I thought we were already in Europe Sam, at least geographically.

I stand corrected Tim 🙂 

How about "That's strange, because we are hoping to be allowed into Europe mainland by then! 😉

I think the thing I've missed the most over the last 12 months has been some European travel.

...and the way they were talking today.....the May breakdate may be extended and foreign travel could be a no no for a long time

Due to the uncertainties of the Covid crisis and Britain after Brexit being "a jangada de pedra" 🙄 we sadly have to retire form the event. 

A "stone raft"?! 🤔

Who doesn’t love a bit of merch?!

we’ve got some Border Raiders 2021 polo shirts for sale, £15 each.

If you’d like one (or two) please send an email to shirt2021@theborderraiders.uk

(yes, we have our own domain name!) and we’ll send you payment details.

you can collect them at the start venue on the Friday night 

Sizing is as the chart attached. Colour is light blue though we reserve the right to change that if the supplier turns around and says they’ve run out, hopefully not though.

Deadline for orders is 25th June

Hi

I'll be ordering one of those😉

I do have a question relating to the logo. I understand the principle that the logo consists of two flags because the run crosses from England into Scotland and then back into England. So I see why the Scottish flag is used, but why is the Union Jack (the UK flag) used rather than the English flag (cross of St George)? If the Union Jack is used then the Scottish flag should be removed as the Union Jack covers both sides of the border as both nations form part of the UK. 

Please note it is not my intention to start a political debate!

Regards

Bruce

No, not true in any way. Sadly, though, the "St George's Cross" flag has been hijacked by some seriously racist (or at least highly xenophobic) groups and these days is rarely used by anyone else except football thugs fans. Which is ironic as St George was Turkish.

I guess you are right Rob, just a great shame though. Scots are allowed as well as the Welsh and a lot of them hate the English :) :)

No I don’t understand much about it either, but my wife does!

I’ll try and post some things on the run up to the event and you can tag your photos on the day, don’t ask me how, but you can ask Sarah on the day!!
