Big 50 Championships Location Annoucement

After a great deal of work, we are thrilled to announce that the Championships this year will be at Belvoir Castle, Grantham. We have secured the contract for the Castle grounds itself, and by kind permission of the estate we have a 45 acre field specifically for our special event this year. Please note that ENTRY DOES NOT OPEN FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIPS UNTIL LATER IN THE YEAR. This is the location announcement only, to allow further planning of this historic year's event. Please do not contact champs admin with questions, there will be further announcements later this month. As this is a special year, we have a number of planned activities, and as long as all plans continue to go smoothly, we intend to have hot food available and live music with other events on the Saturday evening. Saturday evening will be an evening of celebration for the NFAS 50th Birthday. In addition, to allow as many members to attend as possible, and to give as many members access to the Saturday evenings activities, the committee are proud to announce that this year, camping at the event will be completely free. Camping will be restricted to members and immediate family only. Lots more exciting announcements to come, only 4 months to go!

Phishing/Scam email regarding VIP membership

Further to the phishing/scam emails being received by members, we don't believe the membership database has been breached, as a number of recipient email addresses are not stored in the membership database. As far as we can tell, it is only email addresses that have been accessed and the breach could have come from a number of sources, and is currently impossible to track down. The NFAS will never ask for money through links in emails. Importantly no payment/bank details are at risk as these are processed by WorldPay - the NFAS has never stored or processed online payments. Just like phishing/scam emails from banks, or links in 'Messenger' or 'WhatsApp', please do not click on anything and ignore and delete.
