Turns out I`m "rare".
Had a serious reaction to the increased dose of amitriptyline.
Had a trip to A&E this morning, head was like a tomato !! :ROFLMAO:
I can now add steroids and antihistamines to the drug list!

Been 6 months since PR "shut".. :cry:

As one of our local Core team we have been reading the internal mails around the Re-Start Framework.
It was all going well until the full framework was released to everyone and the volunteers got to read Para 4 C

"Once we decide to open a parkrun country (or possibly region within a country) then all events in that area will be required to reopen. It will be mandatory for events to open when instructed to do so. "

Mandatory? Instructed? Excuse me parkrun I`m a VOLUNTEER.
I was not alone in that thought and they tempered the approach a bit this week saying "volunteers are going to be more involved in the process"
Then the "Rule of Six" came in....

I did think you would be fairly up to speed with it.

Almost sounds like the message got lost in translation somewhat.

I hadn't considered the Rule of Six. Is that it for now then? Seems crazy if so. If we've learnt anything this last six months, it's that exercise and fresh air ain't a bad thing.

Problem is getting the consent of the landowners especially in the current climate.
Let alone anyone wanting/willing to deal with the finish funnel.
Its spit,snot & puke at the best of times.
Then there are the other park users.................

Spring 2021 if we are lucky.

I hope you are wrong, but I fear you are right. I'm getting bored of doing the same run round our local roads, it will be nice to get back to having a bit of company.

Watched the live Q&A from HQ today.

Rule 4c from the framework was discussed.
The rule basically says if HQ decide events go ahead it is mandatory for them to be organised.:rolleyes:

Which is fine for HQ to say so, they aren`t dealing with all the extra schmizz.

Washing of lanyards & Hi-viz every week (40 of them)
Wiping of lanyard cards every week (40 of them)
Washing of tokens 500 or so.
Wiping down and storing the kit that will have to be treated as "fomite contaminated" when its collected up.
PPE etc for the Vols.
They want extra Vols, we struggle for a bare minimum.
Half our core team aren`t planning on going anywhere near it until next year, some are shielding until October 5th.
Our volunteer FB Page has gone from 120 members to 70 or so.
And then someone has to ring the City Council and ask if 500 folk can get back too it.

Realism says that`s not happening anytime soon as we stand in the foothills of the second wave:cry:
