MN USBC Bowling Update (Jan. 18, 2021)

To the Minnesota Bowlers of the MN USBC:

Hoping that these notes today find our membership well and ready to head back to the Bowling alleys of Minnesota.

As you all know there has been some softening of the Governor’s mandates allowing some activity to once again start around the sport we all love and appreciate.

I wanted to take a moment to update our membership on the plans that have been made to move in this general direction by your organization as well. The Board of Directors met 1/17/21 to discuss the matters that I will touch on as well as other items in the management of the MN USBC

  1. The planning for our annual meeting and Hall of Fame banquet which was to take place in March is being postponed until probably May if conditions allow. It is the consensus that March is just too early to make solid plans. Also, especially in the case of the Hall of Fame banquet it is still too risky to expect our senior members to come out for an event. We will publicly recognize our HOF members that have been voted in as conditions allow for that gathering.

As far as the business of our organization is concerned we will continue to take care of business with the group that we have had to this point. Our organization continues to be strong and in good financial condition; and ready to get back to bowling as we all remember it. Any questions may be directed to myself or to the State Bowling Office if there should be any.

  1. The MN USBC Women’s Tournament will begin March 5th, 2021 and run until May 2nd, 2021. Sherri Hoheisel is close to being able to schedule bowlers for the tournament; she will have a message to the bowlers in the next few days on procedure for reservations. REMEMBER, every team will need to touch base to secure a reservation in the tournament.

  2. The MN USBC Open Tournament will begin March 2nd, 2021 and run until May 16th, 2021. Dick Woelfel is the Tournament Director and will also be scheduling bowlers in the very near future. Here again stay tuned to this site as well as the MN USBC concerning procedures to get reservations established to bowl in this tournament. REMINDER, every team will need to touch base to secure a reservation in the tournament.

  3. The Mixed Doubles Tournament will proceed as scheduled at this time; consult the MN USBC website for the specifics concerning entering that competition.

  4. The MN USBC Youth Tournament is planning to proceed as scheduled at this point be sure to plan ahead and check out the entry specifics on the MN USBC website for the tournament.

As we all go forward; let us hope and pray that our progress continues forward. Remember our Bowling Proprietors, their employee families and the other products they offer to the public and support their businesses in that fashion as well. Be well and God bless….

2021 Open And Women's Tournament Update

Due to the Covid pandemic it's taking us a little longer
to work through squads, squad times and
how many participants we can have at the lanes.
We're giving it a little more time to see how much
more opens up by the Dept of Health for restaurants and bowling centers to know
what direction to take.

If you have reservations they are intact.  We hope to have a captains mailing going out by mid-November.
with entry forms.  Deadlines will be moved to a later time.

Thank you for your patience as we work through the final details of these popular Minnesota State USBC events.

2020 MN State USBC Annual Meeting, Hall of Fame, Jamboree Canceled

To the Members of the MN USBC,

As we all weather through the Covid 19 pandemic it has became necessary to once again examine scheduled events of our organization.

It should be once again be noted that the well-being of our members is the most important concern of our organization and your leaders. There are numerous factors that have brought us to the decisions that have been made; the most important is at this point the inability to predict what
our Governor and his staff will dictate, the course of the pandemic and what the results connected to this event will give us in the near months and the rest of the summer season. Unfortunately the best course of action is to be prudent and not put our members in jeopardy; that is the
course that has been decided. With that said note the following.

The MN USBC Board of Directors met by telephone conference 6/3/2020 and have came to the following conclusions.

1.) Cancel the 2020 Annual Meeting which includes the 2020 Hall of Fame Induction ceremony scheduled for August 2020. The next Annual Meeting, March 2021, is being planned along with public ceremonial induction of 2020 HOF inductees along with NEW HOF members at the 2021 HOF Banquet.

2.) Adopt the 2020 Organizational Budget as the guide for our 2021 fiscal year. (Our current budget is on course and should be an adequate guide for the coming year as well.)

3.) The extension of sitting Director Terms as well as that of expiring Executive Board Term through the 2021 Fiscal Year. These positions to be addressed with annual business at the 2021 Annual Meeting for the remainder of those terms.
a.) National USBC guidance supports and suggests
this course of action to assure that members continue with
representation during this unexpected and abnormal time. We as an organization are making the appropriate acknowledgement to the National USBC along the lines of this guidance.

4.) Cancellation of the 2020 Jamboree and Banquet that was scheduled for August 2020. (Planning for the 2021 Jamboree has already started.)

If there are any questions please direct them to our association office or to myself. We all pray for this pandemic to pass swiftly and for the "normal" interaction of our bowling organization to return to us all. I also encourage each bowler to consider supporting our local houses the best we can; if that is take-out food, or curb-side services keep them
in mind too so they are there when this passes and bowling play can return. Most of all blessings to each of our members and our families and "be well", see you on the alleys....

Gregg Moyer, President MN USBC
