Junior organisers running OTB tournaments

Post by Joseph Conlon » Tue Feb 23, 2021 7:31 pm

With the government roadmap out, it appears that according to the roadmap, junior chess may be able to restart from 12th April, as part of step 2.

I am starting this thread in order to have a separate dedicated thread for those who run junior OTB events and want to restart sooner rather than later and wish to discuss ideas, plans etc.

Personally, I have just emailed the venue I use to ask them when they will be taking bookings again :)

Children allowed to attend indoor play activities, with up to 15 parents or guardians allowed to join them. I think Stage four
No earlier than 21 June:

All legal limits on social contact will be removed.

Great news Joseph. Let us know when your tournament is in April with an entry form and I'll inform our Juniors.
Good luck.
When are you reopening your Junior Chess Club?

I don't run a junior chess club, so that may have to wait a long time.
