Message from Chairman Dave as follows:

I have had communication from some teams and Committee members over the weekend.
In view of the predicted advice for over 70 year olds to avoid social contact I do not think it is feasible to complete league fixtures and the cup games in the forthcoming weeks.
The quiz league will therefore be postponed for the rest of the season. The Committee will make decisions about playing the remaining games in September / October but I do not forsee huge problems in doing this.
I am not taking a poll of teams on this as I think it is reasonable for teams with more vulnerable members to say they will not be able to fulfill fixtures. After all this is just a fun quiz not an obligation.
Please keep the questions for Tuesday 17th March safe.
Can you please contact your opponents for Tuesday to ensure people know what is happening in case they have not seen this email or the Latest News on the website.
