2020 KBF Pro Tour – Pickwick, Wilson, Wheeler

December 31, 2020


To safeguard our members and host communities’ residents, this event has been postponed. KBF’s goal is to reschedule it for a date later in 2020. If this can be done in coordination with KBF Partner clubs and other circuits, and considering host and sponsorship support, site availability, and CDC recommendations, we will communicate new plans as soon as possible.

We should consider contingency plans in case travel and assembly restrictions are reimposed this fall, in case we need to cancel the October 7-9 events.
