Dear Friends:

Due to the shutdown of our building, the Club will be closed until further notice. There has been no indication that anyone associated with the Club, who attended Club events, or entered the building has been infected with or exposed to COVID-19, however there are confirmed cases in Allegheny County.

Unfortunately, this also means we are suspending the Byland Memorial Tournament, cancelling our March Blitz (scheduled for March 18), and cancelling our March Lecture (scheduled for March 25). Sunday & Monday classes are postponed until April 19. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please keep in mind that this is still a rapidly evolving situation. The Board will meet again on March 25 to reassess any new information from our local authorities and we will keep you informed should future changes be needed.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Mark Jeromin
President, Pittsburgh Chess Club
