Our games, which stopped after 28 Mar 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions, resumed on 15 Sep 2020, subject to additional rules. There were 4 games in all in September 2020, 4 on Tuesday (15, 22 and 29 Sep 2020) and one on Saturday (26 Sep 2020). I am treating the September 2020 games as a continuation / completion of March 2020. I have amended the subject of this thread accordingly.
I have treated March / September 2020 as a single month/period. This period commencing October 2020 will end at the end of December 2020, or when our games return to a greater frequency.
Eric Y, Fred and Thiha have not played since the end of September 2019 and will be marked as inactive by the end of this period. Excluding the players to be so marked, the total number of GIFFA players (which include players in the PRG, U-21 and Female Players groups) at the start of this period increased from 165 to 167, the highest in the last 12 periods (period ending March 2019), but still well below the all-time high of 199 reached at the end of June 2014 / start of July 2014.
Shalom, Sharwani and Osama (all introduced by Iqbal) each played for the first time on 3 Nov 2020 (Tuesday) and are added to the guest list.
Safiee and Malcolm (both introduced by Iqbal) each played for the first time on 10 Nov 2020 (Tuesday) and have registered, so they are added to the PRG Group. Vishnu (also introduced by Iqbal) also played for the first time on 10 Nov 2020 and is added to the guest list.
Dan I (introduced by Iqbal) played for the first time on 24 Nov 2020 (Tuesday) and is added to the guest list.
As the number of games are substantially reduced due to Covid-19 restrictions, I will use this thread for November 2020 as well.
I renamed the thread "October & November 2020" accordingly.
We had 8 games in October 2020 and 8 games in November 2020, bringing the total for that period to 16, which is below the norm for an accounting period. I will therefore extend the accounting period to December 2020, bringing the whole quarter into one accounting period. It enables a greater uniformity across this Covid-19 period, and saves me some work, in not having to close each of the three months separately.
Accordingly, I will rename the thread "October to December 2020".
Since the records for players are based on the same accounting period as for payments, I have renamed this thread "October to December 2020" as well.
Weiyang (introduced by Damian) played for the first time in Raj Singh's challenge match on 12 Dec 2020 (Saturday), and is added to the guest list.
Christopher O (introduced by Desmond) played for the first time in Raj Singh's challenge match on 19 Dec 2020 (Saturday), and is added to the guest list.
Jothi (introduced by Jay V) played for the first time on 22 Dec 2020 (Tuesday), and is added to the guest list.
Kwun and Xavier (both introduced by Damian) played for the first time in Raj Singh's challenge match on 26 Dec 2020 (Saturday), and is added to the guest list.
Kee Hoe played again last night (Wednesday) for the first time since Q2 2014 and returns to the PRG Group.
Yitian (introduced by Kelvin Ho) played for the first time last night (Wednesday) and is added to the guest list.
The summary at the end of each month is usually the games played over the last 6 months. However, as stated above, due to the Covid-19 situation, October to December 2020 has been treated as one accounting period. Accordingly, the month-end summary is for the last 6 accounting periods.
The number of games played by those in the GIFFA Player groups over the last 6 accounting periods (163 players in total):
The number of games played by guests over the last 6 accounting periods (80 players in total):
