Organisers of Oban’s Provincial Mod have pencilled in June 5 for this year’s virtual version of the event, which usually attracts hundreds of entries.
Treasurer Margaret Farmer said planning is still in the very early stages but committee members wanted to tell people to keep the date just in case it can go ahead.
‘We want to keep it on the calendar if we possibly can. The syllabus will have to be reduced but more information will follow,’ said Mrs Farmer.
Last year’s Mod in the town was cancelled completely because of Covid.
The closing date for 2021 entries, to be sent electronically via videos to be judged, will be April 30.
