TOURNAMENT UPDATE AS OF June 23, 2020
All prize checks were mailed today directly to each winner – please cash promptly!
Due to the continuing virus concerns and the uncertainty of when and how the centers can re-open; the Michigan State USBC Board of Directors made the difficult decision to close both the Women’s and the Open State Tournaments as of June 8, 2020.
We hope you will all know how we feel, but as we all navigate these unprecedented times, we are trying to do our best for all……
It saddens us for the centers, for the associations, for all of the lost revenue and the expenses that were incurred on a local and on the state level as well and especially for our bowlers.
A special thanks to all of you that have already sent in your request for either a credit or a refund, however if you have not already done so, please complete and submit one of the forms listed below. ONLY bowlers who did NOT compete should be submitting for refunds or credits.
We hope to still have a meeting and banquet, possibly in September or October to honor our award winners and honorees.
Thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding and we hope to see all of you next season back on the lanes.
Please continue to stay safe and enjoy your summer!
THESE FORMS MUST BE COMPLETED FOR A REFUND
REFUND/CREDIT REQUEST FORM- ADULT TOURNAMENTS (For Youth Form – see below)
- One form per team
- no partial refunds/credit….
- If paid by credit card- account will be credited back
- Team captains responsibility to see refunds are given back to bowlers timely.
All youth requests must come from the league official that is listed on the entries.
For the State Tournament you may use one form but list the entry numbers in the correct spot. i.e. entries 58-70.
The Pepsi is a little more complicated as each child has their own entry number. You may still use one form but must attach a sheet with the bowler’s name and entry number listed.
Again, all requests for the youth must come from the league official on record. Some centers pay for their youths entries, some have patrons that pay for some of the kids, and some kids have different last names than a parent or divorced parents, etc. It is impossible for us at the state level to be sure the money goes back to whomever paid for the entry. That responsibility belongs to the league official and we appreciate their help. Checks for refunds will be made payable to League Official or League.
We were Disappointed and YOU were too!
But let’s make something positive come out of this cancellation……
Let’s FEED THE HUNGRY !
Buy a T-shirt and proceeds will go to this worthy cause BECAUSE We Know “Bowlers Care”.
