Boylston Chess Club Flood Update

Dear chessplayers,

First, a great big thanks to all who came out to help clean up the club today. Without all the hard work, we wouldn't be able to make any progress at all. It was tremendously heartening to see so many care about the well-being of the club.

We were able to bail out most of the club, move out furniture, and mop the floors. Unfortunately, we discovered a few leaks from one wall that we cannot yet totally contain.

Until we have a better picture of how much water will come from the wall, we have suspended moving tables and boards back into place. Please keep an eye on this blog as we check the space on Monday to make a determination. We hope to return the club to full functionality by the end of the week, and I will let people know our plans as soon as possible. We were only able to make as much progress as we have because of dedicated volunteers, and we will ask for your help periodically throughout the week.
