With the concern over the spread of COVID-19, questions have arisen concerning upcoming Oregon State USBC (OSUSBC) Tournaments including, the Women’s, Open, Youth, and Pepsi Tournaments. As the OSUSBC is charged with serving the bowlers of Oregon, it is with great care the OSUSBC Board of Directors deliberates and carefully considers the factors surrounding this issue. Having heard from those lobbying for caution as well as those that are of the belief that risks are minimal, the OSUSBC Board will do its best to stay in front of the situation by gathering as much factual information as available.
With the recent announcements regarding limiting public gatherings, it is not just the quantity that factors into the decision-making process for our tournament but that it signals a move towards a direction of caution. So, the decision for the Open Tournament is that the tournament will proceed, but all events scheduled in April will be postponed until the last weekend in May and the first three weekends in June. This postponement will be posted on our social media platforms and website.
The OSUSBC Open Tournament Director will be contacting all team captains either through e-mail or phone call notifying them of the postponement and to ask for alternative dates and squads. This process will be begin as soon as possible to help facilitate any changes to travel arrangements. Since this situation seems to be changing by the day, please be aware that this decision could possibly change as well. If there are any additional changes to the schedule, we will do our best to notify all team captains directly as well as post notices on our various social media platforms and website.
We have been receiving many calls and e-mails regarding the status of the upcoming Oregon State USBC Open and Women’s Championship tournaments. With Sunday’s announcement regarding the extension of the federal social-distancing recommendation to April 30th, the OSUSBC board will be meeting via videoconferencing on April 2nd to discuss the status of these tournaments. We will post on Friday, both to our Facebook pages and to our website, the outcome of that meeting in regard to the Open and Women’s tournament. In the event of further postponements to the schedule or any cancellations, we will be contacting all team captains directly either through e-mail or phone call.
Please stay tuned.
The Pepsi State Finals has been changed to May 2nd and 3rd. Squad times are the same. All participants have been contacted regarding the change. If you have not received notice, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please stay tuned.
