MOAB 2020 Poster

This is an update and important information for MOAB 2020 follows…

As of the 7th July 2020 we are able to accommodate approximately 200 competitors.

Visitors are permitted but can only access the `Open’ areas these being surrounding areas, the Canteen and Bring & Buy. Visitors cannot access the competition areas.

Due to the current restrictions we are unable to accommodate Traders (as we have given priority to competitors to the limited space available), there will be no Traders at this year’s convention.

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide further updates as and if the situation with respect to restrictions changes.

We are committed to having a safe and enjoyable convention for competitors, visitors and staff. Accordingly, the following will apply…

Bring & Buy

The Bring and Buy will run this year subject to any restrictions that are in force because of Covid19.

We anticipate that we will run to our normal operating hours but we expect that we will be required to reduce the number of visitors allowed into the Bring and Buy at any one time. Entry will be initially restricted and then visitors will be allowed in as visitors leave.

We will strictly enforce the required hygiene measures when operating.

Cancellation & Refunds

In the event that the convention or an individual tournament is cancelled affected competitors will have their entry fee refunded in full.

Competitors who elect not to attend the convention need to advise the MOAB Convention Organiser as soon as possible so that their position can be made available to another would be competitor.

In this event a refund of their entry fees may be made at the discretion of the Convention Organiser.
