    Default Joys of the New BF Website

    Please beware if you have applied to BF via Sport80 to run competitions and you have included a link to your site for entries/forms even if sport80 are running your competition the new update does not show any of this information it only shows links to your venue website if you have included this.

    Just tried to look ahead and plan some comps so looked on the BF website and found it impossible to get a list by date.
    Has anyone found a way through the new site to view comps by date ?
    Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.

    A number of competitions which were on the website before the change has now disappeared.

    Organisers need to check if their's are still on as a few of mine have disappeared.

    The calendar is now directly linked to the event licencing, whereas previously the calendar booking and licencing were separate processes.

    I still canít search for future competitions.

    If people donít know what competitions are coming up they canít fence.
    Are BF trying to have less participation or more. It looks like less.

    Settle. It'll be a calendaring issue in the code somewhere or maybe the DB didn't update.

    Send them an email, I am sure it can be fixed ASAP.

    It certainly could be the case. Especially when you have the disaster where we see the loss of a large domestic event (Essex) from the season all caused by BF.
