    Default CFC membership extensions due to COVID 19

    We are extending CFC Memberships, as it just does not seem appropriate to allow memberships to lapse when there are no events to play.
    The pandemic struck early in March, so the formula will be as follows:

    Memberships with an expiry date of 2020/03/01 remain current until we are back to a reasonable level of OTB play.
    Memberships expiring 2020/03/01 will expire on that date and others expiring past that date will be extended for N months (N = number of months between 2020/03/01 and return date).
    New players and those with an expiry date earlier than 2020/03/01 will be required to buy a membership.

    or for greater clarity.

    Memberships expiring 2020/03/01 will expire on that return date and others expiring past 2020/03/01 will be extended for N months (N = number of months between 2020/03/01 and return date).

    Return date being when we are back to a reasonable level of OTB play as determined by the CFC executive.

    To illustrate:

    Say OTB chess returns Sept 1, then

    2020/03/01 becomes 2020/09/01
    2020/04/01 becomes 2020/10/01
    2020/05/01 becomes 2020/11/01
    Etc.

    So everyone gets a free pass for shutdown period (March-august) - 6 months

    2020/04/01 gets 1 month of membership (Sept) past return date.
    2020/05/01 gets 2 months of membership (Sept-Oct) past return date
    Etc.

    Default

    We are announcing the end of the membership extension period as of today.
    That means that all members have received an 8 month extension.
    Although over the board chess has not returned yet to where we all hoped it would be by now,
    finances don't allow us to extend them indefinitely.

    The expiry dates have not amended yet, but will be over the next few days.

    Memberships expiring on:
    March 1, 2020 will become November 1, 2020
    April 1, 2020 will become December 1, 2020
    etc.

    We will begin sending out monthly renewal notices beginning tomorrow for the March 1 group.
