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.

South Dakota State Tournaments are still on, but would not be surprised if that changes.

Postponed our Monday night league until April 6 as a precautionary measure. Mostly a seniors league, so it made sense seeing that they are the most vulnerable age group.
Hope everyone stays safe as well.

Please practice proper hygiene and hand washing as it is very effective and your first line of defence.

My center and league in South Florida has not closed or been postponed yet. We had position nite thursday and the team we were bowling didn't show because of the coronavirus, they are going to post bowl.  I would be less concerned as someone likr myself with their own equipment.... ball shoes etc...but if I were a casual bowler who rents house shoes and uses a house ball I would be concerned about using the shoes worn by many others(I know they spray them after each use)  and then using a ball that has had how many hands on them and fingers in the holes.

Our Tuesday night league has 54 / 5 man teams. Indianapolis has mandated that no more than 250 people can gather at any one time. I'm told that each team will have to use one blind score for the rest of the season, getting us to 54 / 4 man teams. There will not be any bystanders / family permitted to attend. I haven't heard anything yet on the Wednesday night and Thursday night leagues, which are smaller leagues.

So, for the unlucky teammate that gets locked out do they only pay prize fund and not lineage?  Is that the only league in the house on that night?  This is definitely a creative solution, but how do you decide which teammate sits out.  Are you all taking turns taking a week off?

Haven't heard what they're doing about the money yet. I know that's going to come up though. Our team is going is going to take turns sitting out. I think we've got 5 weeks left, so everybody would end up sitting out one week.

Getting interesting in Ohio. Governor stated he doesnít know when schools will reopen and may not reopen this school year. If thatís the case I think everything is in trouble in Ohio. Hell they closed all the casinos for 2 or 3 weeks. Now you know itís really serious here.

The Wisconsin State Tournament has been suspended after this weekend. Our Governor is saying no gathering of more than 250. Our league has 80 bowlers but we bowl on two different nights as we have only 8 lanes. I would think we would continue, but make sure we tell all bowlers who feel they are getting sick or are sick to stay home. We are not a highly populated are so I think we are in less danger than bigger cities.

Major retailers like Apple and Nike have closed until 3/27. Small business owners risk losing it all now.

Iím not seeing as many internet medical professionals now that shit has gotten really real.

I'm not downplaying the coronavirus, but how is this getting any more real than H1N1 was? 60.8 million Americans were infected with H1N1 and 12,469 deaths were reported. When it was finally declared a national emergency 1000 had already died. I don't remember closures and the panic instilled by the media over that. That was a damn serious thing as over 500,000 died worldwide!!

I read on FB that Sea Bowl is confirmed to be closed. In SoCal, I haven't heard (yet) of any center closing. The local centers I bowl in are trying to stay open with enhanced hygiene practices. It's a tough situation for an owner to shut down unless there is clearly no other choice.
