/ Range west briefing dates?
was just wondering if anyone knows if there have been any briefing dates announced for 2020 yet?
Bump as I am also interested
These always seem to be announced later than people would like!
The first one tends to be on Good Friday if that helps?
Apologies for the delay in getting this information out. I was waiting to get a response from the MoD to a request we made for an extra briefing in August, to allow those that can't make the early dates to take advantage of the month long non-firing period throughout August.
Anyway the good news is that they have now got back to me and have added a briefing day for Saturday August 1st. The Range West briefing dates for 2020 are listed below. The evening ones are all on Thursdays and the morning ones all on Saturdays, except for the Bank holiday/Good Friday one. There will be a more comprehensive article on the BMC website and in Summit soon.

As always all the briefings are at Castlemartin Army Camp. Please turn up a few minutes early to allow time to pass through the security gate, etc.
In addition, the non-firing days for 2020 are April 4th to April 19th and there is no firing at all on any days in August, which means access to everyone to climb on Range East and to briefed climbers only to Range West at all times for those dates.
