No chess for Tuesday 19th

Steven got covid, and Casey is a close COVID contact and therefore also cannot attend the club this week. Therefore, the match with Invercargill will take place with HBCC players playing from home. Casey has emailed the players at our end to advice this.
There will be no chess this tuesday at the hall, as neither myself, Casey nor Mark are able to attend. We will definitely be back on 26 April for start of the Hobsons Bay Cup.
Thanks to the players who sent me well wishes. I am feeling completely over the symptoms, and looking forward to the start of the Hobsons Bay Cup.
We will advise the results of the match vs Invercargill later in the week.
Regards Steve
