USBC Open Championships 2020 Reno
« on: April 03, 2020, 05:33:08 PM »
I just received an email from USBC:


Quote
From everyone at USBC, we hope you and your family are healthy and safe during these challenging times. As you likely know, the start of the 2020 Open and Womenís Championships has tentatively been moved back to May 23.


We will continue to follow guidance from public health officials in determining a time frame in which to hold the 2020 USBC Open Championships.


If the start date needs to move further back in the year, we want your input. We ask that you take a short one question survey and let us know your thoughts on what you expect will happen with your teamís entry if the tournament moves later in 2020. The survey should take less than 1 minute.


Survey participants will be entered for a chance to win one of several $50 gift cards.


The survey ask if the tournament was postponed to Sept 1 through Nov 1 would I;
1. Be bowling in Reno
2. See you next year


Not exactly those words, but kinda.


I've already registered for 2021, but Sept through Nov does not work for my teams. So 2 was the choice.

Our group is going minus about 35% give or take.  But we are close in California.  I got to imagine the cancellations higher back East.  We only had 10,000 teams to start.  I wonder if only 5000 teams decide to bowl, if they finally cancel cause not profitable.

I'll be surprised if they even hit 3000 teams, with the limited size of squads with one team per pair, it's going to be interesting.

I didnít read the update.  But only 37 percent of women want to bowl and itís still going on?  Plus prize fund and brackets way down for financial reasons, so some of the big boys probably wonít bowl too.

However, I donít have to worry about my previous post on balance holes, since after August 1st, no holes for everyone!

The big boys will bowl and soak their tampons yet again because there will be absolutely no fish for them to beat up on.
