Chicagoland has mailed out letters to all team captains regarding our Women's Championship Tournament scheduled for May 2 &3, and 16 & 17, 2020 today. This is a copy of what was mailed out. We hope to see everyone at our 2021 Women's Championship Tournament!
Due to ongoing concerns with the pandemic facing our Nation, and the likelihood of the limitation on large groups continuing throughout much of the upcoming months, Chicagoland USBC has made the very difficult decision to cancel our Women’s Championship Tournament for this year. Without knowing any sort of timeframe as to when it will be possible to reschedule, it is almost impossible to schedule new dates for this year. As the team captain we are requesting you speak with your other teammates and choose from one of two options: 1. Request a refund in writing (either by email to email@example.com or by mail) and when it is possible for us to return to the office we will mail a check to the team captain to be distributed to your teammates. 2. Request in writing (email or by mail) that your entry fee be held for next year’s tournament which is scheduled for May 1 & 2, 8 & 9, 2021, and we are going to try our best to negotiate with Waveland and Diversey River Bowl where it was scheduled for this year. If you chose to have your entry roll over to next year, this will ensure that if there is a price increase, you will not have to pay the increased price. Please notify us in writing as to what your team would like to do. We thank you for your understanding and support during these unprecedented times.

If you have a paid reservation for this weekend or the youth tournament on the 22nd and would like a refund please contact our office and we will be more then happy to provide one. The office number is 708-236-0100 x110 or you may request a refund by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
