2019-2020 Thunder Season

Hello Thunder Families!

 
It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing that we are canceling the rest of the 2019-2020 Thunder season.
 
As I am typing this, I am thinking about how all our lives have changed the last few weeks.  The only constant I can find in all this is uncertainty.  In talking with our Board of Directors, that seemed to be the theme - the not knowing.  Some clubs are still hanging on to the hope that the season will resume.  Most of our teams would be done the end of April/early May.  I don't see things changing that rapidly that volleyball tournaments will be back on.  The schools are closed until at least May 4th and the governor hinted the other day that school may stay with distance learning until the end of the school year.  I think it is the right decision to cancel the remainder of the season.  And at least we are not living in limbo regarding volleyball.
 
 
Now on to the financials....
 
Regarding refunds: those that pay by check - your March check was already been cashed.  Those that pay by credit card - your card has NOT been charged for March.  Refunds will be made to those you pay by check with March being pro-rated to 2/3rds the cost.  Credit cards will be charged 2/3rds for March.  Those that have paid the season in full, you will receive a refund for 1/3rd of March along with April and May.  No payments for April or May will be processed, regardless of how you pay.
 
There is one hiccup in issuing refunds and charging credit cards - our BAC treasurer has all that information at his office.  Per Governor Walz's order, he cannot return to his office until April 13th.  So refunds/charges won't be done until the week of April 13th.  Once those payments start being issued/charged, I will let you know.  Please note that I do not keep your payment information with me and I do not have the authority to issue payments myself.
 
 
We are still planning on hosting a 'virtual' banquet with coaches, players and families.  More to come on that.  And the coaches want to plan something with the players this summer, once all of this is over, to say goodbye and have some sort of traditional closure on the season.
 
Again, we are all saddened by this decision. It is not one we made lightly.  Our main focus is on our players - keeping them safe and healthy.  There will always be next year.  And I hope you all come back to Thunder with a greater appreciation for the game you love and lost for a while, for your coaches and teammates, and all the hard work everyone has put into this club and your team.  This will only make us stronger and more determined.
 
Thank you for being part of our Thunder Family.  We appreciate you and WE MISS YOU!!
 
Practice patience.  Be kind.  And whatever you do, stop touching your face! 😉
 
Stay well, Thunder Family!  We will see you soon.
 
Cathy
