bought some flight tickets even :)

Arrive at 17.00 (I can wait for 19.00 people if that makes it easier).

Leave at 13.00 (Guess I need to be at the airport around 12.00)

Hey guys. I sadly won't make it this year. Too busy with my f*cked up life right now. Issues I wasn't able to fix in the last couple of months and need to fix now before I burn out.

I am really grateful for being part of the whole community and for all of you guys.

Hopefully I will see you again throughout the year somewhere in Europe when I got everything back in order.

Bless you!
Good luck, and feel free to reach out if you need a hand with anything. We're a pretty resourceful group
Thx to all of you guys. Means a lot to me. I'll be back, when everything is sorted out.

We are not looking great for this either. :( our return flight has been cancelled. I wonder when will Ryanair cancel the flights to UK.

I mean once there... I might just go to Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for this all to blow over. :(

If you’re going to be in Winchester anyway, see if you can get to Kingsclere from there (it’s not far). It’s a really great place if you like the countryside - Watership Down is a short walk from the village.

(Edit - I believe I may have just completely missed the quote. The advice stands anyway.)

Any chance of a GEMP event for this instead?

I've already spoken to Kev and I'm pretty sure that this event will be cancelled. The UK is currently in lockdown with all non-essential businesses being told to close and there is a ban on non-essential travel. We are only allowed outside once per day for exercise and we are not allowed to be in groups of more than 2 people.

With a heavy heart I can confirm, this event has no choice but to cancel.

COVID-19 and everything that's happening in the world right now, pushing pieces of card around a table seem's rather far fetched and extravagant. I'm sure everyone's thoughts right now are on keeping their families & loved one's safe and most of all healthy.

The UK is currently one week into lockdown with strict isolation polices in place, which have been hinted at will last for another 11 weeks at the earliest. The news is full of what's happening in the rest of Europe, a part of me thinks 11 weeks is still too soon for the social distancing practices to be removed partially or fully, here's to hoping I'm completely wrong.
The venue, my company, is also 1 week into to a forced closure. The last few weeks have been chaotic, while I've been working to put the company into a state of hibernation to ride out the public closure order for an indefinite amount of time. During this time I was hoping that It would only be a 2/3 week period of closure, however it's now looking like June is when some of the policies may be lifted so the doors may reopen.

I know that some of you have had fights and accommodation already contact you cancelling, so I hope this does not leave many out of pocket.

Please stay safe everyone, I want to be sat at a table pushing cards around & drinking beer with you all soon.

Absolutely. Hope all of you with small companies survive. Otherwise you get a lot of time for silly cards. Take care.

Sad to hear that, but you are 100% right. At the moment health & safety of everyone and their families is more important than pushing cards around. I hope, you, your family, your business and everyone else in this great community stays safe during these times.

Take care all of you!

Btw, I am sorry to say that but I am afraid that any tournament before mid June will be only with domestic players.
No airplane companies will be allowed to fly over other countries until June.
All local tournament director should take that into consideration and adjust their tourney.
