DPQL June Report

 

Don Ingle writes:

The committee met by Zoom on Wednesday evening.  Clearly there is not much we can do or suggest at the moment, but we thought it would be worthwhile letting you know that we will be making plans for a new league season when normality has been restored sufficiently for this.

At the moment, many of us will have no idea whether our pubs will survive or whether they will change in character, but it would be useful to have an indication whether any team does not think they will be able to continue (at some location or another).  This is not a firm decision, just an indication if a perceived difficulty is likely – then let me know.

We hope you are all staying safe and well and that quizzing will resume in as close to the usual timetable as possible.
