IOBA Reunion 2021 COVID-19 UPDATE

37th Reunion: Details below

Saturday 24th July 2021 10:30>

Currently it is the Committee’s intention to proceed with the 2021 Indefatigable OBA reunion on July 24th. We will of course monitor the daily data regarding the ongoing figures of people becoming infected, that will show whether the various disease affects more people. The government has set the review date to 19th July, that is the start of the week of the reunion, which is close running… , but the infection figures the week prior will be a good indicator. Let’s hope the increase in the number of people vaccinated also curtails the one’s becoming infected.

Welsh guidance 14/07/2021;

We have to advise: The Reunion date is tentative subject to change by the English and Welsh Parliaments.

The final cut off date for booking the 2021 24th July reunion has now ended, which was on Monday 28th June 2021 as advertised.
