No Warwick in 2020

I have been involved, for many years, working at, and subsequently running, the PAGB’s best attended live event at Warwick University and, as far as I am aware, this is the first ever to be cancelled.

Up to the middle of April the Arts Centre was closed until mid-May and when I contacted them on the 20th April that was still the case. However, on the 22nd April I received an email informing me that the decision had been made to extend the closure until mid-August and they would have to cancel our booking for the 11th July.

A sad day for the Inter-Club PDI Championship, as we already had the 8 Finalists from 2019 joining the battle, plus 12 Federations who had already nominated their 2 clubs, with a few days still to go to the closing date.

I then had to tell those 32 Clubs, the 3 judges and the PAGB Executive that our booking was cancelled. The Sponsors were also informed and, as you can imagine, they are very disappointed, especially after the Photography Show did not happen in March.

A light hearted comment from one club, who said that it was “obviously our turn to win and I should get the trophy engraved and send it to us!” Another club, who had qualified through their Federation for the first time, are very disappointed that they will miss their chance to appear on the Warwick Competitors list to do battle with all the other clubs.

We are working on a date for 2021. See you then.

Peter W Cheetham HonPAGB, Chair – PDI Championship Organising Committee.
