The Chairman has sent out the following message over email to all club members regarding the new club kit:
Regretfully, despite original assurances that the new kit would be delivered in time for people to wear it proudly on this year?s O2e Champagne Supernova, I must now inform you that this will not be the case.
The committee were recently informed that there was a risk this may happen and were told by the suppliers that we would have to pay a considerable early delivery premium to eliminate that risk. We decided that, as we had already gone for a more expensive option to ensure quality, this would make the items unacceptably expensive. We therefore went with the standard turn-around deal in the hope that this would still arrive in time.
Recent communications with the supplier make it clear that this is not going to happen. We will communicate more news when we have it.
With sincere apologies (but also with confidence that when it arrives it will be top quality kit),
David Plews (Chairman) (pp BRC Committee)
