COVID:  This event will be played as if it is still the year 2019 and no specific COVID precautions will be taken, e.g. no social distancing.  Please note:  do not attend if you have COVID symptoms or have recently tested positive;  facemasks are optional;  hand sanitiser will be available;  failing to shake hands will not be thought discourteous.  And please be sensitive to others’ approaches to COVID risk, which may not be yours.
