For the Brits that are hoping to gain grants from the Army Sports Lottery: BLUF - Last paragraph! Please see below the latest update from the Army Sport Control Board in respect of Covid-19 UPDATE 8 – LOC FRAGO 20-247 to PROJECT PHOENIX OpO 20-239: CANCELLATION OF ARMY OVERSEAS ACTIVITY (INCL OSVs) TO 30 SEP 20 Reference: A. LOC LOC_FRAGO_20-247 dated 15 May 20. In consultation with the MOD, PJHQ and Formations (incl ASCB), all Army overseas activity planned to commence up to 30 Sep 20 inclusive has been reviewed by the LOC. The Army will continue to minimise overseas activity in accordance with Pj PHOENIX direction; all activity that does not contribute to operations, VHR, overseas resilience, or is deemed non-essential to international engagement is to be cancelled. Included within this review are Overseas Sports Visits (OSVs). Acknowledging that the COVID-19 pandemic will not be a short-term issue, nor will its impact be equally reflected across the globe, Reference A confirms that all previously authorised OSVs between 1 Jul and 30 Sep are to be de-authorised. Any additional applications for OSVs, submitted to ASCB that are due to commence during the period 1 Jul to 30 Sep, will not be authorised whilst LOC FRAGO 20-247 remains in force. Army sports should remain cautious when looking to organise any OSVs from 1 Oct to 31 Dec 20. In the current COVID-19 environment, where discretional overseas travel (which includes OSVs) is currently cancelled, OSV organisers are advised not to commit any funding to tour operators or travel companies/airlines etc. prior to receiving authority from ASCB and advice from the ASL on any potential ASL grant. See 2019DIN 10-001 (Army OSV and OTC) and 2019DIN10-015 (Army Sport Lottery) on the Publications section of the ASCB website. Organisers who commit funds against an OSV prior to receiving authorisation from ASCB do so at their own risk. At a future date, LOC will be conducting a further series of estimates to review Army overseas activity from 1 Oct to 31 Dec 20.

Hi folks, some of you will know me from the last 2years of the yomp. I've got to say that I'm humbled by the support and camaraderie of all who have been part of this amazing event. Next year starting May the 16th, I will be doing 4 consecutive loops of the cateran trail(220 miles) hopefully within 90 hours. The first loop is the cateran ultra marathon and then I'll just keep going 😁😂. I'm looking for some of you to help with support, on the ground and also promotion of the event, I'll be raising money for the AFF so let's get as much exposure as possible! Lots to plan and plenty training but I'll do it with your help. Wether it be a kind word of encouragement or helping me change my socks😂 ever tiny thing will get me closer to the finish line 💪. Cheers Neil
That's 9 of a Team of 10 from both 3 and 7 SCOTS registered for the 44th Marine Corps Marathon #MCM trip to Washington D.C. USA. Supporting the Allied Forces Foundation #AFF for the fourth year.

Appalachian Yomp (AY) 2020 completed and was a amazing success. Thank you to all our support staff, sponsors and wounded warriors who bravely took on the challenge 59 miles on the Appalachian Trail. The challenge is not for the faint hearted and puts you through some physical and mental obstacles during the time on the trail. When completed the AY at any stage you feel you and your fellow Yomps have accomplished a herculean achievement. So well done all you Yompers and hope to see you again next year October 2-3, 2021.
