It is time again! The clocks are changing from 27th to 28th October 2018 which means we are also changing our start times (UTC+0) that our events are still starting for everybody at the same time locally. Short explanation about Daylight saving time:

"Daylight saving time (DST) or summer time is the practice of advancing clocks during summer months by one hour so that evening daylight lasts an hour longer, while sacrificing normal sunrise times. Typically, regions with summer time adjust clocks forward one hour close to the start of spring and adjust them backward in the autumn to standard time."

All in all here is an example how the times are "changing":
Before DST: 18:00 (UTC+0) was 19:00 local in UK and 20:00 local Germany.
After DST: 19:00 (UTC+0) is still 19:00 local in UK and 20:00 local Germany.

We hope everything is understandable but do not hesitate to ask questions here in the thread if something is unclear :)

Unfortunately you'll be seeing less of me. Races will now start at 21:30 local time, which is just a tad too late during the week.

Would more weekend events be possible? I understand Saturdays are generally rF and iR event days, but RSR ranked events on a Saturday would be much more accessible. Not every weekend, but now and then would be nice. :)
