Club member Neil Ashworth, who lives in North Wales, won the BBMF Experience Day as the Club ballot prize for February 2020; it was originally scheduled to take place in June 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic and national lock-down prevented that from happening, so the prize was carried over into 2021 and the Experience Day eventually happened on Sunday 19th September some 15 months after originally planned.
