2020 Seniors Tournament (Dec. 5, 6, 11 & 12, 2020)
Due to the restrictions put into place by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, these tournaments have been cancelled.
We are hoping to re-schedule these tournaments if dates can be worked out with the Proprietors.
Any entry fees that have been submitted for these tournaments will be refunded.
Due to our extended “Stay at Home” orders the board of directors has decided to cancel this year’s city tournaments. This will include the Open, Women, and Youth. We also have some updates on our banquets, scholarships, and annual meeting. Please read the attached letter for all of the updates on the remainder of the 2019-2020 season.
Complying with the newest regulations our Adult and Youth City Tournaments are postponed until further notice. With regulations and information changing hour by hour, there is a chance that the tournaments will be cancelled completely. We will update everyone as soon as we have enough information to make further decisions.
