Due to Covid-19, OTBA cancels the Ivan Nelson 
Provincial Youth Tournament for March 2021.

February 3, 2021

The OTBA Board of Directors has voted to cancel the Ivan Nelson Provincial Youth Tournament scheduled for March 2021.  Please pass this along to all of your members as soon as possible.

Due to the cancellation of the Canadian Youth Championships by the Canadian Tenpin Federation earlier this week we felt this was the best option. 


Our duty is to make sure that all of our members, families, friends and the community are protected and we must follow all of the Ontario Public Health unit's guidelines.

This notice will be posted on the OTBA Facebook page today.  Please direct any questions to am@otba.ca.  Everyone must wear a mask, wash their hands, social distance and stay at home during this lockdown so we can defeat this virus soon.

Thank you all for supporting OTBA.

 

 

Due to Covid-19, OTBA cancels the Doug Imms Memorial 
Provincial Youth Tournament and the OTBA Adult Tournament, for May 2021.

January 22, 2021

The OTBA Board of Directors has voted to cancel the Doug Imms Memorial Provincial Youth Tournament and the OTBA Adult Tournament, both scheduled for May 2021 at Rev's Rose Bowl in Windsor.  Please pass this along to all of your members as soon as possible.

This decision was not made lightly.  Because of the rising number of cases in Ontario and the fact that the vaccine will not be available to all Ontarians until at least September, we felt that it was necessary. 


Our duty is to make sure that all of our members, families, friends and the community are protected and we must follow all of the Ontario Public Health unit's guidelines.

This notice will be posted on the OTBA Facebook page today.  Please direct any questions to am@otba.ca.  Everyone must wear a mask, wash their hands, social distance and stay at home during this lockdown so we can defeat this virus soon.

Thank you all for supporting OTBA.
