The posting of full reports from domestic events at District level and above staged in the UK are encouraged, with a URL pointer for full results. Reports from major competitions outside of the UK in which official UK teams are participating, such as European/World Championships and Olympic/Commonwealth Games, are welcome.

Meet organisers of other Open events, including Designated meets, Open Meets, Graded Meets and County Championships, are encouraged to post summary reports, with a URL pointer for full results.

In addition, general discussion will take place relating to the wider aspects of the sport - embracing such topics as training methods, the Olympic movement, drugs and cheating, etc.
