The new overall congress manager is Tim Wall, while Stephen Burton remains in post as treasurer.† Brent Kitson is unable to continue with any major input, though he remains in an advisory capacity.


Steve Forbes used to do the website and check entrantsí grades/ratings, but cannot take on those tasks now, so Brent has procured the services of Nigel Hepworth to provide a new website which is at http://yorc.uk/, though this is at present awaiting construction.† Nigel looks like also doing the rating-checking job too.


Provision of an on-line entry facility is planned.
