Dear delegates,

I can confirmed that the Victorian Squad has kindly given up their time slot on 24th and MBK is sharing their 10th March timeslot with the squad.

Here’s our sincere thanks to Vic Squad and MBK committee for their flexibility.

I can confirm that 24th March is the new date for the kyu grading.

Your support and understanding is appreciated. Let’s hope for milder temperatures.

Dear Delegates,

The grading on Sunday 3rd March is Rescheduled.

First of all, thank you Yakov Sensei for alerting me to the forecast update and understanding my wanting some time to explore other options before a final decision.

Today’s 4pm forecast was revised to 36 degrees for Sunday. This is also the third day of high overnight temperature too. For health reasons, the VKR has decided to reschedule.

During the period since our last announcement, I have explored hiring of alternative venue, alternative dates in March and early April. As all dates are taken for other reasons, I am currently in consultation with the other stakeholders.

In the interest of time, I am confirming that the grading this coming Sunday 3rd March IS RESCHEDULED. I will confirm the new date once availability is confirmed.

My sincerest apologies if the rescheduling has upset any of your plans. The VKTC and VKR has spent hours exploring options, checking policies. We have done our best to avoid rescheduling.

Ultimately, your health and safety comes first.

I will inform you of the revised date as soon as the stakeholders confirmed.

Kind regards,

Dear all,

Due to scheduling and timing between gradings, VKR has to proceed with the grading on 3rd March despite the high temperatures.

Please communicate with the candidates from your club to:

1. Be sensible with hydration in the days leading up to grading.
2. Be sensible with alcohol consumption in the days leading up to grading.
3. Know their own limits and inform a VKR personnel during the grading if they feel unwell.

VKR, with the VKTC, are discussing ways to make the heat more manageable.

Stay safe, I look forward to seeing you this weekend.
