As most of you already know the Beds League and the schedule for the Club’s Div 1 and Div 2 are both suspended (but see below) and the County Individual has been cancelled. We shall keep the club tournaments open for continuation, hoping they can eventually be completed. It is obviously impossible currently to make predictions about resumption.
However, the North End Club remains open at present. Members will still be able to play serious or casual games there, including Div 1, Div 2 and Rapid Play games, if having considered the Government’s advice they consider it acceptable to do so. The cabinet key should be available from the bar – ring Peter Gill if there is any problem. If you are planning to go it would be wise to check that you won’t be on your own by arranging an opponent or announcing your intention. Meanwhile here’s wishing you all the best of health and perhaps you might play some more online chess!
