Ted and Ruby Yudacufski Memorial Tuesday Night Marathon (Mar-Apr 2020)

Tuesday, March 3, 2020

Posted Sunday March 8, 2020, 7:35pm

Hello players and parents,
Mechanics’ Institute has decided to cancel our Ted Yudacufski Tuesday Night Marathon scheduled for March 3- April 14, 2020 due to concerns regarding coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). Given the large anticipated attendance and the fact that the City and County of San Francisco declared a state of emergency and advised against large, non-essential gatherings, Mechanics’ Institute wanted to proceed with an abundance of caution and therefore decided to cancel this event.
We will be submitting all the games from round 1 for rating, both to FIDE and the USCF.
We will resume our Tuesday night chess programming once we have a better understanding of the impact COVID-19 has in the community. We will notify you when this occurs, including the event format. We will process full refunds, within 72 hours.
We appreciate your patience and cooperation. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions. At the moment, we cannot predict when chess on Tuesday nights will resume, so please be patient as we follow the lead from public health officials. 

Regards,
Abel

Hello players and parents,

Mechanics’ Institute has decided to cancel our Ted Yudacufski Tuesday Night Marathon scheduled for March 3- April 14, 2020 due to concerns regarding coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). Given the large anticipated attendance and the fact that the City and County of San Francisco declared a state of emergency and advised against large, non-essential gatherings, Mechanics’ Institute wanted to proceed with an abundance of caution and therefore decided to cancel this event. 

We will be submitting all the games from round 1 for rating, both to FIDE and the USCF. 

We will resume our Tuesday night chess programming once we have a better understanding of the impact COVID-19 has in the community. We will notify you when this occurs, including the event format. 

We will process full refunds, within 72 hours. 

We appreciate your patience and cooperation. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions. At the moment, we cannot predict when chess on Tuesday nights will resume, so please be patient as we follow the lead from public health officials. 

Regards,

Abel
