If you find an event that appears to be taking place in person rather than online – PLEASE CHECK WITH THE ORGANISERS! It may be that they have simply neglected to let us know that their event is cancelled, or it may be taking place under strict pandemic rules and conditions which you’ll need to know about before attending to play, but they may have not told us! Please check first.
