The Dutchman Bolony Bowling Tourney is saddened to announce we have made the difficult decision to not continue the 72nd 2020 Dutchman Bolony Bowling Tournament.  The tournament was able to bowl one weekend in March.  We are working on the details of prize distribution.  More information on final standings later. 

After exhaustively researching information concerning our current situation, we have regretfully concluded that it simply is not feasible to host an event of the Dutchman Tournament’s scope and caliber during these difficult and unsafe times.  Given the current challenges of travel, the constraints of social distancing, and the possibility that the bowling centers could be closed at the last minute by state officials weighed heavily into our decision.   What was of upmost importance to us is the ability to provide a safe environment for our officials, center staff and competitors.  

Factors that weighed into our decision:

  1. Masks
  2. Check-in process
  3. Social distancing for participants
  4. Use one lane or two – We only considered using pairs to bowl
  5. Can spectators attend
  6. Cleaning after squads
  7. Squad segregation – waiting in vehicle, until prior squad leaves, to enter building.  Cleaning the building.  Organizing the participants to enter the building in a safe manner, 6 ft apart.
  8. We pride ourselves on Pennsylvania Dutch hospitality.  Unfortunately, this would not be the case this year.  We hope to continue our “friendliest tournament around” status for many years to come!  

Refund and 2021 Reservation Information

I respect everyone has an opinion. I have kept the faith for months.I hoped and prayed that the tournament could safely start by July.The data above outweighs the pros of hosting the tournament.I am saddened that I will not get to see all the bowlers this year!I feel grateful for our group leaders who worked hard to organize groups only to have the tournament cancelled.These leaders are one of the biggest reasons our tournament is thriving.Their time spent this year is most appreciated and they have a special place in my heart.

I appreciate your support and friendship over the years.    We will see you in 2021!  Stay safe.
