Barnsley Chess Club


Martin Sheard reports that Barnsley Chess Club has a new website address:


Looking at the home page we see they have got use again of the Locke Park WMC venue they used before, so they are luckier than clubs such as Rotherham.


Particularly interesting is the fact that at a meeting of members held on 10/08/2021, various in-house Covid mitigation rules were agreed.  As originally wording has changed since the notice was first posted.  Now, the stated default position regarding the wearing of masks is that both players in a game must wear them unless otherwise agreed between the players.
