I think we are going to have to get used to this kind of news..... And knowing the steam packet, I bet they try and avoid refunds, but I hope I am wrong.


At this rate the only holidays that won't be cancelled will be our OP storm meetings, but we will all have to endorse the social distancing rules and not ride closer than 3m to each other.

Might be a good time to add the NC500 onto the OP storm Scotland trip, as there will be a lot less tourists up there getting in the way

I received an email from easyjet yesterday, and P and O. ferries today, regarding cancellations or changes to booked travel.
Easyjet were offering an opportunity to defer travel to a later date and P and O are offering EITHER a refund or credit note if you decide not to travel.
I'd expect something similar from steam packet if it's cancelled.
Last time I looked, Iom has no cases of the disease, so might be a good place to hide from it for a few weeks.
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.

We can just sleep with our helmets on and the visor down in the bunkhouse.

If that continues That might be a good excuse to keep us all out 8O .
I'm just hoping the worst of it will be over by then and people will be more used to dealing with it and carrying on a little closer to normality

I was due to be in Rome as of Friday for the 6 nations game. Alitalia e-mailed last Tuesday cancelling the flights, but with no mention of refunds. I have attempted to call them and e-mail with no response.
The RFU have said that because the game is postponed and not cancelled they won’t act until a new date is announced, and then ,if we wish, they will attempt to sell them for us.

Anyway going to a nice hotel in Sudbury today instead!

TT2020 cancelled

https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of- ... cancelled/

This year's TT has been cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic, the chief minister has confirmed.

Howard Quayle made the announcement at a special media conference which started just after 5pm.

The measures are as follows:

- Anyone arriving in the Isle of Man from 11.59pm tomorrow (Tuesday, 17 March) will be required to take immediate action:
Those displaying symptoms of coronavirus will be required to self-isolate for at least 14 days
Those not displaying symptoms of coronavirus will be required to self-isolate for at least 14 days, to eliminate the possibility they are carrying infection


- Those aged 70 and over or pregnant or have underlying health conditions are strongly advised to take extra care to prevent the possibility of being infected. More guidance will be issued shortly
- The 2020 Isle of Man TT is cancelled to protect the Island’s critical care services
- Schools will remain open
- Testing for coronavirus in the community will be stepped up with immediate effect
- Due to the measures being introduced today, at this stage government will not be placing any restriction on public gatherings
- The government will be taking necessary steps to postpone both the 2020 local authority general elections and the Douglas South by-election until further notice
- A package of measures will be introduced by the Treasury to support the Island’s workforce and protect the economy

In addition, both the Local Authority General Election and the Douglas South by-election have been postponed.
It may be that your whole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
