Coronavirus
« on: March 13, 2020, 11:19:28 AM »
Has any leagues been cancelled that some of you bowl in due to the Coronavirus ? A tournament I was going to bowl in pulled the plug. I'm in Ohio where mass gatherings of 100 or more are prohibited. Things are changing daily so it could be an adjustment after the 2 p.m. press conference.

I'm supposed to bowl the Ohio State tournament 3/28 & 3/29.  Has a cancellation been announced yet?  Anyone bowling that know?

UPDATE:  My dumb ass should have just visited the site:

"All Ohio State USBC tournament competition for this weekend (3/14 & 3/15) is postponed."

Isn't it a decentralized process?  My guess is it will take a vote, or a majority of people to do it league by league.  The house, I'm assuming, will want to stay open as long as possible.  I'd like to keep going but if whole teams bow out I wouldn't feel right about continuing, even if that could be really bad for the alleys.

Great question. I bowl in two leagues in the same house here in northern NJ. The Thursday night league bowled as scheduled last night. So far, I have not heard anything about closing or suspensions. The house is a family run operation. Management's intention is to keep the place open, but like you said, that position could change tomorrow or even today.

Ohio Inter City tourney is still on for this weekend but is cancelled the next two weekends. As of now the weekends of April 4/5 are still on as well as the other April weekends. Officials are trying to work out other dates to make up the 2 missed weekends but Holiday Bowl has a PBA regional the first weekend of May....

With the USBC making the call on the tournaments, this affected us here in Norcal, as the Pepsi Youth tournament has now been cancelled. Our local alley is putting together an alternate tournament for the kids, while we are still waiting to find out about the State tournaments which are slated for 2 weeks from now.

Perfect time to make sure all of your extra holes are plugged. :)

Our Monday league is large (190 bowlers), and in accordance with trying to limit groups of 100+ people we have decided to not bowl for the next two weeks.  After that we will decide a course of action because this thing is changing day to day.

How so? care to elaborate?

I ask because I can see ambiguity between the USBC hosting an event, versus USBC sponsoring or certifying an event. For example, State tournaments are certified by the USBC, but are hosted and governed by that state's bowling association.

I believe - but could be wrong - he is referring to the cap on the number of people at a gathering. If you exceed that number at the gathering - the tournament- could be illegal.

Is it really that important to run a tournament at this time?

Depending on the amount of participants, it could be too large a gathering.
