If you are able to do so, please consider reaching out to one or more members of the club that you think might possibly need assistance. This may be as simple as dropping off some groceries or picking up a prescription. It may just be to have a conversation, a chat via Skype or email correspondence as most of us are somewhat confined to our homes right now. This can do a lot to relieve stress and anxiety. If you need help, please reach out by phone or email. Do this by contacting any one of our club members and you can likely get the contact information for the person you are trying to reach.

Important! Precautionary Tournament cancellations & Postponements
We are working on a way for members of our chess community to have a way to reach out for help from other members of the chess community. Assistance could be picking up groceries, prescriptions or dropping off books, etc. There are a lot of "helpers" out there and there will be people in need.

We are encouraging all players to practice proper hygiene techniques recommended by the CDC, such as the frequent washing of hands, not touching their face, and respiratory etiquette when coughing or sneezing.
Players and visitors who feel under the weather should not attend the chess club meetings.
Keeping our members informed is a necessity. If the COVID-19 situation changes, please refer to this section of the page for updates related to our chess club's operations. We will post all necessary information.
