All British Day

Dear All British Day Entrant,

Whilst the Covid-19 pandemic still causes havoc across the world, closer to home it has been refreshing to see the infection numbers drop in Victoria and some state borders opening. I am sure we are all looking forward to the talented scientists across the globe finding a solution to rid us of this most brutal virus. 
In my last newsletter I advised that we would be open for registrations this year and would confirm the status of All British Day 2021 by November 30. As a result of our research into what is required for us to hold an event that attracts around 3000 plus people, and meets SA Health Covid-19 criteria, our November deadline has been brought forward. We have considered the time required for us to prepare the necessary extensive Covid Management Plan for SA Health, and have factored in the significant review of logistics and costs involved to run the event.
As the committee is entirely made up of volunteers and our resources are finite both in manpower and financially, we regrettably must advise it is simply not feasible for us to host All British Day next February 2021, considering all the obligations we would be required to undertake. As a result, we will not be sending out invitations nor opening the website for registrations.
By February, the Covid Management plan may be a lot less involved, but we have to assess the facts and act as they are now.   it is possible that some of the current Covid management policies may become a part of every event, but only time will tell.
We are disappointed that we have had to make this decision, but feel it is the only responsible course of action open to us. We have no desire to take unnecessary risks with the health of those attending ABD or running a compromised event just for the sake it. We do hope you will understand why we have had to make this decision. We will, in the absence of ABD 2021 still make donations to the CFS and other service groups that benefit from ABD.
Essentially ABD 2022 will be ABD 2021 plus 12 months. February 2022 will still be featuring both British Working Wheels and the E Type Jaguar celebration. We expect to open registrations on October 1, 2021, for ABD 2022 and plan to keep the registration fee unchanged.
However it is not all bad news and despite the COVID-19 constraints the ABD Committee is extremely hopeful we can come up with an alternative approach to enable you to still exercise or display your vehicles on February 14, 2021. We will be having another meeting in November and hopefully by then, the Covid rules may have changed, allowing us to suggest an alternative, in the absence of ABD 2021, to the many clubs and organizations that make up and support ABD. Save the date and watch this space!
Kind Regards
Jamie Sandford-Morgan
