Leagues are now forming for the
2020-2021 bowling season.
State "Guidelines" for the 2020-2021 Bowling Season
It is very important that each captain make their bowlers aware of the "guidelines" that MUST BE FOLLOWED AT ALL TIMES. The state will be sending in health inspectors to make sure that we are following all of the NY Forward Guidelines that the Governor has put into place. They are the following...
Face coverings must be worn at all times. Even when bowling. The only time it is acceptable to remove your face covering is when you are seated at your table. There are no exceptions to this and this is the first thing health inspectors will be looking for.
We must maintain the proper 6' distance between one another during league play whenever possible. We have installed physical barriers between each settee area to further protect our bowlers. We are asking that the team on the odd lane sit down in the settee area while the team on the even lane sits at the blue tables on the concourse. This will prevent two teams from sharing a table and allow for the proper 6' social distancing.
You must remain at your lane. You are asked not to walk around and visit with other bowlers or teams.
We are required to be at 50% capacity at all times. Please do not have friends or family come to watch.
ADHERE TO DOH STATE-ISSUED GUIDANCE FOR FOOD AND BEVERAGE
When ordering alcohol you must purchase a "substantial" food item AT THE SAME TIME. There are no exceptions to this and they are coming around and looking at receipts to ensure there is a food item on the bill. A small french fry is not a "substantial" food item. We will be offering our league bowlers a low-cost sandwich that will qualify as a "substantial" food item. You will be asked when it is served if you would like to consume it or donate it to a local shelter. If you are only ordering it so you can drink then we will take it back and donate the sandwiches to a local shelter in need. These sandwiches will be sold to you at cost.
If you order a bucket for the team then you must purchase a "shareable" food item. Our Roll Combo or Sampler Platter would qualify.
We recommend leaving a tab open for the duration of your stay. This will allow you to order multiple drinks WITHOUT having to order another food item. If you choose to pay for your purchase and "close out" your tab and decide you would like another alcoholic beverage, you will have to order another food item.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THIS IS NOT OUR RULE. WE ARE TRYING TO MAKE IT AS EASY ON OUR BOWLERS AS POSSIBLE SO PLEASE DON'T ARGUE WITH YOUR SERVER.
We are at 50% capacity in the bar as well. All of the table and bar stools have been space 6' apart to ensure that we are meeting State recommended guidelines. Once the seats are taken or the bar stools are filled we cannot allow any other chairs to be brought into the bar. You are also not allowed to stand and/or walk around while you are in the bar. The State is requiring everyone to remain seated at the bar or tables. We cannot reserve bar stools or tables. We suggest remaining at your lane after bowling and we will have the server stay to take care of you. We will have the TV sound playing over the sound system and whatever event is on will be on the large projector's and the TV's over the lanes.
TEMPERATURE CHECK STATION
We are asking everyone to enter through the door near lane #13 instead of going through the bar door. We will re-address this when winter comes to make sure we aren't tracking in snow and water. When you walk into the building you will be asked to scan at the temperature check station. It will detect whether you are wearing a mask and it will tell you your temperature. If anyone is over the allowed 100.4º temperature the system will alert the customer and ask them to exit the building. It will also send an instant text message to the front counter with the picture of the customer so that management can ensure the customer does not enter the building. This system does not collect any personal information and only scans for temperature.
