Hello all…I guess you all knew that we would not be playing on April 7th as the Shelter-in-Place order is in effect until April 7th. The Board will keep you informed.
The West Coast Challenge (WCC) will not be held during the weekend of June 18th as previously scheduled due to Covid-19. The LA Board hopes to reschedule in late July or early August if that is possible. More info to come!
Hello SFPA players,
The Board has decided to suspend league play through March 31st. We will reassess then regarding the rest of the season. We are cancelling all of the 8-Ball qualifiers in March and will decide if we will resume the qualifiers and league play into April and for the rest of the season. Our sister leagues are taking similar actions.
This has been a difficult decision that the Board has grappled with and this did not come easily as we all love the game. However, we feel the SF Department of Public Health advisories regarding gathering in groups should be followed. Although this may seem drastic to some, the SFPA has many members who are in high risk groups and this virus is highly contagious and we want to make the problem better, not worse. Our bottom line is protecting the health of our members.
If you have questions, feel free to contact me or any Board member.
SFPA League President
The Board is actively discussing essential precautions to be taken during the current epidemic of Covid 19.
As you know, the virus is most dangerous/deadly for elderly people, those with compromised immune systems or with other medical conditions. Many members of the SFPA league are in those high risk groups so we do need to take every measure to prevent the spread of the disease.
Please take the recommendations listed below seriously to keep all of our members safe:
1. Wash your hands regularly and after every game
2. No handshakes or hugs-elbow bumps work just as well
3. Stay home if you are sick
4. Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough
5. Avoid touching your face and wash your hands after you do
6. Consider bringing disinfectant wipes for use on playing equipment.
7. If any member contracts the disease, please notify a Board member immediately
Below is the CDC’s information page about Covid 19 including prevention and containment.
Ballots for Board positions will be distributed via email in a few weeks from Survey Monkey. A sample ballot will be posted to the website. Board positions up for election are:
