Hello Fellow Pool Players,
We hope you are well and are looking forward to returning to the league when we start up again. The Board is planning our return to play and have a lot of information to share with you, so please read this email completely.
With the projected opening date for California being June 15th, we are hoping to start the fall season on August 17th. We will let you know additional dates as they are finalized.
The Board has decided that we will not be charging dues this coming season for players or sponsor bars given the challenging year we have all had. (Donations are welcome and are 100% tax deductible.) We have also decided to shorten our fall season to 10 weeks given the uncertainty the pandemic continues to create.
We have developed a list of safety protocols for when we do return to play. The document is attached. Most notably, wearing a mask covering your nose and mouth will be required at the table at all times and failure to comply will result in a loss of game.
We are holding elections for President, Secretary, Co-Head-Referee (Stern’s position) and Member-at-Large (Troy’s position.) If you would like to run for any of these positions, contact email@example.com within the next week. We will also be asking you all to weigh in on whether you plan to return to play in the fall. The ballot will come from firstname.lastname@example.org and the format is in SurveyMonkey.
We are in the process of enrolling in Amazon Smile which will give SFPA a percentage of all purchases made at Amazon. This is a painless and easy way to raise funds for the league.
The West Coast Challenge will not be played in 2021. LA Pool League was scheduled to host the tournament, but that was derailed due to Covid. We are planning on WCC in August, 2022 in San Francisco.
If you are planning on playing in the BCA Nationals in Las Vegas in September, we were told that they are being very flexible in terms of eligibility to play.
Please feel free to reach out to me and let me know your thoughts, questions, and whether you plan on playing in the fall. Looking forward to seeing you all in person.
SFPA League President
