Brian FarrenAug 8 2020, 9:45amHi. Just wondering will there be a short course available? Tks.
Gerry McGuinnessAug 24 2020, 3:33pmHi, trying to enter Bav Challenge 1. Is it available yet or is it a problem at by my end. Regards
Derek HayAug 24 2020, 4:13pmI'm also having trouble entering the Nav challenge, I think there may be issues with the site or it may not have been uploaded yet. rgds, Derek.
John BellAug 24 2020, 4:31pmUnfortunately this event and all other events until after 13th September have been cancelled. :-(

Derek HayAug 27 2020, 6:59pmThanks for the update John... Does anyone know if or where I would be able to obtain the grid locations from previous Nav challenges? Any help is greatly appreciated
Mick HanneyAug 27 2020, 8:01pmGrid refs for Navs 1 and 3 from last year are in their individual event forum threads. Look up Events, 2019, and search for each Nav and the forum chat will be associated.
