Messages from the President 2020

Please note the two messages below from the SCUSBC President Debby Kicklighter. One is about the Pepsi Tournament being postponed and the second is about future events.

Dated:  13 March 2020

Pepsi Youth Bowlers and Parents

I would like to offer my apologies for such short notice on the postponement of the South Carolina Pepsi Youth Championship.  Over the past several days, there has been much discussion as to whether to have the tournament or not.  Tina Brown, Tournament Director and Sandy Wallace, Youth Tournament Director have worked hard trying to prepare for the tournament.  Kay Mitterling, Association Manager and I have watched news reports and I continued monitoring the coronavirus  in the Greenville area.

Today, as we were on our way to Greenville, I received telephone calls about the Governor’s address and the President’s address.  I thought the best thing to do was to postpone the Pepsi Tournament.

After the decision was made, USBC posted  “USBC recommends USBC state and local associations postpone or suspend mass gathering events, meetings and travel in the best interest of public health. USBC Also recommends associations be proactive in considering the wellbeing of their members.”

My concern today was for the bowlers, parents, tournament workers and center employees.

Tina is currently working on rescheduling.

Again, I offer my apologies.
