when we intend to make a decision. The decision will be posted on the BOF website and this website.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) 04.03.06 SROC National Event, Whitbarrow Scar - Sunday 19 March 2006
Entries have now closed. We have continued to take entries since the closing day of 27 February at the surcharged rate but stopped taking any further entries today, 4th March.

The event has proved very popular and we are approaching 1200 entries. Some courses are full and any more entries will put more strain on the car parking, particularly in bad weather conditions.  A limited number of non - technical Colour Coded courses are available on the day White, Yellow, Orange Light Green and Red.

We are sorry to have to disappoint anyone who had hoped to make a late entry. Thank you for your interest, and we hope that you will take the opportunity to take part in another SROC event soon.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) 04.03.06 On-line entries on 27 February Did we over charge you?
Apologies to anyone who entered on 27 February and paid at the higher rate of (13 seniors, 5.50 Juniors ). We changed the fee back to 11 later in the day. If you were overcharged then please come to the Enquiries Tent at the event and inform the team of your details (including entry no.) and we will refund the extra that you paid.
