OLDS TEAMS NOTICE !!
WILL BE SHORT MEETING THURSDAY NIGHT FEB-20TH-2020 AT THE BOWL .
7 P.M. Everyone Welcome .
Tournaments Cancelled 2020
Hello to all players in the Big Country Pool League Systems . This has been a very unfortunate situation and the Gov't proposed guidelines and timelines have to be followed , group gatherings and the permits needed for our size of events will not be permitted , until 3rd stage of re-opening . Mid August 2020? Maybe even later if Virus surges ? For now it's been decided to refund prize monies back to the teams .
Captains will be contacted within next couple weeks to organize pick up of Cheque for your team. We may have an early fall tournament when permitted to do so ,open to all our leagues ,just to get all pool friends /family together for great time. As most players I to prefer to have our year ends ,but not permitted to this season .Hopefully see you all back next season.We'll be bigger ,funner and better ,making up for the short season this year .
Take Care ,Stay Safe
Thanks Again for supporting local pool leagues
