The BMC have changed the Open Youth Event in Liverpool on Dec 9th from a pilot event to Round 1 of the Youth Bouldering Championships:

The first round was due to be in May so spread the word to those who might not be aware of this sudden and unexplained change.

In reply to Paul Twomey:

hi guys, the reason we changed the schedule of rounds is due to the fact that in the Dec open youth events we have always made the competitors compete in the categories they will compete in the following year, to allow the selection committee to make their selection for the next years team, comparing climbers in the same categories etc.

We realised that if we started the series in may next year, then the competitors would all jump up a category 2/3rds of the way through the series, which obviously would not work, so we had to bring it forward to start the series in December not May.

Let me know if anyone has any questions.

Cheers

Rob Adie
