Virginia State Women’s Tournament Cancelled

Hello fellow Virginia State bowlers:

With the events of the last few days, the Virginia Women’s State Tournament has been cancelled. Tournament Director Anne Ray will be issuing refund checks to the team captains in the next few days. We will visit the possibility of holding the Tournament later once this crisis has passed. We regret having to make this decision and will miss seeing you all.

The Virginia State Board of Directors will meet on April 19, 2020, to determine what action, if any, will be taken on the Virginia State Open Tournament scheduled to start May 16, 2020. Please follow the Virginia State USBC website for updated information.

Also, the decision has been made to cancel the Virginia State Annual Meeting on May 9, 2020 in Richmond, Virginia.

We wish you well and good health until we can see you again.
