DPQL Committee Statement

Don Ingham writes:-

 

The committee met by Zoom last week.  Thanks to those who have been in touch regarding likely team and pub availability when full social interaction is permitted.

Even though some pubs have now opened, we are a way off being able to prepare for the new season as pubs could not yet host our quiz matches due to social distancing requirements.  The committee is continuing to monitor the situation and we will contact you about the new season when we believe we have a date that it will be possible to commence.

Likewise, we will contact you about the A.G.M. when we know it can be held.
