Hours of Operation
Dear Bowlers and Friends -
We are at a point now where we would like to send out a short update. Unfortunately, we would love to be able to say that we are on the original time frame of reopening after next week, but on Monday, March 23rd, Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued the "stay home, stay safe" executive order. As part of that executive order, businesses that are non-essential, like bowling centers, are required to remain closed through April 13th. This means that the EARLIEST we will be able to reopen is on April 14th, provided there is not an extension.
We would like to try and answer some of the frequent questions we have been receiving below.
Will leagues be required to make up missed weeks? No, we are not going to require leagues to make up the weeks missed so far. If the mandate is lifted on the current time frame, and we reopen on April 14th, we will ask that leagues bowl any weeks going forward from that point. If a league would like to elect to make up one or two or all of the missed weeks, we will be more than happy to accommodate them.
What happens if a bowler has paid a season in full? Any money paid for weeks that are not made up will be refunded to the bowler in their prize money at the league payout.
When will leagues payout? Once the mandate ends and the bowling center is able to open, we will begin scheduling payouts for leagues scheduled to end during the mandated closure. Any leagues that have weeks left will payout as scheduled at the completion of the league season. This topic will be updated as necessary.
Again, we ask that you please keep in mind that we are in a completely unprecedented and ever changing global pandemic. There are no precedents for us to follow with how to handle all situations. We are asking for your patience as we try to figure out logistics moving forward. We miss bowling and we miss you all. We hope that you are all doing well and staying healthy and safe. Please reach out via email at email@example.com if you have any specific questions that we can try and answer or even just to check in to let us know how you are doing. As always, you can follow us on Facebook for updates as well.
