Dear Members

Under the current COVID-19 restrictions the following restrictions must be followed when visiting the club.

You can no longer go to the bar to be served, so the staff will be operating a table service only.

You MUST wear a face mask in the club until you’re seated and remain in your seat, then you can remove it.

You MUST put the mask back on when you go to the toilets or to go out for a cigarette.

Remember to fill the Track and Trace register and anyone not putting all their details down will NOT be served.
With your help in adhering to these restrictions it will play a big part in protecting the staff, people you come in contact with and more importantly YOU.
I know these are still very tough times and we are very happy to be staying open and offering our members/visitors the use of our facilities.
Please take care and stay safe.

Chris Mason , ex darts player , ITV4 commentator posted this to Facebook via Andrew Pagett . :(

I heard through the grapevine (my son via his mate) that The Lucky Break Snooker Club has been taken over and the shutters are down .

Question is will it ever reopen because it's prime land for building but I will have to ask around to find out exactly what is happening but who would like to own a Snooker Club in times like these ? :rolleyes::(

https://wst.tv/coronavirus-epsb-guidance-update/

Thursday 24 Sep 2020 12:49PM
Following announcements by UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson in respect of new national restrictions to address rising cases of coronavirus in England, the English Partnership for Snooker and Billiards has updated its current guidance documents for its affiliated snooker facilities in England.

EPSB Covid-19 Guidance documents
Please note that this is guidance only and clubs must also continue to consult their Local Authority and Health and Safety Executive for approval of their club Covid-19 secure protocols.

KEY CHANGES
GENERAL CLUB COMPETITIONS
From 24 September there is no longer an exemption to the “Rule of six” for indoor organised sport for over-18s as previously in place. This has the following effect:

National Governing Body competitions will not take place until further notice
Pro-Am competitions should not take place until further notice
Snooker exhibitions should not take place until further notice.
Internal club competitions should be designed within the UK Government’s guidelines to align with the ‘Rule of six’. Any formats that could involve larger numbers of people mixing should be revised to avoid this happening e.g. played over several weeks rather than on a single day.

FACE COVERINGS
There have been revisions to the guidance in respect of face coverings as follows:

Face coverings now must be worn to enter all snooker venues.
These can be removed once at a designated snooker table or bar table, at players’ discretion.
They must be put on again whenever leaving the designated area. Exemptions apply.
BUSINESS OPENING
There have also been changes in respect of business opening and the availability of food:

All affiliated clubs must be closed between 10:00pm and 5:00am.
Clubs providing food and drink should observe the closing times for takeaways, but delivery services can continue after 10:00pm.
In licensed premises, food and drink must be ordered from, and served at, a table, which includes a designated snooker table.
Wherever possible, snooker balls and equipment should be brought to the booked table by a member of staff.
QR CODES
All businesses will need to display the official NHS QR code posters so that customers can ‘check-in’ at different premises using this option as an alternative to providing their contact details once the app is rolled out nationally (from 24 September). This is available from https://tinyurl.com/y68mfwwl

FURTHER SUPPORT
Any affiliated 147 Club requiring further support can contact Bob Hill for further information or alternatively is encouraged to share queries within our dedicated Facebook Group where club owners are encouraged to seek guidance and share experiences nationally for the benefit of all.

Can you believe that folks ? :(

That's the way it is to be ! :eek:

PM Boris 'Bonkers' Johnson has ordered everywhere to shutdown at 10pm and the law is if you break the rules you can be fined up to £10,000 , flout the law and they can shut you down . Don't do it , no point in going bust for flouting a law and maybe the best way around it is to find a mate with a table . :rolleyes::cool::wink::grin-square:

It's grim .

Sad times indeed .

What would you give to walk into a bar and hear the crack of the balls at the break off ?

Covid in Scotland: New alcohol rules 'will cost thousands of jobs' :

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-54456825 .

Quote .

"All licensed premises - with the exception of hotels for residents - will be required to close indoors and outdoors, although takeaways will be permitted
Cafes which do not have an alcohol licence will be able to stay open until 18:00
Snooker and pool halls, indoor bowling alleys, casinos and bingo halls will also close in the five health board areas for two weeks from 10 October
Contact sports for people aged 18 and over will be suspended for the next two weeks - with an exception for professional sports
Indoor group exercise activities will not be allowed, although the current rules will remain in place for under 18s and gyms can remain open for individual exercise
Outdoor live events will not be permitted for the next fortnight."

First Minister for Scotland Nicola Sturgeon.....

The entire statement reads like paragraphs from Adolf Hitlers Meine Kampf :

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mein_Kampf

Covid in Scotland: New alcohol rules 'will cost thousands of jobs' :

Quote .

"Rules for the rest of Scotland
Pubs, restaurants and cafes are being barred from selling alcohol indoors from 18:00 on Friday until 25 October
They can open inside from 06:00 until 18:00 to sell soft drinks and food
They will be able to sell alcohol for outside areas until 22:00"

To cut it short and sweet any Snooker Halls in the central belt of Scotland who managed to somehow reopen after the lockdown who somehow found a way to survive under the new restrictions are now being forced to close for sixteen days as from today 09/010/2020 .

