Regarding capacity limits... Yesterday (June 2nd) new rules came out regarding square footage and Fire Marshal codes of occupancy for Covid. (We had these last year as well). At this time, I do not believe even with spectators we will reach our capacity OTHER THAN DURING SHIFT change. If everyone is accommodating, in weeks past we asked folks who were not bowling to move to the Arena for a short time and used other areas of the building other than the Main Bay to pay jackpots and brackets. Postal committee did a great job with us and it all worked out well.
(Having said that...) If you have SEVERAL spectators for 1 bowler, we are still obligated at social distancing and that means limiting chairs behind the lanes at certain points. If you can live with that...then bring your peeps!
Check-ins are still one hour prior to bowling, and we are still having brackets and jackpots.
On an additional note: The city of Allen Park is doing road work in front of Thunderbowl Lanes. This may cause traffic congestion and slow traffic.
PLAN AHEAD, GIVE YOURSELF ENOUGH TIME TO GET THERE, CHECK-IN, AND BE READY TO BOWL ON TIME!
The Postal Federal tournament and Thunderbowl lanes will do everything possible to keep all bowlers and their guest safe and still have an enjoyable experience.
Safeguards for keeping bowlers safe include: Counter shields. Mask will be required in all areas. A waiting area for bowlers and guest between shifts.
Spectators will be allowed, but there is a capacity limit for the building. Busier weekends may be more restrictive than lighter ones.
We ask everyone to be patient and flexable. This situation can change from day to day or week to week.
Social distancing will require you (the bowlers) to be respectful of each other.
