The club reopened on July 30, and has been running without any problems. So we will continue with social chess, and a flat fee of $5 per night, until the end of August. Because of the ongoing pandemic, the club will only be open until about 10pm each night.
Starting on September 3, we will resume ACF-rated games with the four round Lasker Memorial, played at 60 mins plus 20 secs each (Bronstein increment). The seven round Club Championship will then follow on October 1 (as scheduled). It will be played at 60 mins plus 10 secs each (Fischer).
Before coming to the club, please read the documents below: the COVID SAFE Plan for Brisbane Chess Club.doc and the QCBC Covid 19 Health Questionnaire.pdf. Anyone attending the club will be required to have completed the Health Questionnaire before they attend for the first time. And attendees will have their temperature taken every night they attend. So, if possible, please print out and complete the Health Questionnaire before you come, and bring it with you on your first night.
