From the organisers of the RiverFest qualifier at Stratford Upon Avon on 20th September

Due to new Covid-19 Governmental restrictions now in place we have had to make the following changes to the draw at Stratford-upon Avon qualifier.
The draw WILL NOT BE AT THE PUB, it will now commence at 8:15 as a ‘drive through’ draw in Stannels meadow (B section for those who have been before). For those who haven’t then please head for the entrance of Stratford-upon-Avon Racecourse (CV37 9SE). Turn as if you are actually going into the racecourse but drive down the right hand side of the railings by the entrance and down the long narrow lane, this is past the car boot entrance.

There will be a steward to direct you from 8am at this gate. Once you get to the field down the lane please park in the queue as directed by stewards. Please do not congregate in groups and stay in or by your own car if waiting to draw.
Once the draw starts you will filter down to the draw car, where you will be drawn your peg. Please have a pen ready to make a note of the peg number and section. There will be no presentation after the match, but the results will be announced on Facebook as soon as possible.
Competitors may need trolleys, waders and platforms for some sections. Sections used will be very similar to the last few years.

Draw commences: 8.15am
Fish: 11am – 4pm
