We had to cancel the Morocco meet in 2020 due to Covid restrictions that required quarantine when returning to the UK. The relaxation of restrictions this summer meant it was looking optimistic that we would get back in November 2021. However, late in October Morocco banned flights form the UK due to the high infection rates here, so we were stopped again. Last year plan B (and C and D!) also failed but this time it worked and 6 of us headed out for two weeks around Leonidio in Greece.
