Kiel********-P***********, Dominic, of Coulsdon.
With an ECF AGM coming shortly will the ECF Directors be pressed to say what actions, if any, they might be able to take to lobby in favour of chess? Isn't it a member of a broad body called something like "Sport and Recreation Alliance" ? I believe Malcolm won an award from it for "Chess in Schools".
An obvious approach would be to make reference to reports such as this one to argue that low risk social interaction should be allowed sooner rather than later.
I suspect Jon is right that this is something the ECF are doing and I will be surprised if no reference to it in reports when they are published.
Thanks Chris, you saved my skin.

I've not found the shortest one yet, perhaps you could help.
The players with the shortest names on the fide list are all Chinese.
You're spot on Matt. I'm a bit more hopeful that we might see a few tournaments next summer, perhaps Thanet and Leyland. Early summer at best, like Heywood and South Lakes.Matt Bridgeman wrote: ↑Mon Sep 21, 2020 11:43 amThe scientific press conference today was quite sobering. The doubling of infection rates each week heading in the direction of 50,000 cases a day by mid-October if unchecked. For chess I’d think over the board chess will will remain quite limited until people receive a vaccine, and feel confident it’s making them safe. Perhaps by Autumn next year people will start to get a choice of some congresses to attend again, but who knows?
