Club Closure Update

Hope everyone is doing alright! What a crazy time this is.

Here is an update on what is going on with the club.

Unfortunately, it does not appear that we will be able to resume our meetings for some time. Of course, it will depend on when the threat from the virus is under control, the stay-at-home order is lifted and the Goebel Center is reopened. Right now, that is very tentatively set for the beginning of May, but the closure will likely last into the summer and possibly beyond.

Due to this, I have made the decision to declare our 2020 Late Winter Swiss tournament completed as it stands. (We had played four out of five rounds, with the fifth round scheduled for Mon, Mar 23). Click here for the US Chess rating report, and click here for final prizewinners and standings.

 

I know it is a disappointment and definitely unprecedented to have to call a tournament off without finishing it, but this situation is obviously out of our control.

If you came in 1st, 2nd or 3rd place, we will distribute the prizes at the club when we resume.

When the club reopens we will begin a new tournament, which will likely be our 2020 Club Championship (the Club Championship tournament normally runs about April-June).

I will continue to post updates if we gain any new information.
