AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE DOUBLE R BAR REGULATORS
Dear California State Match Shooters:
It is with heavy hearts that we inform you of the postponement and rescheduling of the California State Match from April 1-5, 2020 to September 3-7, 2020 ~ over Labor Day weekend. By September the health danger we face hopefully will be mitigated. It is our sincere hope that our currently registered shooters will stay registered for a great time at the California State Championship match in September and not cancel. There is no need to reregister for the new date; your current registration and payment are good for the rescheduled September date.
Our biggest concern since the outbreak of the Corona virus has been ensuring the safety of our cowboy and cowgirl friends. We have planned for weeks now on how best to safeguard the health of our beloved attendees. Many health conscious plans in line with CDC guidelines had been devised which until the events of the last couple of days seemed workable. Unfortunately, the newly recommended and even required group meeting limitations of no more than 10 people are now too substantial to overcome.
We would respectfully ask you to not cancel for the new date unless absolutely necessary. As you can all imagine, at this point a significant amount of money has been spent on championship buckles, awards and nonrefundable deposits on the many items necessary for the match. These essential items were ordered months in advance to ensure availability. Most of the deposits will still be good for our new date in September. In all honesty though, we will experience a tremendous financial hardship if too many refund requests are made. United together we can survive this unprecedented national health emergency. We greatly appreciate your understanding of the need for the changed date and your continued support of our club.
Please let us know at your convenience if you are able to attend the 2020 California State Match September 3rd through the 7th. We’re trying to look on the bright side. After all, there is no crying in cowboy action shooting!
Love from your Double R Bar Family
