Event Information

SPECTATOR LIMITS:

OVR staff has been diligently working with the Greater Columbus Convention Center and the City of Columbus Health Department (Columbus) to ensure the Girls WinterFest (Jan 23-24) is a safe, successful event to get the season started. Our mantra throughout the pandemic has been “patience, flexibility & understanding.” A safe return to play, and the health and wellbeing of our members, is our priority. In that endeavor, the OVR will work to provide the best playing opportunities possible, while adhering to limitations imposed by health departments and other agencies.

Today, we have been informed by the City of Columbus Health Department that spectators will NOT be permitted inside the competition halls for the Girls WinterFest. We recognize the importance of parents supporting their children’s endeavors, and we understand the concerns this may cause. We exhausted all avenues to find alternate solutions that would allow parents to be near the event, i.e., in the GCCC concourse, food courts, etc. Our ideas were turned down by the CCHD and GCCC.

We are currently evaluating options to “live stream” matches so that spectators might watch using their mobile device or other viewing monitor.

We maintain daily communication with the GCCC and CCHD, and we will share any important updates with participants as quickly as possible. If the CCHD “no spectator” restriction impacts your team’s decision to participate in the Girls WinterFest, please notify us as quickly as possible. We understand you may need to consult with parents from each team. The alternative is to cancel the event, but we strongly feel that the event can be conducted safely and successfully, despite some limitations. Please let us know by Friday, January 8, 2021, of your plans to participate.  Send an email to: herbert@ovr.org and tell me if you wish to withdraw any teams.  Checks have not been deposited and will be shredded.

We will be using three team pools throughout the event. If an age division ends up with a non-multiple of three, we will have to get creative.

 As we’ve heard throughout this pandemic, “we’re in this together.” We will continue to work with you to provide safe, exciting volleyball opportunities to all our members.

Ron Wyzynski, Bob Price, Al Herbert and Brian Hemelgarn
