  1. Has Checkmate Re-Opened?

    “I will be in Wellington soon and was thinking of visiting Checkmate, however the website is no longer active and the Facebook page has no recent postings and will not allow any messages to be sent. I would be grateful if someone from Welly could let me know if it is still open and if not does Wellington have another venue? -Aussie Bruce“

  3. Website Link - Inappropriate!

    “The website link is hacked by virus and asking for monetary donation!“
