The following Establishments would appear not to have responded to our request for an explanation of the potential infringements, which were e mailed to the TT17 Team Managers in early August. Given the holidays it is possible that the e mail was overlooked or the TM has changed. However, to inform us of an explanation and action intended, we need a response in the next 7 days. Otherwise there is a risk that an entry into TT18 will not be accepted. Please e mail your response or request a further copy of the e mail to SWHQ-TenTors-MAILBOX@mod.uk.

Responses to our e mail to specific Ten Tors Challenge (TTC) Team Managers (TMs) requesting a response to potential infringements during Ten Tors 17 are pouring in now that schools have re-opened. However, only about a third of the responses have arrived, as yet. Please do reply, as requested, by midnight 11 Sep. However, we recognise that some of the TMs many have changed and that a few of the e mails might not have reached you. Please be aware that we will not select teams from Establishments that have not responded. So, to help TMs, we will indicate with PI in the Query column of the TTC Entries List those Establishments entering teams that have not answered our query. Please watch out for this and take immediate action. Thank you to the vast majority of those TMs who have responded for both investigating the issue and also describing the measures they intend to take to avoid a repetition. Similarly, we have learnt from the responses and will feed back to you our intended actions at the Team Managers Briefing on Sat 14 Oct 17 at Okehampton Camp. Please make sure the date is in your diary.

Entries are building up. Thank you to the early birds who at midday Fri 8 Sep have entered 184 TT teams and 189 Jubilee Challenge individuals/team members. Team Managers, please don't leave entering to the last moment. Checking now that you can log in through the TM Dashboard will prevent a last minute panic. Five green ticks will cause your entry to appear on the list of entries. Remember, you can always change the detail before 2359 hours on 26 Sep 17 but we can't select your teams if you don't apply by the deadline.