Grim times ahead.::rolleyes::frown::(:frown:

PARTYPOKER MOSCONI CUP MOVES TO RICOH ARENA, COVENTRY :​

PARTYPOKER MOSCONI CUP MOVES TO RICOH ARENA, COVENTRY​

The 2020 partypoker Mosconi Cup will now take place at Ricoh Arena, Coventry, a change from its original venue of Alexandra Palace, London.
The event will still take place from December 1-4. Promoters Matchroom Multi Sport are working hard to have fans inside the venue, should it be possible within UK government guidelines. However, all ticket holders will now have their orders automatically refunded.
Should fans be able to attend, those who had tickets booked for this year’s event will be given priority access to purchase tickets.
The 2020 partypoker Mosconi Cup will be broadcast live on Sky Sports, DAZN and Matchroom.Live, and Matchroom Multi Sport are working on ways for fans to remain a part of the event in a number of different ways.
Emily Frazer, Managing Director of Matchroom Multi Sport, said: “We aren’t giving up. We are pushing for spectators to be able to attend, but for now we are starting fresh and looking at how we can get some fans in there. We are redesigning the arena, looking at our new plans and working within government guidance to try and get some fans in.
“We have done events behind closed doors across our sports this year, we know we can do that successfully and still engage with fans at home, so whatever happens, everyone will still be able to have a good time and enjoy the partypoker Mosconi Cup, but we haven’t given up yet and are still working to have fans attend.
“The event will definitely go ahead, we will be in a Covid-19 secure bubble, with all players and personnel tested, and if we can get spectators in then we will be doing everything we possibly can to make that happen.”
Further updates on the partypoker Mosconi Cup will be made at MatchroomPool.com and on Matchroom Pool social media pages.
All ticket holders will now have their original purchase automatically refunded within 30 days."

Coronavirus: Travel rules after England goes into second lockdown on Thursday :​


I've read that some people have booked flights , accommodation and tickets for this years Mosconi Cup from as long ago as last years event . The event moved from Alexandra Palace London to The Ricoh Arena , Coventry so it's probably best to try for a refund as it's an ever changing Lock down picture here in the UK . To give you an idea , PM Boris 'Bonkers' Johnson said there would be no second lock down but on Saturday night he locked down England for four weeks !

Just wanted to update everyone. Im safe. Posting this from a bar, in a city where there hasn't been a mask mandate, and businesses have been open since April. I'm alive (so far), and so is everyone else. I repeat. We are alive and well, in a bar, no masks, and after 10pm! No virus detected as of yet. Will update soon. Operation 'you all been fooled' in full effect. 🙏🏾
Notice how the last week up until the election, we constantly heard about the Corona virus in Wisconsin, a swing state? Then now, we don't hear shit? Ya. That!!!!!!

Fast forward 92 years to the year 2020 and Secret Agent Covid - 19 shut down the Scottish Billiard Halls :

Timeline of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Scotland :​


Somehow The Scottish Government got the word from Secret Agent Covid - 19 that Pool Halls were not allowed to re-open but Snooker Halls could but the next thing 10PM then 6PM was closing time so the Snooker Halls shut down .

Is there no end to this ?

More updates to follow.....

I think you haven't been paying attention.

Wisconsin is getting worse every day. It's in the news every day.

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/usa/wisconsin/

Many other states are faring as bad or worse. North Dakota and South Dakota lead the nation. Hospitals are filled to capacity. Tent hospitals are being set up. Morgue trucks are back in play, although now mostly in the midwest. Check out what's happening in El Paso.

BERGMAN RULED OUT OF PARTYPOKER MOSCONI CUP AFTER POSITIVE COVID-19 TEST​

MOSCONI CUP November 25th, 2020 :
Quote .
"
Former US Open Champion Corey Deuel To Join Team USA

Justin Bergman has been ruled out of the partypoker Mosconi Cup after testing positive for Covid-19. He will be replaced by former US Open Champion Corey Deuel, who has provided a negative test result and will represent America for an 11th time at the event.

All players are required to test negative for Covid-19 just before departing for the UK, however Bergman’s test returned a positive result leaving him unable to travel to England.

Captains were asked to submit alternative picks in September, after they had chosen their team of five players. Team USA Captain Jeremy Jones opted for Deuel as his first alternate, hoping that the Californian can draw on his vast partypoker Mosconi Cup experience.

Speaking about Bergman being ruled out of the event, Captain Jones said: “It is a big body blow to a small man who has a huge heart. Playing in the Mosconi Cup means more than anything to Justin. He really likes the atmosphere of the team and having the other guys on his side, like most of us do. It is very, very unfortunate and one thing I can say about Justin is he will be our biggest fan out there.

“It wasn’t an easy decision but the way things went down with Chris being selected fifth and being a rookie, we felt like maybe if we needed a player to come in as an alternate we wanted a little more experience. Not to say that Tyler doesn’t have two years’ experience, but Corey has got 10 Mosconi Cups, and I think Corey is playing really well. When we talk about somebody coming in and filling shoes, we felt that experience was the way to go.”

Players will compete in the partypoker Mosconi Cup under Elite Sports Person Exemptions. They will be met on arrival to the UK and driven directly to the Ricoh Arena, Coventry for a further Covid-19 test and will remain within the event bubble until the completion of the event.

Everybody at Matchroom Multi Sport would like to send their best wishes to Justin – stay healthy, and have a speedy recovery."

The partypoker Mosconi Cup will take place from Tuesday, December 1 until Friday, December 4, live on Sky Sports Mix in the UK, DAZN and Matchroom.Live. Full broadcast details can be found at mosconicup.com

Follow Matchroom Pool on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram. For all the latest event news please visit www.mosconicup.com.

I take for a given you already know about this one.....
