If you haven't returned your bib...
It's late - it should have been
back by 30th November. However, your Bib Officer will probably still
accept it if you hurry up. Please get it back as soon as possible.
Use the sort of envelope you can put
an A4 page in unfolded
Undo the buckles and fold the bib so as
to avoid fat bits
Put at least £1.17 on it in postage
Include a (small) stamped addressed
envelope for your bib voucher.
Too big an envelope and it won't be a "large letter"; too small an
envelope and you'll have to fold the bib so many times it will be
too thick for a "large letter".
