Re(3): South Florida Casino's shuttin down...I seen today.. Posted on March 17, 2020 at 00:59:38 AM by Stu Neiman
The State requested a plan of action from the operators and the tracks got together on a call so as to be consistent. Interim steps such as limiting the number of patrons allowed on the gaming floor, creating distance between operating machines and limitations on hours were all generally agreed to - temporary closures might still be inevitable.
The Magic City court is separate from the either the gaming floor or poker room and is closed to the public and non-essential employees. Our practices have 4 players scheduled with either Arra or myself supervising. We use a separate entrance. During practices we have fewer than 10 people in the area. We will continue to practice Monday through Thursday with Arra and I alternating days. Players who either become symptomatic or have a known or suspected exposure will of course be excused.
We are on schedule to start the first Thursday in May for our 2020 season and are prepared to play without live spectators if necessary.
We are still looking towards a 30-day-check-in for the tournament and are not prepared to announce a postponement at this time but postponing the tournament may be unavoidable in light of emerging restrictions and in order to preserve the health and welfare of all tournament participants.
I hope you are all taking the precautions you feel to be appropriate as the last thing we need is any further diminishment of the Jai-Alai aficionado community because of COVID-19. Would hate to add this event to the long list of things that “happened-to-Jai-Alai.” Be well / Stay We’ll!! Replies:
