RESCHEDULED - The BIG FAT South-West Bass Bash 2020!! - Sunday 11th October, 2020

Recommended Posts

My initial reaction was "ah feck it, I'm probably going to catch the bloody thing sooner or later anyway, let's do it"... but with my boringly sensible and slightly less rock'n'roll head on, I think postponement may be the thing to do. As others have said, I will gladly contribute if you're going to end up out of pocket.

Well, I’ve just been sent home from work, on full pay, for potentially a couple of weeks as I’m in the “at risk” category!!!

I'm on the fence with this but I am also in daily contact with 7-9 jobs a day in social housing so my risk factor is high and my wife is on a lot of immune suppressants, on balance I think a postponement is probably the best thing but who really knows it is still a flue virus nothing more, but those with breathing or immune issues are always at risk.

As a diabetic I’m firmly in the ‘at risk’ category and going nowhere until we are over the ‘peak’.

Heart says "let's do it". But mind says postpone. And mind has to win in this case, as I may be alright if I catch it, but others may have serious complications if I pass it to them.

I'm happy to pay now whatever needs to, and we'll keep in touch here as to when it's safer to meet.

@Frank Blank risk schmisk get your derrière over here and no more excuses.

Excuses? Common sense I think would be a more apt description. Much as I love the SWBB I think that very common sense will be prevailing in my case.

But but, there's so much more at stake here

Thanks for your replies and generous offers re the financial implications.  I'll let this run over the weekend.

Yikes, I hadn't thought of that. I'm type 2 and only just, but even so I guess that still puts me 'at risk'..?

I'm type 2 as well but as such our condition is (hopefully) under control with drugs so our risk of contracting it is similar to those without but there are possible complications if we do contract it. Personally I'm just not taking any risks whatsoever.

I think I'm probably at risk too, have had multiple instances of Pneumonia and I also have an auto immune disorder. I'm still not sure that I should be worried though.

I get the feeling that we're only a week or so away from a formal "Lockdown" so the postponement decision may well be made for us by the Government.

If so @scrumpymike you may be able to be in a better position to discuss the options with the hall trustees.

My sources say two things, If I, a chronic asthmatic that has had several bouts of pneumonia ( so callde co-morbidities) were in need of a respirator as was an otherwise fit 22 yera old and only one was available, guess who would not get it... moi.

Secondly, all the advice was given because there are no powers to make us do something. That can (and will) change as an emergency bill passes. I predict it will be in place by next weekend.

I think my £10 is already paid so hopefully that and others pre-payment will cover some of the cost. When we reschedule it should be a whole new event. Mike should not be out of pocket.

I think postponement is the best option, looking at what has happened in Italy and Spain. You can have this virus and be spreading it to others for 5 days before you even get any symptoms. It would be difficult to keep all the basses and gear clean throughout the day not to mention sharing the food.  Happy to help cover costs if applicable.
