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.

The numbers are staggering…. Over 2billion mentions in the media. How will anyone survive?  Had a great time bowling a sweeper tournament today with 80+ entries.  Maybe the last one before the end

California governor just ordered all bars in the state closed.

From what I've read, it's a "request" that he expects to be obeyed. We'll see how that goes.  :)

Illinois is doing the same, effective end of business tomorrow (Monday, March 16) for two weeks minimum. Going to be interesting

Take out only?  That's rough.  No way that can spread a virus.  As smart as Starbucks doing drive thru only at many locations.  No flaws there.


Local and state associations postponed recent and upcoming tournaments.  The tournament I bowled today had it's USBC certification pulled two days ago because USBC strongly advises against tournaments and leagues.  If leagues continue are they going to pull league USBC certifications? 

Trying to take away potential business from the local centers seems like dangerous territory to mess with when the businesses chooses to continue on.

Just saw that most of the local centers are shutting down tonight due to our California Governor's latest announced restrictions. 
 
I'm taking my wife out to a restaurant for dinner in an hour. Hopefully, that won't shut down before we place our order.

Still working and working overtime here since the IRS still hasn't extended the tax deadlines.

Basically can work and workout at the gym. Everything else of entertainment value is closing and no sports

Just got the word that our 54 team league just got shut down for the season. I expect the other leagues to be cancelled tomorrow. I sure didn't think it was going to come to all of this 3-4 weeks ago when coronavirus first made the news out of China.

Ohio has now hinted at shuttering Daycares.

Pretty much everything for the next 8 weeks is toast. Be safe everyone

Bowling alleys are still open for now but leagues are cancelling and tournaments are “pausing”.

Ordered a pizza last night. Figured it might be the last one for awhile with as fast as things keep changing.

Everyone stay safe and healthy out there.
