Club sessions start again on Tuesday 2nd March However the new covid restrictions only allow Pairs and Singles matches and a maximum of 14 players (30% of 48, the maximum match capacity at El Cid, i.e. 6 rinks of 8 people) So early arrival at the club is strongly recommended!
The intention is that the bar will be open and that bar food will be available. Only the outside terrace will be in use.
A lot of work has been and still is going on at El Cid. The bar terrace has been jet washed and walls painted.
Then for the the last 6 days a team of members along with Andy Hollis from the El Cid management have been working on the wooden structures at each end of the green. ALL the roof panels have been replaced with new wood. More brackets and supports attached. & some new pillars will be going in tomorrow. Then the new coverings will go on. Sadly but understandably the management is not happy for a waterproof cover to be attached in anyway to the newly repaired structure.Other options will be investigated. It is hoped that most of the work will be completed by Tuesday morning. Massive thanks to David Hall, Paul Trunchion, Peter Whitbread and Stewart Beattie for their commitment to , putting it politely ,a nightmare of a job! Ilya also started jet washing the terrace at the notice board end of the green today. Richard Warrillow plans to hoover the green on Sunday. It definitely needs it!
The possibility of playing some Singles and Pairs Club Championship matches will be looked at shortly! Watch this space.
Please remember that, as with before the last break, all sanitizing and facemask procedures must still be complied with.
Weather permitting see some of you at the club on Tuesday morning. Yippeeee!
