OAA Competitions: New age ruling and requirement for parent/guardian's consent

Can I take this opportunity to remind all clubs and athletes that, in accord with the change introduced by UK-A, there is need for a parent or guardian's signature for ALL athletes aged under 18 in all events. This may represent difficulties for students studying away from their home; and as such, all athletes should allow themselves enough time to complete the necessary documentation in advance of event closing dates.
