We are excited to be able to host the Lismore Samson Fitness Challenge on March 5-6.
We have made adjustments to the Samson to be in line with current restrictions.
At this stage the following changes have been implemented:
• There are only a maximum of 100 teams at this stage
• At this stage there will be no spectators allowed at the event
• Each team will be able to nominate and register one support person, who will be allowed on the oval to encourage the team
• The Samson and Samson Solo will be going ahead.
• At this stage, Teen Spirit and Samson Kids are not able to go ahead, and there will be changes to the afterparty, however this may change as restrictions change
For the Samson Event we ask all staff, volunteers and participants the following:
Do not attend if you have traveled overseas within the last 14 days of the event
Do not attend if you have been in a postcode that has been declared a hotspot within the last 14 days of the Samson
Do not attend if you have had or you are aware of close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with or suspected of having COVID-19 or has been instructed to self-isolate.
Do not attend of you are feeling unwell or have flu like symptoms.
Please note as part of the registration all participants will be informed of these requirements and all volunteers will be informed prior to volunteering on the day.
Teams and volunteers will be briefed closer to the event via email regarding COVID requirements.
Please watch for announcements via the facebook group.
We appreciate everyone being so supportive during this time as we do know how hard it has been this year.
Thank you for all your support.
