MCCU county championships OTB 2021/22

MCCU Covid-19 precautions
22. a. It is the policy of the MCCU that appropriate face coverings (masks or visors) must be worn during MCCU county matches, unless a player has a medical exemption;
b. Temperature checks are not required
c. It is a recommendation of the MCCU that all players eligible for vaccination should be double-vaccinated. The MCCU will not seek confirmation of vaccination status. Players who do not want to play an unvaccinated opponent should take this into account in deciding whether to play for their county.
d. Hand sanitizers must be readily available at each venue; there will be no handshakes;
e. Home counties (or both counties in a neutral venue) should use their best endeavours to space tables well apart to support social distancing
f. If any player exhibits symptoms or has a positive test result up to 10 days prior to a match, they must not attend the match. Non-compliance will lead to the relevant board being defaulted.
g. All players must agree that if they develop symptoms or test positive within 7 days after participating in a match, the captains of both teams should be notified immediately, to enable them to notify all participants. The anonymity of any player testing positive must be protected.
h. All players must be made aware that they are subject to, and must familiarise themselves with, HMG guidance https://www.gov.uk/guidance/covid-19-co ... -cannot-do

Does anyone else think the Under 1650 competition should be 12 players to bring it into line with what the under 120 competition would have been, prior to the grades being changed?

Derbyshire have defaulted the u1850 match on 27 November, which is a shame
