Again, I hope you all are staying safe, are not too bored and are not missing pool too much, although I suspect many of you are longing to play.
The Board met last week and we were able to make some decisions although many things could not be decided due to the uncertainty about reopening our city and state. What we could decide:
1. We have officially ended the regular season at this point. All stats are final.
2. We will offer a half-season credit for next season for those of you who want
it. Please let us know and we will apply the credit in the amount of $35. If you do not
want the credit or don’t need it, please consider donating it to the league.
3. If the bars reopen and we can sponsor playoff games we will do so for teams
that want and can play. We cannot give much more information about how
that will be configured as we don’t know the number of teams that will play
and we cannot say the timing of these playoffs.
4. We will sponsor WCC qualifiers IF there is a WCC in late August in LA and IF we have open
venues to play them in. The governor has stated that large gatherings this summer should be
cancelled so that is hard to predict.
We are very unclear about many other aspects of our future. We do not know at this point when bars will reopen nor do we know if all of our sponsor bars will be able to reopen. Several of our sponsor bars have Go Fund Me accounts to raise money for staff. Here is a link if you would like to see the list or donate.
Additionally, we are not sure when next season will start due to the delay this spring nor can we know if we will have to shorten next season due to a late start.
What we can tell you is that we will be meeting again soon and will make decisions as we are able and we promise to maintain regular communication. Please let me know how you all are doing and stay well.
