March 14, 2020 SPA CITY CLASSIC CANCELLED
March 12, 2020 GREAT NOR'EASTER CANCELLED
It is with deep regret that I cancel the 2020 Great Nor'easter I and Great Nor'easter II. It hit me this morning at 2 am that all of this work that we are doing trying to keep this thing going is great, but it is hurting the people that we work with and that is you the coaches and club directors. I know that you have been going through it trying to calm people down and listening to everything from - is it still on?and where's the schedule? We are here to do things for kids. COVID 19 is new to the rule book and I hope these people understand all that you do for them. Thank you for all that you do to support our tournament. Cancel your hotel rooms now!
My sister Kristin, Jenn Loud and the originator of this tournament Loretta Nerney have worked tirelessly these last three weeks to keep things going with schedules, binders and sites. It bothers me that I have to do this because of all the long hours that they have put in.
As far as refunds go we will sit down over the next week - it looks like we will have a lot of time to do that! - and see what we can do. It looks like we can get you between 300-375 back per team. There is just so much that goes into this all year. We need to talk to prepaid sites and get their thoughts. We will do the best that we can to get you some of your money back. We want to do this for the people that support us every year.
Take care during this crazy time. All of you are in our thoughts, as are your families.
