I am currently available those dates but not sure I can 100% commit to them, so I wonder how that effects the "rounds" if I make, say 2 of the 3? But then if I cannot make the last date, it is unlikely to matter as I rarely make the top half of the table anyway!

Also, I was reading/replying to Trev's post on the Sutton-in-Ashfield thread and he mentions that "under pubs and clubs regulations each table is a separate group" so for that recent comp we had 4 groups of 2 that we appropriately socially distanced.

So I would ask to check again what the Wolvercote Hall guidance is on max numbers under the new rules, as as surely it would be better to run the full compo on the 11 Oct as planned and maybe run 1 or 2 more on the other Sundays as well (to make up for lost opportunities from other cancelled events this year) assuming it was fair and equitable with the interests of the other OWS members.

I have just checked the Govt. regs under the new “rule of 6”. I found the following in relation to use of community facilities ( as opposed for instance to a hospitality facility such as a pub)
“3c: Recreation, leisure and social gatherings
Managers and providers in community facilities are not permitted to organise or hold informal or formal social groups, clubs and activities unless limited to groups of six people following social distancing rules.

However, for activities and social groups where there is a significant likelihood of groups mixing and socialising ( and where it will be difficult to prevent mingling and therefore breaking the law) should not take place in a community facility. These may include but are not limited to:
  • formal or informal clubs and hobby clubs (e.g. women’s institute, veteran’s associations, freemasons, sewing clubs, book clubs, crafts clubs, reading groups)
    amateur choirs and orchestras
    informally organised sport activities on facilities grounds (professionally organised sport activities are exempt)”
I think this means that we have made a correct decision in creating a limit of 6 attendees. I shall see what the Hall thinks and also, if there is any doubt, put it to the OWS membership.

I have now got some guidance from the Hall which they got from the body that looks after community facilities nationally. Essentially the advice is as we thought; clubs such as ours should be limited to 6 at an event.

Accordingly it seems that our best option is to spread the whole ECW event over three Sundays as I outlined. We will give some thought to the details and post something soon - but it looks as if all the places for round 1 are gone now.

Having thought it through a bit more we want to add one further rule that there will be one spot at each event reserved for an OWS member to be responsible for the use of the Hall and running the event generally. So, if an OWS member does not naturally make it through to the 3rd round then the sixth highest scorer will, unfortunately, have to be replaced by the highest scoring OWS player.

Not ideal but there seems to be no alternative so we hope everyone will be OK with it.

Anyone who has not entered round 1 and would like a place in round 2 should please now go to our website and buy a ticket. At some point before the event, if we are short of 6 then we shall be able to take entrants who already played in round 1 - always remembering that we need at least one OWS member included.


Any comments or views?
