Let's get back to Face to Face
  1. The club will provide masks at each venue for anyone asking for one, but the use of masks will not be required for those who are fully vaccinated.
  2. Hand sanitizers will be available at all venues and their use encouraged.
  3. The club will supply latex gloves to all that want them.
  4. We know that the virus we have all just lived through can at times be deadly and that many of us have compromised health systems to begin with. So, we ask that you please respect the safety and well-being of your fellow members and stay away if you feel unwell or sick in any way. We will not impose any further rules but ask that you place yourself on an Honor System to help us all remain healthy, fit, and able to go on enjoying one another’s company for years to come.
  5. Game directors are authorized to remove players from the room if they demonstrate obvious flu like symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, runny noses etc.
