I M P O R T A N T . . Club is now closed Tue 03 Jan 2012

I M P O R T A N T . . GSCL is postponed till 10 Jan 2012. The WOCC plays Hamilton, at home. Work being done to the building continues to be uncertain.

Thus: Round Six of the WOCC Late Fall Swiss must NOW again be postponed till 17 Jan 2012.

As these changes move downstream in the colander pipeline, the Annual Meeting and Elections have also to be further moved up, to Tuesday 24 Jan 2012.

President John Hagerty is examining whether a plan B is to be considered, since the uncertainty on the construction management side shows no sign of ending.

In view of that, it is decided by the TD that if any scheduled matches wish to meet offsite, and/or play their game before the 17th, that this is permitted. This of course is only if both persons agree amicably. The requirement is for the 17th.

Please let us apologize. Believe us when we tell you, its all on a day by day basis to our club leaders.

[Email, as we were publishing, club President John sent and email to the editor, similar to above, to make sure the status of the club was properly communicated. This was recently discussed, and he asked us to notify members. Copy of his note, directly here:

I just want to make sure that all WOCC members know that the schedule of events has been pushed up a week and that we reopen on Jan. 10th for the GSCL, the official 6th and final rd. of the Late Fall Swiss will be on the 17th, and that the Annual Meeting and Election will then be held on the 24th. Also, let them know that players in the tournament can make individual arrangements to wrap up their last round games.
Thanks and Happy New Year


ps. Jose Fernandez and I would like to get confirmations either by phone or e-mail about their commitment to be in the USATE event to be held in Feb. We need to know asap especially for those who may wish to reserve a hotel room at the Hilton to grt the special Chess rate. Again, thanks'.]
